SIX FEET UNDER: Posted New Lyric Video “18 Days”

Today premier horror portal Bloody Disgusting hosts the latest “18 Days” lyric video from death metal merchants, SIX FEET UNDER. The apocalyptic hymn comes off the band’s forthcoming new studio effort, Undead, set for North American release on May 22, 2012 through Metal Blade Records. 

Notorious for his elegiac themes of murder, death and the supernatural, on Undead vocalist and lyrical mastermind Chris Barnes revisits topics that will be familiar to fans of the band, though as always he brings something new to the table, aware that their followers will not accept recycled ideas. Notes Barnes: “The hypocrisies of daily life, things that affect us that spawn aggression, loneliness, sadness, there’s a lot of emotions going on across the record, and I guess that the dark horror that humans cause is my niche,” However, while Barnes has a very clear vision for his craft, he is always excited by the interpretations of his songs by those who listen to them, feeding on the emotional investment they put in. “I love it when people tell me what they’ve got from the music and the lyrics. It’s like being an artist, you put the painting up on the wall – you know what it is, but sometimes it’s a little abstract and someone sees something else in it, and that’s the biggest compliment to me. That I’m able to get inside someone’s head and they actually give thought to something presented to them is inspiring to me too, and something I always want to be able to do with this band.” 

Peep the “18 Days” lyric video at THIS LOCATION.Undead was produced by Mark Lewis (Deicide, Devildriver), mixed by Jason Suecof (Whitechapel, Job For A Cowboy), at Audio Hammer Studios in Sanford, Florida and features the updated lineup of Barnes alongside guitarist Rob Arnold (ex- Chimaira), longtime guitarist Steve Swanson (ex-Massacre), bassist Jeff Hughell (ex-Brain Drill, ex-Vile), and drummer Kevin Talley (Dying Fetus, Misery Index, Chimaira). Last week Metal Blade TV aired an exclusive interview with Barnes as conducted by Metal Blade CEO Brian Slagel. To check out the interview, as well as first single, "Formaldehyde,” and limited pre-order options, point your browser HERE.

In conjunction with the release of Undead, SIX FEET UNDER will demolish the masses on a near three-week run of live rituals this June. The 18 Nights Of Blood Tour will begin in Atlanta, Georgia on June 8. Support will be provided by Dying Fetus and Revocation.

DEAD TROOPER ANNOUNCES NEW BASS PLAYER AND LAUNCHES SEARCH FOR GUITARIST


Thrashers
DEAD TROOPER have announced that BLODSPOR’s Andreas Stenvoll will be taking over the role of bassist which was recently vacated by Tor R. Staveness whose work with other bands such as 1349 no longer leaves him sufficient time to dedicate to the rapidly growing  DEAD TROOPERStenvoll, an old friend of the band and a former member of TROLL, has already started rehearsing and confirms that his work with BLODSPOR will not be affected.
 
As well as the new bassist,
DEAD TROOPER are also looking to recruit a guitarist to replace long-time member Birger Larsen, and are currently preparing to audition.  The band has, in fact, released a short video to give would-be applicants a taste of what to expect from its members.  Commented founder and frontman Meister Muller:  “We made a video because we thought it was important to give applicants an idea of what kind of personalities we have.  We like to enjoy what we’re doing, so if you have a tendency to be po-faced it’s definitely not the band for you.  However, I will stress that we have big plans for DEAD TROOPER, and we are deadly serious about our music, so, aside from great skills, we are also looking for someone who is prepared to commit not just their time, but also their soul, to the band. Auditions will take place in Norway and if chosen you must be available to rehearse on a regular basis in the Oslo area”.   Anyone interested in applying can contact DEAD TROOPER either though their Facebook page or via email to [email protected]. 

