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.

Song Of The Week: Mortiis “The Shining Lamp Of God”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, January 8, 2016 at 11:04 AM (PST)

mortiisband2015_638

This new Mortiis track and spooky video (that looks like someone let Floria Sigismundi loose in Dr. Jeckyl’s lab) rocked us this week. It’s a track that could’ve fit well in mid-90’s industrial DJ sets alongside Skrew, 1000 Homo DJs or Pigface.

It also could just as easily appeal to Cradle Of Filth fans for attitude and glammed out darkness dalliance. I for one am all over this track.

Ministry-esque big guitar industrial metal with a dancing. blacker heart. Crank it and spank it.

“I know what you are thinking. Doesn’t the Metal Riot staff ever rest? Shouldn’t they be more hungover and not posting today? Well, I’m sure some of us are (probably Nich Madl). I haven’t had a drink in about three years. And while year end lists are freshly posted, confetti and streamers and smashed champagne glasses are still being swept up, Motley took their bow and the memory of Lemmy’s death is still ringing in our ears, let’s remember that this New Year we can make metal and hard rock as meaningful and powerful as it has ever been. We have new releases to look forward to from Lycus, Primal Fear, Cauldron’s new album, Peace Killers and more. Biohazard’s Mata Laeao turns twenty! AND Metallica’s Black Album turns fucking twentyfive this year! It’s a controversial yet landmark record that was a more unified representation of all the facets their career has come to include under the band’s umbrella of styles than any other release (though my favorite era and many others is the earlier stuff). BUT I can still remember exactly where I was when the “Enter Sandman” video came out. The thumping drums and sense of anticipation. Let’s treat this year the same way. Let’s aim big but stay strong.” – Morgan Ywain Evans

“Short, sweet and to the point: “2015 was such a fuckin’ pisser that I could not be more ready for 2016, which is going to fucking rock. We’ve got a lot of great stuff planned. Some killer albums are slated to come out this year and we can’t wait to cover them and talk about them. In addition to the straight news, we’re going to rock some editorials, including looking back at some of the amazing moments in metal that have brought us here today, so get fucking ready!” – Longhairedpoet/Jessica Fisher

“I’m looking forward to new music, seeing the scene grow closer and prosper , and I’m looking forward to photographing way more shows!” – Crashqueen/June Aispuro

Ihsahn announces 6th solo album, lyric video

Posted by Metal Riot on Friday, December 18, 2015 at 12:14 PM (PST)

Ihsahn_Arktis

Candlelight Records proudly announces March 4 as the global release date for the sixth solo album from Ihsahn titled Arktis.  The album will be available in standard cd, deluxe cd (featuring additional exclusive content), and vinyl formats.  The album’s first single, “Mass Darkness,” is released today via Itunes and Amazon.  It is available for streaming now via Spotify.  Decibel Magazine exclusively presents the Michael Dickinson (Orange Goblin, Gallows) created lyric video for the song available for viewing here.

Arktis was recorded at Ihsahn’s studio in Notodden, Norway and was mixed in Sweden by Jens Bogren (Opeth, Katatonia).  The album features ten songs and is the longest and most spirited of Ihsahn’s solo recordings.  It features guest appearances from Einar Solberg (Leprous), Matt Heafy (Trivium), Jorgen Munkeby (Shining), Tobias Ornes Andersen (Shining, ex-Leprous), and renowned Norwegian author Hans Herbjornsrud.  Graphic elements for Arktis once again have been provided by award-winning Spanish designer Ritxi Ostariz.

Few artists in modern heavy music have created such an extraordinary and unique body of work as Ihsahn.  Having refined and redefined black metal with the now legendary Emperor, Ihsahn is Norway’s foremost musical extremist.  He has spent the last decade establishing himself as a fearless and wildly idiosyncratic solo artist and even by his own remarkable standards, Arktis is a bold and mind-blowing step into the unknown.  Ihsahn comments, “my focus for this album was to write within more traditional song structures and still give each song a strong individual identity, be that through a re-occurring melody, a chorus, sound design or the good, old guitar riff.  I also wanted to explore this on the production side, blending organic rock sounds with more modern expressions.”

Baroness streaming “Purple” in entirety

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, December 17, 2015 at 9:40 AM (PST)

Baroness_PURPLE_ABXN001_Cover_1600_RGB-LOW

 

Baroness are streaming hotly awaited album Purple in full. The record is a bit heavier than Yellow and Green were but retain a lot of the cool dynamics that made those records an evolution. While Blue Record is still my favorite of their colorful career, this album is brilliant and has some seriously great tunes like sludgy and precision drumming opener “Morningstar” (sludgier than most recent Mastodon), the proggy “Kerosene”, hooky “Shock Me” and the sing a long/bad ass “Chlorine & Wine”. They have more than earned their staying power. One of the best bands in the rock world.

“While we realize the accident is obviously of interest, we have gone over that particular story’s details at length over the past few years,” Baizley says. “We feel that this album not only addresses but puts a punctuation mark on that story. Baroness existed before the accident and will continue to exist, and we’d rather talk about what we’ve created with Purple than let one side-story overtake or define who we are as a band.”
