Electro-industrial metal titans ABORYM have announced the addition of guitarist Giulio Moschini (Hour of Penance) to the group’s ranks. Giulio brings a wealth of experience to Fabban’s band, having performed with ABORYM during their last live shows and after a very long career with Hour of Penance.

At the same time the band announced an amicable parting of the ways with their drummer, Bard “Faust” Eithun, who has been with the band since 2005.

“After the Emperor-gigs this summer it is my intention to calm down the band activities” – comments Bard. “Basically because I have reached a point where it is difficult to combine being in a band with family and other commitments and I am slightly fed up “being in a band” as such. Sadly this also involves Aborym so it is with a sad heart I have decided to leave the band with immediate effect. Next year I would have been a part of the band for 10 years and I appreciate the three albums we made together. However, it is time to leave the drum chair for someone who are actually able to provide the time and effort the band requires. I wish both Fabban and Paolo Pieri the best of luck with their future endeavours”.

ABORYM’s “Bleedthrough” music video released, the second video from the Industrial harsh metal clique’s Dirty release. Fabban’s (vocals) mask used in the clip has been created by Monica Mangioni and Alice Siracusano.

If you like caressing apparently voodoo’d brains and singing into/finger banging them as well in order to cause a young, ostensibly Norwegian woman to have a very bad day , you’ll love this clip!

The video – directed and filmed by Victorlab crew and Andrea Mazzucca, featuring model-actress Tanya Mishchenko – can be seen below.

Technical death metal masters ORIGIN have inked a European record deal with Agonia Records. The band’s new album – the follow-up to 2011’s Entity – is entitled Omnipresent and will be made available this summer. Cover artwork, tracklist, and other vital details will be revealed shortly.

I don’t know about you, but this news kills. ORIGIN are so nasty. Entity and that last Aeon record jump started my restored faith in death metal which continued with recent Hate Eternal and Gorguts. So cheers to more Origin!

Formed in Kansas (North America) in 1997, ORIGIN is one of the top, most intense and most brutal technical death metal forces to be reckoned with. Since its inception, the group has charted twice on the Billboard Top Heatseekers (with Antithesis at #21 and Entity at #20) and emerged on countless highly-energetic shows across the world. In 2007, ORIGIN reached Europe for the first time in career (on tour with Misery Index and Necrophagist) and five years later, in 2012, reclaimed The Old Continent together with Suffocation. This coming May, ORIGIN will be heading out on a headlining run in South East Asia and Australia.

The band made a statement regarding their new deal for Europe: “ORIGIN is proud to be a part of the Agonia Records family! We feel that this is the strongest move on our quest for total omnipresence, and are excited to share our latest cut of sheer technical brutality throughout Europe and beyond. We are everywhere and nowhere. We are Origin. Hail Space.”

Belgium’s leading black metal force ENTHRONED returns with a new studio album entitled Sovereigns. The follow-up to the critically acclaimed Obsidium (2012) is scheduled for an April 15th release via AGONIA RECORDS worldwide. Cover artwork and tracklist can be viewed Below.

“If you feel you put 100% into something, how can you feel regrets or disappointments? Sure, sometimes it gets annoying when people don’t get what you are trying to express but how can someone else’s point of view make you feel down about yourself if you know you gave your best? This is one of the biggest lessons to apply to life and art, and I’m doing it with relative success”-Davide Tiso.

The above quote is food for thought but also far too modest once you hear Ephel Duath mastermind Davide Tiso’s latest monster prog-metal EP. “On Death And Cosmos” (Agonia Records) features three soul shattering, mind liberating songs that twist and turn and regurgitate your mind out the other side. You’ll feel like you melded with dark matter or entered the negative zone or something. It’s jarring and massive stuff.

The best music takes you back to when you first heard it. I hear “Strange Television” by Dax Riggs and remember gazing out the window of the Lower West Side apartment where I used to live drinking malbec and dreaming of a woman. I hear the warm guitars of “Rocket” by Smashing Pumpkins and lose myself in the summers of my youth. “Toxicity” by System Of A Down brings back the metallic fear of 9/11 America. Similarly, “On Death And Cosmos” will rivet you and etch the time and place into your skin like a tattoo.

I talked to Davide Tiso and wife (vocalist) Karyn Crisis about the EP, the amazing line-up of themselves plus Steve DiGiorgio and Marco Minnemann, working with producer Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Agnostic Front) and more. Karyn even talks about her recently painted Major Arcana.

Album Review: Spawn of Possession – “Incurso”

Posted by Allred on Monday, April 9, 2012 at 9:42 PM (PST)

“Do you hear that Mr. Anderson? That is the sound of inevitability”. These words from Agent Smith (of the Matrix movies is case you weren’t in the know) are quite poignant when it comes to the topic of Spawn of Possession’s latest mind thrashing, Incurso. We knew it was inevitable, that it was only a matter of time before S.O.P. would emerge, once again, to throw their hat into the ring of the best technical death metal bands around. Six years after their sophomore release, Noctambulant, Spawn of Possession have not only come back to join the ranks of the best in tech-death, but have quite possibly jumped to the front line to spear- head the entire tech-death attack.

Opera IX releasing new album “Strix Maledictae In Aeternum”

Posted by Fireball13 on Thursday, November 24, 2011 at 1:56 PM (PST)

Italian black metallers Opera IX are releasing a new album “Strix Maledictae In Aeternum.” The album is slated to be released on January 24, 2012 via Agonia Records.

This is the band’s first album in 7 years. “Anphisbena” was Opera IX’s last full-length album which was released in November 2004 via Avantgarde Music.

With this album, the band wants to analyze all the visions that came from the darkest times of humanity, the medieval ages. The spirit of witchcraft and darkness are present among the songs. This gives the album a more symphonic, direct and agonizing touch, making it a lustful journey throughout the deepest and most macabre desires of man.
