My Recent Metal Music Purchases – END IT, AHNA And SICARIUS On Cassettes!

Posted in Metal with tags , , , , , , , on May 4, 2020 by Metal Odyssey

I purchased END IT One Way Track on cassette from M-Theory Audio. END IT is a Hardcore band, hailing from Baltimore Maryland. This is a 4 song EP and it was released earlier in 2020, via Flatspot Records. I dig Hardcore and you should too.

I purchased this AHNA Crimson Dawn cassette from the fantastic Caligari Records. If you’re looking for legit underground Metal and/or Extreme Music then Caligari Records is the epicenter of said genres! AHNA hails from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. AHNA is one damn good, ass-kicking band. I absolutely love this band.

M-Theory Audio delivered once again for me, with this brain splitting release from SICARIUS. If you love Black Metal, you must check out SICARIUS and later send me an annual thank you gift for the next 25 years or more. SICARIUS hail from The Inland Empire in California. Hell and yeah. I’ve been listening to this SICARIUS cassette in my car to and from work for several days now and it’s so inspirational!!

Thank you for visiting Metal Odyssey. With countless other things you could be doing, checking in on what Metal I’ve been buying really makes my Metal day. Stay safe and cherish life. – Stone

LONG LIVE METAL.

LONG LIVE CASSETTES.

THE BLEEDING – Reveal Artwork, Details For “Morbid Prophecy”

Posted in Extreme Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on August 12, 2019 by Metal Odyssey

World War Now Records is proud to announce UK Extreme Metallers THE BLEEDING, return with their hotly anticipated follow-up Morbid Prophecy, to 2018’s critically-acclaimed debut album, Rites of Absolution. Morbid Prophecy is set for release October 18, 2019 and the album cover art has now been unleashed.

Lead guitarist Tasos had this to say about the new album: “‘Morbid Prophecy’ is an aural descent into hell that encapsulates the saga of the fall of man. The themes of desperation, destruction and death echo through the album in a cacophony of damnation. Man enters the abyss and surrenders to the scale of horror he witnesses. With a ravaged mind he returns to deliver pain and suffering to the unbelievers.

Musically ‘Morbid Prophecy’ has set new standards for us in speed, execution and brutality. The songwriting process has been long and relentless as we pushed ourselves to create a blistering album that builds on the ferocity of our previous release ‘Rites of Absolution’. We feel that we have accomplished that as the recording has fully materialized our vision”

Track Listing:

01 – Demonic Oath

02 – Maelstrom

03 – Entering The Pandemonium

04 – Morbid Prophecy

05 – Storm of The Hellspawn

06 – Sadistic Saviour

07 – Repentance

08 – Hammer of Penance

Formed in 2010 by Themis on vocals and Tasos on guitar, THE BLEEDING was soon joined by Jeff on guitar and Dimitris on drums. Sean on bass completed the line up. The band’s first public performance took place on September 30, 2012 at The Monarch in Camden Town, London and introduced Jamie on vocals. Death Eternal, the band’s debut album was unleashed in 2013. Followed by the 2018 release of the highly acclaimed Rites of Absolution album via World War Now Records.

CANNIBAL CORPSE continues to tour in support of their critically lauded Red Before Black full-length released last year via Metal Blade Records. Many words come to mind when you hear the name CANNIBAL CORPSE, but only one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it abundantly clear who sets the standard when it comes to manifesting consistently compelling music that is as brutal as it is complex. “Throughout our career, we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. Red Before Black continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster.

“We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the rawest sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest, and catchiest record.”

An aura of true Satanic majesty is unleashed in tracks like, “Temple of the Foul Spirit”, “Morbid Crucifixion”, and “Baptized in Satan’s Blood”. Bludgeoning guitars, battering drums, and haunting keys create an experience that will terrify the unbelievers and convert the uninitiated.

  2. Morbid Crucifixion
  3. Baptized in Satan’s Blood
  4. Beasts of the Infernal Void

_____________________________________

IMPRECATION Bio:

Formed in 1991, IMPRECATION has become a vaunted institution in the underground, with their now-classic Theurgia Goetia Summa compilation cited by bands across the globe. They have no need for trendy tags like “old school death metal”, for there is simply death metal as it it was intended – evil, dangerous, and crushing. Beware, for the Beast is upon you!

California Death Metal Horde DRAGHKAR To Release ‘The Endless Howling Abyss’ in July

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on May 31, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

California Death Metal Horde DRAGHKAR will release new EP The Endless Howling Abyss on July 27. The EP will be released digitally, as well as on CD format by Craneo Negro Records (500 copies) and on cassette through Nameless Grave Records (75 copies).

New song “Swallowed by the Dark” is now streaming. Listen and pre-order below:

draghkar.bandcamp.com/album/the-endless-howling-abyss

On The Endless Howling Abyss, DRAGHKAR have turned up the intensity and unleashed violence in its most lethal form. The forthcoming EP is a harrowing journey through 20 minutes of pure Hell, inspired still by the classic fires of ABHORRENCE and AMORPHIS, but now flavored by an increasing influence from the oldest days of the Greek Black and Death Metal scenes, as well as MOLESTED, MERCYFUL FATE, and more.

Track Listing:

1. Traversing the Abyss
2. Swallowed by the Dark
3. Eternal Disintegration (Of The Body And Of The Mind)
4. Fading into Emptiness

DRAGHKAR:

BW – Guitar, Vocals
Daniel Kelley – Bass
ES – Drums

BAND BIO:

Draghkar was formed in 2016 by BW as an outlet for his love of death metal. Originally a tribute to the elder days of the Finnish death metal scene, they put out their first demo on cassette with Witchhammer Productions from Thailand in 2017. It was re-released by Blood Harvest Records later that year. After a series of lineup changes, Draghkar released a split with Desekryptor in the earlier half of 2018 and have come back now with their most ambitious and original output to date, a four track EP entitled The Endless Howling Abyss.
