The band will be touring in support of their third full-length, Where Owls Know My Name, set for release on March 16th – just one day after tour kick off – via Metal Blade Records. Whereas 2013’s The Conscious Seed Of Light and 2015’s Monarchy were thematically centered around spring and summer, respectively, Where Owls Know My Name represents the fall. And although that season is usually associated with death, for RIVERS OF NIHIL, the autumn serves as a rebirth.

Where Owls Know My Name reunites RIVERS OF NIHIL with Monarchy producer Carson Slovak (August Burns Red, The Last Ten Seconds Of Life) and Dan Seagrave, the storied artist behind such celebrated album covers as Entombed’s Left Hand Path and Suffocation‘s Effigy Of The Forgotten. Where Owls Know My Name is often just as punishing as its predecessors while assimilating ingredients from musical genres as varied as electronica, jazz, alternative, folk, and the golden age of Shrapnel Records. The resulting music is indescribably progressive, a multifaceted soundscape that goes beyond the wildest dreams of even the group’s most ardent admirers.

Sample Where Owls Know My Name’s “The Silent Life,” “A Home” and the title track at: http://www.metalblade.com/riversofnihil where the record can be preordered in various formats.

XENOKORP is proud to announce the signing of a multi-album deal with US dark Death Metal band SKINNED, the release of the group’s fifth full-length, “Shadow Syndicate“, on May 04 and the immediate launch of the FREE digital single / music videoWe Are the End“!

Firmly rooted in the Death Metal spectrum, SKINNED have since their inception in 1995, always combined styles to create their very own kind of Extreme Metal by twisting and re-shaping sub-genres, the result being a unique mix of Death Metal, dark Doom soundscapes, hyper blasts, Black Metal dramatic grotesquery and heavy slams.

This monstrous band’s ability to invoke innumerable extremes to create some of the heaviest, most epic, dark and brutal yet groovy brand of Death Metal is impressive. From their debut demo to present, the level of progression and diversification is vast and seemingly unstoppable.

Much like the relentlessness of their music, SKINNED continue to canvas the world with countless past tours and gigs on such sub/continents and countries as North and Central America, Europe, Russia, Japan, South Africa, South Asia… most recently with the likes of DEFEATED SANITY, KATAKLYSM, INCANTATION, CEPHALIC CARNAGE and many more, making SKINNED a globally recognized force within the Extreme Metal scene as a whole and that for sure won’t stop with their new deal with world-renowned management and booking agency THE FLAMING ARTS and the release of their brand new landmark album, “Shadow Syndicate“ through XENOKORP on May 04.

Varied in shapes and moods, “Shadow Syndicate”, produced by Dave OTERO (CATTLE DECAPITATION, CEPHALIC CARNAGE…) and featuring, among others, guest vocals by Josh WELSHMAN (DEFEATED SANITY…) and guest lyrics by Paul McGUIRE (CEREBRAL BORE…), is the kind of work of art that’s much more than a collection of tracks: it’s a world in itself where each song explores a different aspect of dark beliefs (conspiracy theories, unsolved mysteries…), the whole creating a society of extreme darkness under the domination of the New World Order where the citizens become cattle for the governments and guinea pigs for alien entities, ultimately leading your specie to its ultimate demise, the face under the merciless boot of the… “Shadow Syndicate“!

WEST OF HELL seamlessly incorporates elements of Thrash, Death, Tech melodic, aggressive, progressive, and timeless classic Heavy Metal. Blackened themes addressing the human condition dominate the lyrical content. WEST OF HELL’s new album unifies the genre!

WEST OF HELL will be presented on the new Imperative Music Compilation alongside Death, Cradle of Filth, Destruction, Hammerfall, etc.

TWITCHING TONGUES – Announces Tour With Hatebreed, Crowbar, And The Acacia Strain + US Headlining Shows Confirmed

Twitching Tongues - promo band pic - 2018 - #333MO88ILMWMSO

Southern California-based Metal/Hardcore outfit TWITCHING TONGUES will take to the streets again this March on tour with Hatebreed, Crowbar, and The Acacia Strain. The trek – set to run from March 16th through March 29th – comes in advance of a short US headlining tour from March 30th to April 8th. See all confirmed dates below.

TWITCHING TONGUES will be touring in support of their forthcoming new full-length Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, set for release March 9th via Metal Blade Records. The title for TWITCHING TONGUES‘ fourth full-length is drawn from a quote by famed social philosopher Eric Hoffer – “Passionate hatred can give meaning and purpose to an empty life.” Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred reflects the band’s mentality in approaching the record: paying homage to those who supported them while belligerently responding to their detractors.

With “failure” as a core theme driving Colin Young’s lyrics, it also features his first foray into the political arena, motivated by the contemporary political climate. Directly inspired by film scores, the record has a strong epic feel, the band realizing their vision of having the music flow like a story being told. While still maintaining the same levels of aggression that have traditionally characterized previous offerings, Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred features more immediate and memorable melodies that evoke the sound of 2013’s In Love There Is No Law.

For a first preview of Gaining Purpose Through Passionate Hatred, sample the band’s latest video for “Harakiri” (directed by David Brodsky) at  metalblade.com/twitchingtongues where the record is available for preorder.
