Aborym announce new album ‘Hostile’ for 2020

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, November 25, 2019 at 6:36 AM (PST)


Hot on the heels of their 25 Anniversary Celebration through the release of the trilogy Something for Nobody (3 LPs, released via Dead Seed Production in the between of 2017 and 2019) ABORYM are about to enter the most prolific period within their extensive career with the highly anticipated brand new album HOSTILE due for international release on 2020 by DEAD SEED PRODUCTIONS.

Their 8th studio album is titled HOSTILE and ABORYM are currently recording it at NGM studios and Synthesis Studios with the sound engineer Andrea Corvo.

The new album will be mixed in Rome and Bangkok by the legendary producer Keith Hillebrandt, sound-designer, remixer and programmer from San Francisco (now Bangkok based) who has worked within the music software business and with/for various artists such as Stevie Wonder, Consolidated and David Bowie. He has also manipulated sound in many musical outfits including Nine Inch Nails, Blast Conservatory, Cleopatra System and Full Court Press (a band he was in), as well as working in Naut Humon’s Sound Traffic Control. Keith Hillebrandt has also released four solo albums and an EP. On David Bowie’s I’m Afraid Of Americans, Hillebrandt is listed as a full member of NIN along with Dave Ogilvie, Danny Lohner and Charlie Clouser.

The mastering will be entrusted to the Aborym long time associate Marc Urselli, 5-time Grammy Award nominated, 3-time Grammy Award winning engineer, producer, mixer, sound designer. Marc Urselli works with artists from around the world such as U2, Foo Fighters, Sting, Lou Reed, Keith Richards, Nick Cave, Børns, Mike Patton, John Zorn, Elton John […]

“It’s taken us a while,” – says lead singer and mastermind Fabrizio Giannese aka Fabban – “but over the last couple of years I put together a great team of individuals to work with, and that, as well as a revitalized and energetic new commitment has triggered an effect that has dramatically overhauled ABORYM. Hostile is testament to that. It’s rude, it’s ballsy and at the same time it’s sensitive and extremely intimate”

“It was a great pleasure making the new album,” concludes Giannese. “Sometimes you hit a period where everything just fits together perfectly and turns out exactly as you hoped it would. Hostile reflects that very sentiment, and much more.”

CARACH ANGREN from are currently in the studio recording the follow up to the exquisitely titled Dance and Laugh Amongst The Rotten release. This new effort will be the 6th horror infused black metal theatrical endeavor from the twisted act of geniuses from Netherlands.

The band comment: “After many incredible tours meeting our dedicated fans around the globe, we finally return to the studio! Over the past two years a lot of creativity and effort has already flown into preparing our sixth monstrous full length album. For recording drums, bass and guitars we return to familiar grounds, working with the talented Patrick Damiani at his Tidal Wave Studio in Germany while vocals and orchestral arrangements are being prepared in our own crypt. For the mix of the album we welcome a new force, namely Robert Carranza (MARILYN MANSON), who’s work up until now has impressed us very much. Get ready for another chapter of horror!”

More details as we get them. In the meantime…

Sergio Albert

Spanish prog metallers Obsidian Kingdom have entered the studio to begin work on their newest album. This album will be the band’s third full-length.

The experimental Barcelonian outfit will spend the next month at Ax Studio in their hometown (the same place where their debut “Mantiis” was recorded).

The band comment: “Once again, we’re off to the studio in excitement and terror… Even though we’ve been working on these songs for two years now, they keep changing on us as if they were alive. So wish us luck as we approach the final stage of wrestling this beast, and soon we’ll bring you trumpets of angels and trombones from Hell!”

If you haven’t already, check out the video for the band’s song “The Polyarnik,” taken off their sophomore effort A Year With No Summer, here.

October Tide to start work on new record

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 at 4:57 PM (PST)

OCTOBER TIDE‘s Fredrik Norrman (ex-Katatonia), co-founder and guitarist of the Swedish, melodic death metal group, reports that the band has been writing songs for their sixth studio album, follow-up to “Winged Waltz” from 2016, and has booked a studio for the end of November, to start the recording process.

Norrman commented: “We haven’t made much noise about this so far, but we have written a bunch of songs lately. In fact, we have almost a whole album more or less finished”.

The plans are to have the album – whose mixing and mastering duties will be handeled by Karl Daniel Liden (Bloodbath, Katatonia, Cult Of Luna) – completed by late January, and released on Agonia Records in spring 2019.

OCTOBER TIDE‘s last live appearance took place in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) on October 26th. Shortly before the recording sessions, the band will travel south to Bucharest (Romania), where they’ll perform at the Metal Gates Festival with Rotting Christ, Shining and Draconian. Whilst recording the album, they’ll play a show at December Doom Festival in Vantaa (Finland), with plans to do a special  setlist from their debut release,“Rain Without End”.

