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

DESTRUCTION “Thrash Anthems II” – Releases On November 11th, via Nuclear Blast Records!

Posted in Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on September 17, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

From the Destruction facebook:

In 2007, DESTRUCTION proved how successful re-recording some of their timeless classics and re-imagining history could be. The follow-up to 2007’s Thrash Anthems is ready to rock the Metal world and shows how fans can be part of both a band’s history and future. For Thrash Anthems II, DESTRUCTION called upon on their loyal fans through PledgeMusic to help them create the record and contribute to the band’s epic history.

Mastermind Schmier states:
“As it is a part of our past to relaunch classic songs from our history with a fresh face and we had many demands on a Thrash Anthems continuation, we decided to do a second part of this re-animation of classic 80s DESTRUCTION material. For us it was important to choose the tracks with the fans and first when NB did not wanna do the album, we decided to do a pledge campaign to raise the funds for the production, together with the die hards.

To make a long story short, we know not everybody will like these new versions of those thrash evergreens (just listen to the originals then) but it was an important task for us to keep them alive for a whole new generation of metalheads that love those fresh and brutal new recordings. We are very happy now, that our label is finally releasing this collection of thrash classics. The vibe on this record is so vicious, uncommercial and has this 80s feeling with an even more aggressive edge and THAT is was made our THRASH so special, in the good old days and now!”

Communic - Where Echoes Gather - promo cover pic - 2017 - #33MO9933N

One of Europe’s leading and most popular Prog Metal acts is finally back: Norway’s Communic Official have made a lasting impression on the scene with their previous four studio albums “Conspiracy In Mind” (2005), “Waves Of Visual Decay” (2006), “Payment Of Existance” (2008) and “The Bottom Deep” (2011), which all have been released by Nuclear Blast. Critical acclaim follows COMMUNIC since day one and a devoted worldwide fan base is hotly anticipating the release of the first COMMUNIC album since six years.

With “Where Echoes Gather”, the band impressively confirms and underlines its exceptional status. COMMUNIC’s first album for AFM is nothing short of another dark and atmospheric masterpiece, created by the very same three guys who founded the band back then. COMMUNIC’s characteristic mixture of prog, power and thrash sounds as fresh and relevant as ever and will amaze the band’s countless fans to the fullest.

“Where Echoes Gather” will be available as Digipak and ltd colored Vinyl (250 units gold, 250 red/marbled).
