Australia’s #1 progressive metal export, Ne Obliviscaris have launched a forward-thinking new concept, one that could potentially help many bands the world over fill the gap in revenue that has dwindled over the years due to the decline in music sales and other revenue streams that once kept bands on the road. These days those tables have turned and artists need to tour to promote a release. Touring however, does not come cheap as the band go into heavy detail about in their statement below.

Having had one of the most successful music crowd funding campaigns ever via Pozible, NeO fans have proven their willingness to support a band that provides them with so much entertainment and meaning.

In 2014 the band raised over $86 000AUD via their fans, which broke the Australian record for crowd funding and to this day it remains one of the highest netting music campaigns in the world.

With NeO currently finishing up their massive North American tour with Cradle Of Filth, they are looking towards the future and that involves their fans at every conceivable level in a fashion arguably unprecedented in the industry.

Greek black metal freedom fighters Rotting Christ continue their exhalted career of twisting expectations into fragments with the first, gloriously smoking track “In Nomine Dei Nostri” from new album Rituals. Hear the dark gem at Decibel HERE.

Whereas other less skilled bands would turn the heavily intoned chanting in this track to doggerel, Rotting Christ evoke a Satanic and brazen confidence that translates across this serious ear scorcher for a song that underscores the corruption in this world. The heart bleeding sense of melody that shoots through the song as well is truly something to behold, for the brave nd rebellious out there.

SOLSTAFIR premiere new video for “Miðaftann” with NPR

Enigmatic Icelandic rock band SOLSTAFIR have seen the release of a new video for the track “Miðaftann”. The video, directed by Harri Haataja and Vesa Ranta, is streaming now at NPR.

Regarding the video, SOLSTAFIR guitarist/frontman Aðalbjörn Tryggvason comments, “The track is about wandering in darkness. Playing chess with Death, getting burned by salt, drowning in the ultimate wave of sin and returning back home by using moonlight as navigation.”

Video directors Harri Haataja and Vesa Ranta comment, “They told us a real-life story about a sailor who lost his crew at sea and was stranded to shore as the only survivor,” the directors write. “He proceeded to find his way to town and [along the way] he found a barrel filled with water. But the water was frozen, so he had to punch through the ice with his bare hands to fight the dehydration. Eventually, after a long journey, he found his way to town and survived.”

“Miðaftann” is taken from SOLSTAFIR’s critically acclaimed new album , ‘Otta’. The album, which has made Decibel Magazine’s top 40 albums of 2014, is streaming here, and is available now at the Season of Mist E-shop.

Venomous Concept stream new song “Rise”

I’ve always thought Venomous Concept was a cool…concept? No, they are actually cool in reality as well. And quite venomous.

Anything Kevin Sharp (ex-Brutal Truth) is part of is always completely unhinged. I maintain that he has the single fiercest howling bellow ape scream in metal history. Go listen to the Damaged album Purified In Pain he was on, fuck!!! While it is a drag Buzzo from Melvins hasn’t been in the group for awhile, VC still have Napalm Death alumni and more. They aint skimpin’ in the awesome department.

Anyhow, the band have silly ass new album art and  are streaming a new track from their forthcoming new album, ‘Kick Me Silly; VC 3’. The track, titled “Rise”, is streaming now with Revolver Magazine.

Regarding the new track, vocalist Kevin Sharp comments: “I like the contrast in guitars here. A decent mix of melodic bite…like if a shoegazer had more nut, less mustache.”

‘Kick Me Silly; VC3’ will be released by Season of Mist worldwide on January 8. The album is available for pre-order across several CD, ltd. LP and ltd. cassette formats at the Season of Mist E-Shop.

Emptiness sign with Season Of Mist

Emptiness have a new home with Season of Mist. I interviewed the experimental Belgian death metal band (and I do mean experimental) awhile ago for their last monster Nothing But The Whole and can’t wait to hear what scary music they make next. Like Hypothermia .Swallowed, or Harmonic Cross, the dudes in Emptiness seem more about creating a total mindfuck of a bleak vibe rather than adhering to expectation. I admire that greatly and kudos to Season Of Mist for supporting real art like this.

Regarding the signing, EMPTINESS comment: “We are currently working on the follow-up to ‘Nothing But The Whole’, for which our aim is to release it in late 2016 on our new label Season of Mist. We also would like to thank Dark Descent for supporting us in our decision and for helping to spread the seeds of the void. Important news will follow in due time.”

Kylesa stream “Exhausting Fire” with Noisey

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 7:05 AM (PST)

524feea6

Kylesa have a stream of their enjoyable new record Exhausting Fire over at
Noisey. The hard working band’s latest addition to their legacy, their seventh
LP in all, has some of the stomp they started back in the self titled days and
mastered on Static TensionsUltraviolet and Spiral Shadow‘s oddball charms
are alive and well as the band “throw caution to the wind” and marry blues
rock and sludge with a broader sense of melody than ever and a more and more
masterful sense of psychedelia.

Stream this baby HERE.

“Falling” can instantly be filed away alongside “Tired Climb” and the great and almost Soulfly-esque instrumental “Parent’s Song ” from the S/T as a new classic of layering, tone setting and feel. “Falling” is a dreamier yet just a pinch disconcerting lullabye that shows the post-punk influences and pop flirtation on the fringes of the band’s at times monumentally heavy wall of sound. This is the record that ought to get Ecstatic Vision, Crowbar and Blues Pills fans excited in equal measure, in a perfect world.

Cynic break up again

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, September 10, 2015 at 4:40 PM (PST)

maxresdefault

Prog metal heroes Cynic have released a break up statement, the second in their off and on history. Hopefully the future will iron things out as their return was a huge boon to the scene:

It is with a heavy heart that I post today’s CYNIC news. CYNIC is no longer an active band. Due to artistic and personal differences, the second chapter in the ‘BOOK OF CYNIC’ has come to an end.

I will say the last shows we played in JAPAN have left me with a positive charge, even though they were the last live performances with Paul, Sean Malone & I on the same stage. My longstanding creative partnership with Paul, which started when we were very young kids in south Florida, has simply endured so much friction that there is no way, from my perspective, that CYNIC can be salvaged, repaired or kept afloat by any means.

I profusely apologize to the fans who were not only expecting us in China & Taiwan (that was not our fault), but to the fans who were planning to see us in Europe next month. These things happen, unfortunately, to bands. There can be differing levels of conflicts and/or differences in opinions, musical directions, or perspectives. Sometimes these things are insurmountable, and no amount of time or effort can resolve them. This is the case with CYNIC.

This page will stay up, and of course there are our respective personal pages and websites that will continue to let everyone know what we’re doing individually.

I wish all of you love & peace.

-Sean

Gorguts-logo

Luc Lemay of greatest band in the world Gorguts has spilled to Frank from Metal Injection plans for a one song style album! As a big fan of some good examples of this idea from USX’s The Valley Path (which I often gush about) to Inter Arma’s “The Cavern” or Meshuggah’s classic “I”, this is pretty fuckin’ golden news. Goguts are so skilled and Lemay always so ambitious that this is sure to be an intense opus. Formidable minds in death metal shall never be thwarted!
