Song Of The Week: “Gravity” by Fleshgod Apocalypse

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, January 22, 2016 at 8:40 PM (PST)

12240114_10153629172856878_5461132264488191250_nFLESHGOD APOCALYPSE are one of the more cunningly revolutionary bands in heavy metal, fiercely symphonic and yet darker than most. The new track from the band was enough to make me pause a Firefly marathon for a swan dive into one of the coolest lyric videos I’ve seen in awhile. Veins full of gold dust, ancient books, greed and just all around awesome lyrics like “in delerium I obtain my obscure desires” make this a very absorbing adventure.

Another very worthy addition to the band’s growing symphonic death ball of fire which shall soon engulf the world.

“I feel the weight of metal.” Indeed.

It’s the attention to details, killer musicianship (including leads), strong yet navigable extreme vocals and a hint of madness that puts this band so far ahead of most of the pack.

Watch the captivating lyric video for the brand new song “Gravity” from the band’s upcoming opus KING, out worldwide on Feb. 5th –nuclearblast.com/fleshgod-king.

I’m certainly not trying to say that Behemoth are that similar to the recently departed Master of forms David Bowie, but the Polish death metal warlords along with bold tour opener Myrkur do share a similar undeniable boldness when it comes to not giving a flaming peacock in Hell of a fuck what others think.

I think in the year 2016 it is more important than ever to not give in to the impulses that hold back freedom of expression and growth, even when it comes to exploring the transformative power of the dark.

Both groups fly in the face of expectations, from Nergal posting cute holiday photos with his mum one minute to embodying sheer terror in the most boundary negating of masked forms via the “Blow Your Trumpets Gabriel” Behemoth video to Myrkur’s insistence that black metal can evolve to be not only more feminine but choral and melodic (even in the face of rabidly idiotic hate mail from BM conservative fuckwits). In the end, both groups leave listeners feeling like the rain is starting to fall on a charred landscape so new shoots can pop up.

Now the acts are aligned to show dimwits the world over what a commanding and vital metal tour looks like in 2016.

A limited number of premium ticketing packages that include a commemorative laminate, meet and greet with the band, 18″ x 24″ poster set (3 posters), 42″ x 42″ wall flag, and general admission ticket are available now at www.showstubs.com/behemoth. Only 50 fans per show can purchase the package, so reserve yours now! See below for all dates.

In addition to the concert, fans will also have the chance to view “The Congregation” exhibition at each venue. Dubbed “a symbiosis of Behemoth and Toxic Vision”, the display showcases the collaboration between the two parties. Over the years, the artist behind Toxic Vision (Sharon Toxic) has worked closely with the band to create their stage outfits, music videos, stage/photo props and more. “The Congregation” is a new experience and built solely for this tour.

Behemoth front-man Nergal comments: “We’ve always pushed ourselves very hard trying to reach the highest peaks of artistic creativity. This time around we are not only coming back to perform ‘The Satanist’ in its entirety, but are also bringing along a collaboration that’s unheard of! Toxic Vision’s renowned and absolutely brilliant artist and designer from Canada, whom we have worked with on several projects in the past (Behemoth stage gear, video clip costumes…) will be accompanying us on this trek with a unique exhibition called ‘The Congregation’! We are beyond excited to see how these synergies co-exist! Sharon, it’s an honour to welcome you on board!”

Adds Toxic Vision CEO Sharon Toxic: “It is a real honour to work alongside Behemoth and have this opportunity to bring a vision to life! We aim to dazzle and inspire, I am inviting everyone to step into the dark world of ‘The Congregation’ – an exclusive showcase of my work with Behemoth. Nothing like this has been done before, and of course, nothing is really as it seems with Toxic Vision. This is a culmination of craft and magic…once you step inside, you might never find your way out.”

Asphyx announce tour; working on new album

Posted by longhairedpoet on Tuesday, January 5, 2016 at 4:28 PM (PST)

Asphyx

Dutch doom-death warriors Aspyhx are working on the follow up to their 2012 album Deathhammer.

Vocalist Martin van Drunen had this to say about the progress of the album and touring:

“ASPHYX recently ended a small tour throughout Latin America, which was the first tour of the band for over 20 years. We performed in Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Sao Paolo, Curitiba, Santiago de Chile, Buenos Aires, Lima, Mexico City, San Jose and Medellin. Thanks to all local promoters and venues, D-19 and especially our dedicated and insane fans it became a fantastic experience we’ll never forget and a great success for ASPHYX. So a massive “cheerz a lot!” to everybody in making this possible and all the hordes that came to support the band. So many stories to tell, so many great times and shows we had. Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Peru, Mexico, Costa Rica and Colombia; all you crazy metal heads can be proud of your countries and continent where death metal is so very much alive. It was indeed Death… The Brutal Way! And let’s hope ASPHYX can return in the near future! In January 2016 ASPHYX will hit the rehearsal room to finish composing and arranging the final pieces for the follow up of Deathhammer. And then hit the studio for the primary recordings, which will also feature Stefan ‘Tormentor’ Hueskens on drums for the very first time. So we start the new year off promising and 2016 will definitely see another brutal ASPHYX album in our own particular style.”

I was going to take the day off from metal writing due to Lemmy’s death, but then I gathered myself and decided the show must go on. Lemmy knew rock n roll was a full time job and he taught us all that every day. We don’t even really take a holiday break around here, just crank the tunes more. This seemed due reason to post my final interview of the year for Metal Riot. And I can think of no better band than Pronostic from Montreal to fit the occasion.

Relentless and yet full of startling highs and growled anguish that defies the lows, the band are much like this past complex year was itself.

This Montreal older school sounding tech death band are monstrously impressive musicians, hovering under the radar but with killer material and lots of shows under thier belts. I do not know the band that well and was approached about them recently to check them out, but right away listening to their latest LP An Atomic Decision I recognize they are adept in walking the realms of metal. You don’t get as good as the music on their title track or or the solo frenzied brilliance of “Useless Wait” by being poseurs. This band sounds like they live for this.

That’s what music ought to be about.

Fans of Allegaeon, Hate Eternal and Neuraxis will quickly cater to aspects of the band’s potent sounds, but especially striking is the melodic power that seeps through the fiery charge of these songs. An Atomic Decision is with only the somewhat garishly nu-metal sounding monicker of an instrumental titled “Menstrumental” (nonetheless a terrific classical/metal showboat reprieve) slightly marring the proceedings.

And I’m sure we can all relate to the cover art.

Metal Riot recommends you dive in and prepare to step into the New Year scarred but unbroken BELOW.
