DUNGEÖNHAMMER – “Infernal Moon” Out Now

Posted in Heavy Metal, Metal, Music, music news, news, rock music, world news with tags , , , , , on October 14, 2018 by Metal Odyssey

Infernal Moon, the full-length debut from old-school black/thrash metal duo DUNGEÖNHAMMER, is out now on Pulverised Records. The album is available on CD and digital formats at pulverised.bandcamp.com/album/infernal-moon.

DUNGEÖNHAMMER was formed by two maniacs – one from The Netherlands, the other France – who met while studying in Milan, Italy. What started as a friendship born from a shared passion of ’80s thrash and speed metal bands soon became the repulsive, two-headed beast known as DUNGEÖNHAMMER.

With Infernal Moon, DUNGEÖNHAMMER delivers pure filth, hypnotic, convulsion-inducing rhythms and an uncontrollable urge to bang your head. DUNGEÖNHAMMER rounds out this mayhem with vocals reminiscent of Tom G. Warrior’s Hammer ov Hell days and a nod to early ’90s Scandinavian death metal.

Cover art by Timo Ketola (Watain, Deathspell Omega, Antaeus, Krypts). The vinyl edition of Infernal Moon is coming soon from Me Saco Un Ojo Records.

The New Mythology Vol.1, REVENGER‘s second studio release, is a five-song EP that expands on the band’s aggressive thrash style with tracks that are more technical, visceral and direct than debut album To The Wolves. Formed in 2012, the band introduces some key members that shape the sound and vibe of this EP, which is more calculated and driven than before.

Heavy guitar rhythms punctuated by a consistent thrash pulse breaks only when the groove requires and marks REVENGER’s particular style. The lyrics and gritty death vocals also bring out the rage and bitterness of the subject matter which, for this EP, is slightly more conceptual and inspired by comic books and how today’s mythology could become tomorrow’s dogma.

BAND BIO:

With the intent of bringing together technical thrash metal and gritty groove riffs, Revenger was born in 2012 through the hands of guitarist Jean-Pierre Poulin and drummer Chris Warunki. The pair had written music together before and the combination of their styles and personalities was a natural experiment. In March 2014, Revenger debuted in Vancouver to warm reviews.

Their first independent album To the Wolves came out in September 2014 with Jordan Knute (lead guitar), Greg Cavanagh (vocals) and Darryl Greer (bass). In early 2015, Revenger’s lineup evolved to include Julia Geaman (drums) and Andrew Bailey (vocals). The following year was largely focused on woodshedding, playing local and regional shows/festivals alongside renowned bands such as Havok, Beyond Creation, Archspire, Tengger Cavalry, Stryker and Unleash the Archers.

2016 saw the introduction of Sean Parkinson on guitar (replacing Jordan Knute), and the interesting switch from guitar to bass for founder and main song writer JP Poulin. Ending the year with a 5-song EP written and ready to be recorded in early 2017, Revenger is ready to tour extensively and work tirelessly to get their music out to the world.

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!”