DEAD TROOPER, who describe their music as “groovy, aggressive thrash metal”, recently released the “live” album “No Tan En Vivo En Mexico”, which was inspired the band’s appearance at Mexico’s Wild Metal Fest last year and which was rained off after only one and a half songs into the set.  The album is actually a live studio recording of the set the band intended to play at the festival, and was digitally released in March of this year as a thank you to all the Mexican fans they met in a biker bar when the festival was called off, and for whom they played an impromptu set.  Negotiations are currently under way to release a vinyl version of “No Tan En Vivo En Mexico”, and DEAD TROOPER are currently looking for a label to release the band’s next full-length album. More information about DEAD TROOOPER can be found here.
 
Kiss of the Kannibal”, a track from “No Tan En Vivo En Mexico”, together with other tracks from DEAD TROOPER  can be heard on the SoundCloud player below.

STORMCROW`s "Disposition To Tyranny" out now!

Surpassing the human being, resisting to the instinct dissolution, now that the world finds in the order its idiot consolation, now that the ability to regress as specie seems to be what actually distinguishes us from the other livings. To be worms has never been so easy as at this time. Which musical genre better than Black Metal could successfully face these dramatic and crucial humanity themes? Which world if not the one of the highest peaks and glaciers could supply the purest artistic and philosophic inspirations capable to awake the asleep consciousness of the most?

The necessary condition to enter in this world, which is the leitmotiv of the whole album “
DISPOSITION TO TYRANNY” (2012), is to definitively forget the concepts of good and evil, to feel the Will as the drawing power of the existence.

As the attentive listener will catch in the remarkable lyrics of the album, the disposition to
Tyranny is far from being a political concept, but It has to do with the will of every fragment of the nature that struggles and pretends its place into the universe.

After their previous work “
WOUNDED SKIES” (2006 Dwell Records LA California), the Stormcrow quintet, formed by Zedar (Bass Guitar), Goraath (Drums, Voice, Keyboards), Narchost (Lead Guitar), Vastis (Voice) and Astaroth (Rhythmic Guitars), presents “DISPOSITION TO TYRANNY”, an album that benefits from a varied songwriting but solidly laced to the best violence and melancholy canons that the genre could offer, something that leaves room to the characterizing of each song even keeping at highest level the psychophysical involving of the listener.

The sensation of musical and conceptual deepness, the attention to graphic details and to stylistic production that you can feel meeting with the album “
DISPOSITION TO TYRANNY”, are supported by a great histrionic attitude to live performances.

Shining, Dark Funeral, Hate, Enthroned, Vader, Mortuary Drape, Negura Bunget, are just some of the bands with which
Stormcrow had shared the stage in years of shows through Europe like Belgium, Germany, France and Slovenia engaged in tours, gigs and festivals of the calibre of Metal Camp, to which the band took part in 2009, Filtrhock Festival and others. 

Stormcrow will play with GORGOROTH on Friday May 11th at Rock N’Roll, Romagnano (ITALY)!



MALEVOLENCE: More third album details revealed!

Portuguese extreme progressive metallers MALEVOLENCE have set ANTITHETICAL as the title of their forthcoming third album.

The main theme of the album illustrates a razor-sharp concept inspired from Ancient Greek Etymology (1580s, from Gk. ANTITHETIKOS) that reflects the diametrical opposition to a number of propositions consisting in the revelation of a divergent thought. Pertaining to
ANTITHETICAL, the Anti (against) + Thesis (position), as a figure of speech (mainly used by the authors of the Baroque period; style of the epoch known as the art of conflict) acknowledge opposition towards the relative thesis expressed.

MALEVOLENCE singer/guitarist/songwriter Carlos Cariano detaching a slight sparkle on the title and its significance, said:

“ANTITHETICAL is loaded with intoxicatingly corrosive contrasts whilst the album represents pure rebellion, a pure nonconformist extension towards the current situation of the globe, an upheaval towards the current language  that has no force of expression and no meaning, due to the predictability of words and counterfeit actions that have become commonplace worldwide.
Inner strength and living values nowadays are negatively base underneath relative truths and we are expressing ourselves precisely antithetically whilst insisting on critical thinking”.
 


Music and lyrics are far beyond the average practice and ANTITHETICAL is a very unnatural progressive slab of extreme sonic amalgamation creating parallelisms to simplify extremes whilst apprehending both the positive and the negative perspectives of existence, in order to erect with the synthesis that transcends both.