Formed in 1995 by Katatonia members, Jonas Renkse and Fred Norrman, OCTOBER TIDE spawned two, now-cult releases, “Rain Without End” (1997) and “Grey Dawn” (1999), before going on hiatus for over eleven years. Reunited in 2009, the Swedes released three studio albums: “A Thin Shell” (2010), “Tunnel Of No Light” (2013) and “Winged Waltz” (2016), all of which featured exceptional guitar work, on top of the band’s emotional touch on death metal.

Upcoming shows:
2018-11-17: Bucharest @ Metal Gates Festival, ROM
2018-12-01: Vantaa @ December Doom Festival, FIN
2018-12-07: Göteborg @ Sticky Fingers, SWE

Killswitch sign to Metal Blade/Sony, tour with Iron Maiden

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, June 4, 2018 at 5:58 PM (PST)

Big news today as Metal Blade Records is proud to welcome Killswitch Engage to their roster! Partnering with Sony Music Entertainment outside of North America, the band will be releasing their upcoming album in 2019 worldwide. I love all their records but consistently rock Disarm The Descent and As Daylight Dies in my car the most often these days. Whatever they do though always has the drive, passion and depth that fans know and love. And of course…RIIIIFFFS!

Man, with this in the works and the new effort from Exmortus coming out this week, we are having a jubilantly thrash-corian week, huh? Yes, I just wrote that. I will hang my head in shame now…or, bang it?

Metal Blade’s CEO/founder Brian Slagel comments: “I have been a huge fan and friend of Killswitch for a long time, so it is truly an honor to be able to work with them. So happy to welcome them to the Metal Blade family.” 

Jesse Leach (vocals): “I’m beyond stoked to sign with the legendary Metal Blade Records and Columbia/Sony Music. It’s clear they truly understand and believe in what we do as a band, and we’re psyched to have them on our side. It’s an exciting new chapter for KSE and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.” 

Adam Dutkiewicz (guitar): “I’m very excited to say that Killswitch Engage will be joining forces with Metal Blade Records and Columbia/Sony Music! Super stoked to join the ranks with a long list of many epic metal acts, as well as a team of excellent human beings who truly have a genuine love for metal music. Here’s to an awesome future with awesome labels!” 

Benjamin Voss, Senior A&R Manager Columbia/Sony Music Germany: “I am very happy and proud to work with such an amazing band like Killswitch Engage in the future. We are absolutely excited about releasing their new album on Sony Music outside North America.” 

Currently finishing work on their upcoming album, Killswitch Engage have taken a break from recording to embark on a summer European tour with Iron Maiden. The trek will also see the band appear at various premier festivals (Sweden Rock, Graspop Metal Meeting, Hellfest, etc.), along with a few special headlining shows. Then in the fall, the band will be touring across Australia with Parkway Drive. See below for all dates!

Heavy metal doom bringers CASTLE have announced a 12 date headlining trek across the US including a performance at this year’s Maryland Doom Fest in Frederick, MD on June 23.

Scheduled to begin recording over the next month in Portland, OR with producer Billy Anderson (Sleep, Neurosis, Eyehategod), CASTLE‘s fifth full length is set for a September release.

Additionally, the band have announced several European shows upcoming in October and November, including a string of dates in Germany with The Skull as well as festival appearances at The Malta Doom Fest (Oct 19), Doom Over Vienna (Nov 10) and Dutch Doom Days (Nov 24). Expect more European dates to follow.

Karyn Crisis’ Gospel Of The Witches crowdfunding new album

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 5:58 PM (PST)

The art and music of Karyn Crisis has been more influential to me than most other performers by a long shot. I have been a fan of Karyn’s unique blend of soul dredging in pursuit of finding the light out of the darkness for several decades now. It pleases me greatly to tell our readers that Gospel Of The Witches, Karyn’s most recent musical act, is working on a second record. But they need our help, fam!

The new record will be entitled Covenant.

Says Karyn, “It’s been a long journey since we last connected during the release of
Salem’s Wounds. While our debut began as a crowdfunded album, and was successfully released with Century Media acting as the last campaign funder, the band is now label-less. Century Media was bought out by Sony and Sony dropped GOTW (Editor’s Note: Sony, you morons). We will fund this album ourselves, bit by bit. We will record drums in the spring and continue from there.”


Once again, Karyn will have handmade collectible items accompanying the release of Covenant.
Keep an eye on the band’s facebook page, website, and instagram for updates: facebook.com/gospelofthewitches, @gospelofthewitches, gospelofthewitches.com vimeo.com/258785446

Karyn Crisis' GOSPEL OF THE WITCHES is now preparing their new album, "COVENANT" for studio. More details soon! vimeo.com/258785446

Gruesome complete new record, Summer European tour announced

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at 2:53 PM (PST)

Cool death metal news today as Gruesome have completed the follow up to Savage Land. Yes, the other releases from them were EPs. Their latest studio offering, titled Twisted Prayers, was recorded with producer Jarrett Pritchard (Exhumed, 1349, Goatwhore, Wolvhammer) at New Constellation Studios in Orlando, Florida. Twisted Prayers follows Death’s paradigm shift during the Spiritual Healing era, incorporating more cerebral, melodic instrumentation with elements of thrash and thought-provoking, socially conscious lyrics. The record once again features artwork from the legendary Ed Repka (Death, Megadeth, Venom) and is expected to be released this summer via Relapse Records. Stay tuned for more info to be announced in the coming weeks.

