Swiss avant-garde extreme metal band Triptykon are pleased to announce their highly anticipated release of Requiem (Live at Roadburn 2019) opus on May 15th, 2020 via Prowling Death Records / Century Media Records worldwide. The release will be available for pre-order in various formats starting March 20th, 2020.

Requiem (Live at Roadburn 2019) marks the bombastic conclusion of a project over 30 years in the making: The legendary Celtic Frost/Triptykon “Requiem” performed for the first time in its entirety and with full classical orchestration by the Dutch Metropole Orkest.

“We are truly, deeply delighted to be able to have been granted the opportunity to finish this unique project begun by Celtic Frost so many years ago, and to finally share the completed recording with the world,” Tom Gabriel Warrior states about the release. “This album is the result of two years of passionate work, and it marks the conclusion of a musical idea first considered over three decades ago. Moreover, this Requiem also represents drummer Hannes Grossmann’s first recording with Triptykon, and we are very proud to feature him in such an extraordinary context. It was an incredible honour to collaborate with the Metropole Orkest, conductor Jukka Iisakkila, guest vocalist Safa Heraghi, and the esteemed Roadburn festival. In fact, there couldn’t have been a better partner for the “Requiem” project than Roadburn. We are releasing this Requiem album in memoriam of our deeply missed friends and collaborators Martin Eric Ain and HR Giger.”

Requiem (46:00 min.) is composed of three chapters:
1. “Rex Irae” (06:34 min.) (First appeared on 1987’s “Into The Pandemonium” album by Celtic Frost)
2. “Grave Eternal” (32:28 min.) (Newly written middle part)
3. “Winter” (06:54 min.) (First appeared on 2006’s “Monotheist” album by Celtic Frost)

This unique and groundbreaking release is available in the following formats:

– Special Edition CD + DVD Mediabook
– Ltd. Gatefold LP + DVD (With LP-Booklet and 2x poster)
Unlimited black 180g. vinyl and selected ltd. coloured editions!
– Standard CD Jewelcase
– Ltd. Deluxe Artbook with coloured LP + CD + DVD + coloured 7Inch (With bonus track, score book of 60 pages, 3x poster, artprint and photocard)
– Digital album

Requiem’s main cover art (As can be seen above!) is titled “Blood Angel” and was created by Daniele Valeriani.

VËLLA release their debut album “COMA”

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Monday, March 9, 2020 at 12:56 PM (PST)

VËLLA from Portugal have released their debut alternative metal album Coma. Raising Legends Records put it out. The album was recorded at Raising Legends Lisboa studios with the band’s bass player, Caesar Craveiro, taking over the production, mixing and mastering tasks.

The group remind me of a sort of Korn/Chevelle blend of influences, from what I have heard so far. Check their song “Mannequin” below and see if it is for you.

The record features some special guests, such as the singer from the Portuguese groove metal band Equaleft, Miguel Inglês, who lends his voice to the song “The Promise”. Ana Marques gives her voice to the track “Tormento”, which also has the contribution of Ariana Pereira’s violin, and “I’ll Be The End”, the last song of the record, has the vocal collaboration of André Ferreira aka Wild Maui.

VËLLA’s guitar player Mário Rui comments: “This record illustrates the union of 5 musicians without fear of taking risks. We rely on the vision of each member to create the best music possible, without defining genres or barriers. In the end, the result was 12 distinct tracks, featuring heavy riffs, memorable choruses, melancholy environments and addictive melodies. We wrote a record that certainly won’t leave anyone indifferent.”

Oz Vilesov, the other guitar player, adds: “While we wrote the record we never had a pre-defined genre in mind. We chose to be guided by our own songs and this resulted in a record with multiple facets.”

Aborted announce EP ‘La Grande Mascarade’

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at 10:07 AM (PST)

Belgian death metal institution Aborted are back in 2020 with an Ep called La Grande Mascarade, three tracks of rebellious evil out April 17th. The EP will feature studio recordings of “Gloom and the Art of Tribulation”, “Serpent of Depravity”, and “Funereal Malediction”.

“Not only do we have this ultimate badass tour with Napalm Death, but since 2020 marks 25 years of us making noise, we figured we should take advantage of that fact and serve you guys up some tasty treats in the form of the EP ‘La Grande Mascarade’! If you want to hear us go beyond the limits of what we have done so far, stay tuned for the first single soon! Our US pre-order featuring the import digipak is already up at Indiemerch (https://www.indiemerch.com/aborted/item/82903) and limited to only 200 units! For the Europeans out there; Impericon will have the same pre-order in a few days,” states the band about the forthcoming release.

Grind legends and active political force in these horrific times Napalm Death are back with a digital EP and 7″ (love the brightly colored options), a very Napalm Death monickered Logic Ravaged By Brute Force release. Century Media put out this pit starter and it cheers me to see this in the same time period where I am gloomy from Barr destroying the justice apartment with his Baby Sinclair lookin’ ass face and the Senate’s own Palpatine , google eyed Mitch, shitting on the Constitution. It also super sucks what happened to Ke$ha this week with the defamation suit, so please stream and purchase her excellent High Road even if you are a grumbly metal fuck – she has supported metal before and is a rad lady who doesn’t deserve Dr. Puke’s bullshit. So yeah, we need to fight for logic and stop the brutes!

The release from the grind masters also kicks off their “Campaign For Musical Destruction” headline tour of Europe alongside EyeHateGod, Misery Index, Rotten Sound and Bat. That is a sick line-up! You lucky bastards over there better appreciate it and rage against some Brexit.