As Hope is
ANTITHETICAL to Despair, the contrasts established within the album serve in effect to give tension to the broad-spectrum body of work consisting of 7 songs.ANTITHETICAL includes the most epic material (longest song clocking at 9:27m), plus the heaviest proportional songwriting ever accomplished on the eighteenth year of existence of the collective.

Exploring experimental yet instrumental mind bending extreme metal structures, the album is a pure heavy mammoth demonstration on extreme progressive metal territory.

The final track listing and further details shall be revealed soon.

Moonspell: "White Skies" Video Teaser

Portuguese extreme band Moonspell  have posted a new video teaser for "White Skies" which can be seen below. "Alpha Noir/Omega White" was released on April 27, 2012 via Napalm Records.  The video for "Lickanthrope" can be seen at this location.

Moonspell returns to the scene with what might be the most important album ever to be released by this legendary Portuguese metal band. With a renewed focus, they have risen to a new level so as to reclaim their throne as the leading European dark metal band. "Alpha Noir" is a nine-track outburst that shows us a much more incendiary band than in the past. With an avalanche of memorable guitar work, deeply rooted in the thrash metal of legends, Moonspell perfectly combines it with their own brand of Southern black metal, which they have been crafting since their groundbreaking debut offering: "Wolfheart". The special edition will also include a second CD, "Alpha Noir's" remarkable counterpart "Omega White". It follows a more atmospheric path, delivering epic and catchy songs in the vein of gothic rock icons, such as Sisters of Mercy and Type o Negative. Torn between two worlds, the Alpha - with tracks like the savage "Lickanthrope" (to be featured in the band's first video clip), the majestic title track, or the epic closing "Grandstand" - and the Omega - with "White Skies", the sensual "Herodisiac", or the heartbreaking "Whiteomega"- make this release a bulletproof double album to present to the band's hordes of avid moon gazers. Produced by Tue Madsen and arranged by Benny Richter, "Alpha Noir" will take the world by storm. It is a genuine release by a legendary act, who never hid in the bushes waiting for their musical style to regain popularity, but rather kept their heads proudly above the water, while always working to achieve greatness. "Alpha Noir": we want a new world! And nobody can afford to be left behind in the coming of this new lunar age.

ENSLAVED Sign Deal With NUCLEAR BLAST for Worldwide


Nuclear Blast has announced the addition of progressive/psychedelic black metal band ENSLAVED to their worldwide roster. After two successful campaigns in North America with Nuclear Blast USA (via exclusive license from Norway’s Indie Recordings) for their past two albums, 2008’s Vertebrae and 2010’s Axioma Ethica Odini, ENSLAVED have signed a worldwide deal.

 From their home base in Norway, the band comments:
“We’re very, very (yes, very) pleased and proud to sign this deal with Nuclear Blast worldwide. We’ve already worked with Nuclear Blast US through our two latest albums and our personal friendships with NB guys and gals on both sides of the Atlantic are even older. There’s no drama – we take great pride in the fact that there seldom is with us; it is simply a matter of one contract ending and us going for what seems to be our best option at this point in time and space. This time, the best choice for ENSLAVED is changing things up somewhat. We’re excited to see what the mixture of passion and professionalism at Nuclear Blast can do with the ENSLAVED name in the years to come. There is no doubt that the level of ambition, the experience and seriousness about what we do form perfect common ground for ENSLAVED and Nuclear Blast. We’re in the process of making a new album that will initiate our new partnership. Watch out for the approaching wave of news about that. For now, let’s just say that the album will be an absolute (Nuclear) blast!”


Gerardo Martínez, Label Manager for Nuclear Blast USA, adds:

“ENSLAVED is one of the most amazing bands to ever come from Norway. We’ve had the pleasure of working with them on their last two albums in North America, and from this day forth, worldwide. Looking forward their new masterpiece to be unleashed to the masses later in the year!”

ENSLAVED’s new album will be released this fall.