Love this project, just a big fat Death appreciation party in good fun. You know each time Gruesome return that it will be a very metal time. The band also have a slew of Euro tour dates you can check out BELOW.

Omnium Gatherum working on new album, issue update

Posted by Metal Riot on Friday, March 2, 2018 at 1:58 PM (PST)

OMNIUM GATHERUM are currently working on their highly anticipated new album, which will be released in late summer 2018! Check out the below update from guitarist Markus Vanhala:

“Greetings from the studio vaults! We’re busy at forging the new OMNIUM GATHERUM album during the Finnish winter madness season – hopes are high here, even though the outside temperature isn’t. A lot of special good stuff is going on, and new adventures are coming up for camp OG. We’re just in the middle of recording guitar and synth stuff for the next album, and all I can say is that this is gonna be  one bad-ass album. Again we trust our good ol’ tour de force of Teemu Aalto doing recording and producing, and Dan Swanö who will fix it in the mix and master the universe. Everything’s been going really well and easily so far with producing this successor for the successful ‘Grey Heavens’, and I’ll promise this album’s gonna beat the previous one for real! The league of angry old men are here for your enjoyment! Already at this early stage it seems like this is going to be OG’s epic guitar heroism magnum opus… Maybe, haha… Me and Joonas have found some great spirit of the lost shred guys. All hail the almighty guitar and heavy metal!”

Following the recording session, OMNIUM GATHERUM will escape from the studio to get back on the road once again. Vanhala adds, “We enjoyed the Finnish-Icelandese rivalry of the ‘Arctic Circle Alliance’ European tour last year with Skalmöld and Stam1na so much that we wanted to do a European round 2. This time we’ll go to the islands of United Kingdom and Ireland, and also Scandinavia including Denmark, Sweden and Norway.” 

The band will also be seen on North American soil in the Fall alongside Amorphis, Dark Tranquility and Moonspell. Full dates are as listed below.

My favorite hard rock band Clutch, indeed the truest road tested road doggin’ purveyors of rabble rousing rock n roll in recent modernity, have done and entered the studio to begin tracking a new album and follow-up to 2015’s gosh darn straight up ear-aphrodisiac Psychic Warfare. Recording is currently taking place at Sputnik Sound in Nashville, TN with producer and engineer Vance Powell (The White Stripes, Red Fang) at the helm.

The greatest band on this scorched rock are also playing the Bud Light sponsored Rocklahoma in May alongside other greats like Halestorm, A Perfect Circle, Godsmack, New Years Day and Diamond Head (to name a few). Shit yeah to all that.

A mid 2018 release of the title TBA Clutch record (in progress) via Weathermaker Music is expected.

New York City-area powerdementia faction GRIDFAILURE has completed a new video for “Sew Nothing, Reap Nothingness,” while many other new recordings and projects are nearing completion for release in 2018.

“Sew Nothing, Reap Nothingness” is found on GRIDFAILURE’s I Shall Not Survive Another Winter, which was independently released on the Autumnal Equinox. Each song on I Shall Not Survive Another Winter grows longer than the one preceding it, the record exploring a vision of Post-Sixth Mass-Extinction Skullduggery which is the concept of the upcoming Teeth Collection and Drought Stick albums, portraying a grim vision of humanity’s future. A nearby reality where those who have survived mankind’s override by artificial intelligence, the ecological rebellion of our planet, and thermonuclear warfare amidst our own kind strive to rebuild society, and are continually thwarted.

See GRIDFAILURE’s “Sew Nothing, Reap Nothingness” RIGHT HERE.

Find I Shall Not Survive Another Winter as well as the Halloween-released When The Lights Go Out Vol. I – which is still available for free download – at GRIDFAILURE’s Bandcamp at THIS LOCATION.

With multiple new full-length titles, EPs, videos, and other projects in the works, GRIDAILURE is also heavily immersed in fully cooperative albums with a wide array of artists. The second collaborative album with Brooklyn experimentalist MEGALOPHOBE and a collaborative EP with upstate New York anti-folk/punk act WALKING BOMBS are both halfway completed. A collaborative EP with FYRHTU, a new project formed by Leila Abdul-Rauf (Vastum, Ionophore, Cardinal Wyrm) and Nathan A. Verrill (Cardinal Wyrm), is well underway, and a fully audio/visual collaborative release with PORNOHELMUT – the side project of Neil Barrett of Austin-based experimental/grind metal act Blk Ops and Novel Concept TV – is currently under construction.
