Dark Descent To Release DESOLATE SHRINE’s ‘Deliverance From The Godless Void’ In November

DESOLATE SHRINE - Deliverance From The Godless Void - cover promo - #3MO88ILMFSO33

Finnish Death Metal trio DESOLATE SHRINE will release new album Deliverance from the Godless Void November 10 on Dark Descent Records. The album’s opening track, “The Primordial One,” is streaming below and at https://youtu.be/4q2Ua5RV-pI

It may be DESOLATE SHRINE’s fourth album (third on Dark Descent Records) in six years, but the band shows no sign of fatigue on their newest opus. The band continues to erase the already thin line existing between Black, Death and Doom and once again come out of the abyss with their own instantly recognizable style.

Recorded during 2016 with the same core trio since 2011’s debut Tenebrous Towers, this new beast, while no less epic than its predecessors (three of the seven songs featured here are at over eight minutes long) is even more textured and tortured while at the same time highly atmospheric.  And while a track like “Unmask the Face of False” may be the heaviest and slowest they’ve ever done, that doesn’t prevent “Demonic Evocation Prayer” from being transfigured by hellish blast beats either. Still, as with each of their albums, DESOLATE SHRINE‘s latest full-length is to be considered like one big entity, almost like a ceremony if you will, one that demands to be experienced from beginning to end without interruption.

The album artwork was created by L.L. Dan Lowndes – mastered Deliverance from the Godless Void at Resonance Sound Studio.

TRACK LIST:

  1. The Primordial One
  2. Lord of the Three Realms
  3. Unmask the Face of False
  4. The Waters of Man
  5. The Graeae
  6. Demonic Evocation Prayer
  7. The Silent Star
  8. …of Hell

NECROT – “Blood Offerings” Enters Billboard Charts – US Tour With Undergang To Commence Next Week

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on June 23, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Necrot - Blood Offerings - Billboard album flyer - 2017 - #330MO33ILNF

“Blood Offerings is all old ground, but it is hallowed earth. We’ve heard everything played on this album before, but we’ve never heard it played quite like this. If you’re that curmudgeon who keeps saying nothing can displace your aging death metal album collection, it might finally be time to buy a new record.” – Decibel

Blood Offerings is the newest studio recording from Bay Area death cult NECROT. Released via Tankcrimes on June 9th, the record earned the #29 spot on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart and #52 on Billboard’s New Artist Chart upon its first week of release!

The eight ravaging tracks comprising NECROT‘s Blood Offerings were captured by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer (Vastum, Graves At Sea), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Gatecreeper), and comes shrouded in the unhallowed cover art of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness). Blood Offerings is out now on CD, LP, and digitally on Tankcrimes and on cassette through Sentient Ruin Laboratories. The limited vinyl edition comes as a foil-stamped, gatefold deluxe LP available in four-color variants: 150 in purple splatter, 350 in gold splatter, 500 in black, and 1000 in gold.

Stream the record in full at THIS LOCATION where you can also purchase the record digitally.

Find physical preorders at THIS LOCATION.

NECROT will embark on the month-long North American tour with Denmark-based Death Metal tyrants, Undergang, beginning June 30th and rolling through July 29th. The band will also make their way to Europe this fall for a journey that will include stops at Bloodshed and Graveland Fests. Further details to be unveiled in the coming weeks.

6/30/2017 Thee Parkside – San Francisco, CA

7/29/2017 Eli’s – Oakland, CA

Forged in 2011, NECROT – founded by current and former members of Acephalix, Vastum, Saviours, Watch Them Die, Atrament, Rude, and more – unleashed the audio bone-crush of their The Labyrinth full-length in 2016 via Tankcrimes. Spewing forth eight tracks amassed from three hard-to-find and long out-of-print demo tapes, the record reaped critical acclaim from fans and media alike compelled by the band’s unrepentant Autopsy, Bolt Thrower, and Sacrilege worship.