The EP includes a brand-new title-track as well as a freshly recorded cover version of “White Kross”, originally by Sonic Youth. The collectible Double-A-Side EP is also a first teaser for the band’s upcoming studio album, expected for release later in 2020. Sonic Youth covered by Napalm Death? I am losing my mind. How cool!

“In keeping with NAPALM DEATH custom, we had a vast swathe of new songs with many different flavors,” states NAPALM DEATH’s frontman Mark “Barney” Greenway about the EP: “So then naturally we moved into single territory and opted for ‘Logic Ravaged By Brute Force’. It’s the coldness and desperation of the guitar chords and voice that swung it. And then, seeing as Sonic Youth mash chords like few others, this cover of ‘White Kross’ just seemed to lift itself beyond the constraints of cover – or filler – song into a bit of a rumbling wall-of-sound epic”.

Hear it on Spotify HERE.

NAPALM DEATH’s Logic Ravaged By Brute Force 7″ EP is issued in the following versions:
Black vinyl – Unlimited
Blue vinyl – 200x copies via CM Distro Europe – Sold out!
Light Green vinyl – 100x copies via CM Webshop Europe – Sold out!
Neon Yellow vinyl – 100x copies via CM Webshop USA (Out February 28th!) – Sold out!
Orange vinyl – 600x – Available exclusively from the band on the road!

Krvsade streaming new EP ‘Judgement Day’

Posted by longhairedpoet on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at 10:54 AM (PST)

Charlotte, NC death thrashers Krvsade are streaming their new EP Judgement Day, which comes out on January 31!

Head over to Ghost Cult Mag to stream it now!

Krvsade has come a long way from their 2017 debut EP Militum Infernum and they are excited to show off this stark contrast to the previous material to fans. Comparing the new release to their previous one, vocalist/guitarist Andre Evans says:

“This EP is definitely a change compared to ‘Militum Infernum’. Whereas Militum was more raw and pure in your face, ‘Judgement Day’ has some twists and turns. The playing is better and I think fans will appreciate a band that’s firing on all cylinders and not holding anything back. It’s a good example of the rebirth of this band. Our sound evolving from the rawness it previously was. More mature and progressive. It’s a fun ride from start to finish.” 

For fans of old school Sepultura, Death, Morbid Angel, Vader, Slayer, Kreator

Montecharge streaming ‘Demons Or Someone Else’

Posted by longhairedpoet on Sunday, December 29, 2019 at 12:00 PM (PST)

Swiss metallers Montecharge are streaming their first full-length album Demons Or Someone Else now over at their Bandcamp.

Montecharge is ffo: Cortez, Converge, Knut, Old Man Gloom, Gorguts

Montecharge emerged in 2007 as a reunion between two members of Amok, a defunct grind/death outfit from Geneva, Switzerland. They rapidly wrote their first tracks with the intent to deliver aggressive music while aiming for a form of subtlety.

As a side-project, the band initially remained a guitar/drum duo. They self-produced a 5-track EP in 2012, which was released as a 10’’ vinyl limited to 100 copies.In 2013, Montecharge expanded to include a third member in order to reinforce its experimental inclinations with synthesizers, Theremin and various noise machines.

The trio then recorded three tracks in studio to answer the call of a Swedish multi-band project named Elemental Nightmares. One track was published on the compilation and two were released on a 7’’ with Hummus Records. After a second hiatus due to implications in other projects the band regrouped in 2016 with renewed strength to write their first album and search for a vocalist.

Both of which came to fruition early 2017: Montecharge took on the studio as a quartet tor ecord an album with Thierry Van Osselt (of Knut fame) in Geneva.

Paladin to release Nevermore covers EP featuring Travis Smith art

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Thursday, December 5, 2019 at 3:41 PM (PST)

Very, very cool news today as we learn that one of the brightest new stars in metal Paladin are releasing a covers EP dedicated to the legends Nevermore this month! Prosthetic is releasing the EP digitally on December 13th, 2019 to end the year on a soaring and intense note.  The cover art for the Anamnesis EP has been created by Travis Smith, a longtime artistic collaborator of both Nevermore and Warrel Dane.

Pre-save the Anamnesis EP at Spotify HERE. 

Of the choice of songs on the EP, PALADIN guitarist/vocalist, Taylor Washington comments:

“River Dragon was an obvious choice since it’s probably their most recognizable song. I wanted to do something from This Godless Endeavor since it’s still my favorite Nevermore album, and Final Product was kind of the default choice since it doesn’t have any super ridiculous hard parts in it. We also wanted to do an older song, one that wasn’t played on a 7 string. The name is a mouthful, but I’ve always been partial to 42147 because it’s filled with great riffs and the subject matter is interesting.”

A chance meeting with Nevermore drummer, Van Williams, gave PALADIN the impetus to pursue the idea of recording the songs, which will be released on 13 December – the anniversary of Dane’s death. The band’s connection to Nevermore goes back several years as Taylor explains:

“I remember picking up This Godless Endeavor from a liquidation sale at a music store back in high school. From the first listen it immediately resonated with me and I knew it would become one of my favorite albums and Nevermore one of my favorite bands. When Prosthetic proposed the idea of doing a Nevermore tribute EP to commemorate Warrel Dane’s death, I honestly hesitated. Jeff Loomis is an absolute monster on guitar and Warrel had one of the most distinct and dynamic voices to grace the metal world. The task of having to do justice to those two and Nevermore as a whole was a daunting one, but I couldn’t say no. I decided to sing the songs the way I would rather than try to sound like Warrel since that would feel disingenuous to me.”
