Norse old-school Black Metal miscreants WAN are set to release “Wan Way to Hell,” their third and most devastating album to date.

“Wan Way to Hell” is pure audio vitriol. In recording the album, this unholy pack of bastards has succeeded in their one mission – fucking destroy!

WAN has fired the first shot with the video for King of Evil. Hail the king at https://youtu.be/1nbTQ99fnw0

Carnal Records will unleash this demon on February 10.

“Wan Way to Hell” Track Listing:

1 – Known as Dead

2 – King of Evil

3 – Till Kamp

4 – Igeltjärn

5 – The Challenger

6 – Wrought

7 – As If

8 – Spitfire Metal

9 – Full Sving

10 – Piss on your Grave

11 – Svarthäll

12 – Inn i Ilden

13 – Wan way to Hell

WAN was formed in 2009 as a triad of aggression with the intent of bringing metal back to its roots – raw, filthy and in the gutter with a twist of punk. A year later, the band released its first full-length “Wolves of the North.” The album was reissued on limited-edition cassette in 2011.

Core members Aganaroth, Isengrim and Tsjud recruited drummer Dimman for the debut’s 2013 follow-up Enjoy the Filth. Dimman’s time in WAN was short-lived, opening the door for current skin-basher Draup.

“Wolves of the North” was re-recorded in 2015 and released together with “”Enjoy the Filth” as a limited gate-fold double LP. WAN that same year recorded five new tracks Necroholic, a split-CD with Curse and Styggelse and released a video for “Pentagram Rockers,” off the second album.

The band has since brought their primal, old-school Black Metal to several stages in preparation the oncoming slaughter of Wan Way to Hell.

HIDEOUS DIVINITY – Italian Death Metal Collective Prepares To Unleash Third Full-Length, Adveniens” Via Unique Leader This April; Details Revealed

Italian Death Metal collective HIDEOUS DIVINITY, featuring within its ranks current and former members of Hour Of Penance and Aborted, are preparing to unleash their third full-length via Unique Leader this Spring. Titled Adveniens and scheduled for release on April 28th, the follow-up to the band’s critically lauded Cobra Verde long player was recorded, mixed and mastered at Stefano Morabito’s 16th Cellar Studio (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse etc.) during the Autumn of 2016, includes a rendition of Sinister’s “Embodiment Of Chaos” and finds HIDEOUS DIVINITY offering up their darkest material yet.

“It may be pretentious to talk about evolution inside our musical genre, this is what Adveniens truly means for us,” elaborates guitarist Enrico Schettino. “Just when we believed that with Cobra Verde we reached a point of no return, our songwriting turned even more dark and monumental. Although we’ll never consider ourselves close to Lucyfyre, Adversarial, Deathspell Omega, and Akhlys, the influence of this new wave of obscure Metal on us these last years has been massive. The result is our most epic Death Metal effort ever conceived. ”

Stefano Morabito and his 16th Cellar Studios set up a new standard with the production of Adveniens,” he continues. “Never before has our sound reached such a level of uncompromising intensity without sounding forced or overproduced. The maniacal efforts made to perfect every single drum beat, vocal line and guitar chord almost caused a nervous breakdown but it truly paid off.”

“The entire album is a reflection on history and time, on the succession of futile ages, on the role of the poet as soothsayer and witness of the winds of time erasing each one of these ages from the face of the earth. A reflection on Walter Benjamin predicting the ‘adveniens’ of David Cronenberg, on Professor O’Blivion predicting an era when ‘all of us will have special names.’ Adveniens is a violent reflection on art.”

Further info on Adveniens, including teaser tracks and preorders, to be unveiled in the coming weeks.

Adveniens – Track Listing:

  1. Ages Die
  2. Sub Specie Aeternitatis
  3. Passages
  4. Angel Of Revolution
  5. Feeding Off The Blind
  6. When Flesh Unfolds
  7. Messianica
  8. Future In Red
  9. 9. Embodiment Of Chaos (Sinister cover)

Forged in 2007, HIDEOUS DIVINITY quickly established itself as one of the strongest rising European Death Metal acts, thanks to their signature brand of technical yet gloomy classic styled Death Metal. Often compared to the likes of Nile, Hate Eternal, and Immolation, the band’s two Unique Leader releases – 2012’s Obeisance Rising and 2014’s Cobra Verde – led to a successful European tour with Cannibal Corpse and Krisiun in the Spring 2016, as well as appearances at some of the most esteemed European Extreme Metal fests during the last few years.