“Metaphorically, it’s like putting your ear up to the chest of a rotting corpse and listening to the parasites eat it from the inside out. NECROT has recorded an album so putrescent you can almost smell it.” – Paste Magazine

“…an album that does the region’s growling, guttural legacy proud, and with a new layer of contemporary punch.” – Treble

“…raw, fast and razor-sharp… a pummeling at its finest!” – Metal Assault

“…Blood Offerings separates itself from the pack by offering, in addition to blood, some damn fine riffs.” – Last Rites

“Engrossing from start to finish, NECROT have crafted a death metal masterpiece in Blood Offerings”that looks reverently towards the genre’s past while casting its own deadly shadow for the future.” – Riot Nerd

HOROMA EXORDIUM – New Single “Worlds Falling” – A Metal Odyssey Review

Posted in Black Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world music with tags , , , , on September 5, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Horoma Exordium - Band promo pic - band logo - 2016 - #MO66ILMFSO6933

Horoma Exordium are a Black Metal band hailing from Glasgow Scotland. Consisting of Aghast on instruments and recording and Bhaldraithe on vocals. It was born with a vision to create a ferocious incarnation of Black Metal whilst infusing other elements of Extreme Metal.

The new single from Horoma Exordium is as vile and poisonous a listen into Black Metal as I could ever wish for. This is Black Metal extremity at a very, very bang-up level, my fellow Metal brethren! This song is just as potent in its speed as it is on its fierceness. Musically and vocally this song encapsulates extreme Black Metal.

The breakdown half-way through the song doesn’t give me much room to catch my breath or slow my heart rate and it makes sense quite honestly. If you adore your Black Metal at its most crazed and evil level, then Horoma Exordium will answer your blackened call. Metal Be Thy Name – Stone.

For fans for Gorgoroth, Emperor, Anaal Nathrakh, Burzum, Satyricon and Mayhem.

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.

MEATWOUND – Announces A Rash Of Summer And Fall Live Actions; New Recordings On The Horizon

Posted in Extreme Metal, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music with tags , , , , on July 9, 2016 by Metal Odyssey

Meatwound - live promo band pic - 2016 - #MO990ILMF

Florida swamp rats MEATWOUND have locked up a series of live performances throughout the Southeastern region this week, with more shows booked for later in the Summer and Fall months. The band also unveils a vague sense of what’s going on behind closed studio doors with several new recordings penned.

MEATWOUND kicked off their run of live slayings this week with a show on July 8th, in Jacksonville, before transporting their carcasses north for a set at Blood Rust II Fest in Asheville, North Carolina, alongside the likes of Torch Runner, Die Choking, Uninhabitable, Thetan and many others. Following their raid of the fest, MEATWOUND will play in Chapel Hill with Die Choking this Sunday, then later in the week they play Savannah July 13th and Orlando on the 14th. August is already being booked, as the band will support Gruesome and others on the 4th and MEATWOUND is working on a string of shows with Nervous through the Southern states in October preceding their set at the massive The Fest gathering in Gainesville the final weekend of that month.

Uniting members of Combatwoundedveteran, Holy Mountain, Headless Dogs, Primate Research, and others, MEATWOUND‘s dangerous debut LP Addio was recorded with Dan Byer at Rock Garden Recording in St. Petersburg, Florida, mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound, and released in the gross Summer heat of 2015 via Magic Bullet Records. A thundering concoction of 1990s influences culminate in the MEATWOUND sound; the collective’s sound born in a sewage-drenched swamp gutter where the pentatonic, industrialized elements of crushers Fudge Tunnel and Godflesh meet a sordid death metal edge, meshing Sepultura tribalisms with a throbbing Big Black-style hardcore punk infiltrated by scuzzy sci-fi tones.

MEATWOUND is currently cutting the fat on new auditory beef for release in the months ahead, including a new LP for Magic Bullet and more.

MEATWOUND‘s Addio is available on CD, LP, and all digital setups; physical product can be obtained HERE.