The band will be playing several festivals this Summer including Colony Open Air in Italy July 23rd and Stonehenge Festival in the Netherlands on July 29th. Additional performance to be announced in the coming weeks.

Posted in Death Metal, Heavy Metal, Metal, metal music, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , on February 1, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Melodic Death Metal outfit Ritual of Odds from Greece have signed a worldwide deal with Swimming With Sharks Records. The band’s third studio album ‘Ritual of 9’ was recorded at StudiOdds Recording Studio and was mixed & mastered by John Mcris. The band takes influences from bands such as At The Gates, In Flames, and Carcass and have been called the ‘Melodic Death Metal Masters of Greece’ by Axis of Metal (Canada).

Label founder Noah “Shark” Robertson (Motograter/Ex-The Browning) states: “Patras, Greece… What a great find! The moment I heard “Ritual of 9” I knew this band was something special. They give me the same feeling I got the first time I listened to At The Gates or In Flames. They have all the elements of a melodic death metal powerhouse!”

‘Ritual of 9’ will be available worldwide on Friday, February 3rd via Swimming With Sharks Records and can be pre-ordered at www.swimmingwithsharksrecords.com

The first single, and title track “Ritual of 9” is streaming here:

Ritual of Odds formed in 2003, originally under the moniker Existence Edge, but changed the name in 2005 and began work on their ‘Building up the Underverse’ Demo. In 2008, the band played this material live on stage for the first time and received great reviews, encouraging them to begin working on their debut full length album ‘Underverse’; which was released in early 2010. At the end of that same year, the band recorded their 2nd full length album ‘God is an Atheist’, which was very well received. The band toured Europe and the US, in support of the release, performing with bands such as OMEN (USA), PAUL DI’ANNO (UK), SEPTIC FLESH (GR) and NIGHTRAGE (SW).

The band is often described as Melodic Death Metal, but many influences can be heard. Ritual of Odds have forged a unique sound by infusing elements of thrash, horror and epic metal into their own, creative brand of melodic death.

‘RItual of 9’ Tracklist:

0. Ritual of 9
1. Hunt You Down
2. Feargas
3. Hate At First Sight
4. A Part of Me
5. Digital Hell
6. Why So Serious

KINGS DESTROY – Brooklyn Doom Rock Unit Drops “None More” EP Via War Crime Recordings; Band To Support Sweden’s Truckfighters On North American Tour

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , on January 13, 2017 by Metal Odyssey

Brooklyn-based five-piece heavy doom rock unit KINGS DESTROY drops a brand new EP, None More, TODAY January 13th, on limited-edition cassette via War Crime Recordings and digitally through streaming services. The follow-up to 2015’s critically lauded self-titled full-length, None More is a fourteen-minute epic broken down into six parts. The track showcases KINGS DESTROY‘s myriad influences, combining elements of doom, sludge, psych, rock, and metal into one sprawling, dynamic composition. It’s spaced-out, fuzzed-out, maxed-out, rock ‘n’ roll doom.

Notes The Obelisk in an extended investigation of the record: “None More moves through its extended but brief stretch, flowing not like a disjointed assemblage of parts, but with a careful and patiently executed arc. It’s not the first time KINGS DESTROY have told a story in their work, but it’s the first time they’ve put so much into the telling.”

Sample None More in full alongside an in-depth examination of the offering at THIS LOCATION. Order None More via War Crime Recordings RIGHT HERE.

None More Track Listing:
I. Rise Of The Betrayer
II. The Blood Waters
III. The Battle
IV. Requiem
V. The Awakening
VI. Rise of the Betrayer (reprise)

KINGS DESTROY will begin their latest North American tour on January 18th, supporting Sweden’s Truckfighters, before returning to the studio to record their fourth full-length in the spring of 2017.
