A MORBID ANGEL fan made a video for COMBICHRIST’s remix of the “Destructos Vs the Earth” track, originally available on the “Nevermore” single. Even though this is nothing official, the video caught the band’s attention and is definitely worth checking out. You can watch it here.
All formats of “Illud Divinum Insanus”, including the foldout wooden triptych box and the “Nevermore” 7″ single are available on Season of Mist’s e-shop. The digital version can be purchased on iTunes or Amazon
GHOST BRIGADE’s forthcoming album is entitled “Until Fear No Longer Defines Us” and will hit the stores on August 19th (August 23rd in North America). Here are the cover artwork and tracklist of the Finns’ third gem.
The band is currently collaborating with French artist Fursy Teyssier on a video for the song “Clawmaster”. “I remember Ghost Brigade contacting me two years ago, asking for a music video”, Fursy states. “Unfortunately I wasn’t able to do it so we forgot the idea. Now, this music video is back on the table, and I’m very very excited to start the production. I have experience in short films, but I never did any music video, so that will be a pretty new and unknown experience to me, and I’m extremely glad that it’ll be together with Ghost Brigade. I loved their “Isolation Songs” album, and now I’m listening to “Until Fear No Longer Defines Us” everyday. Great album, and I’m very proud they trust in my work… Those 2 months producing a 6:30 min music video will be intense to me…”
“Until Fear No Longer Defines Us” will be released as a CD digipak limited to the first pressing, a double gatefold coloured vinyl with digital download card, and a collector’s box with CD Digipak, regular or unisex t-shirt, leather bracelet, postcard hand-signed by all band members and metal button badges. All of the above is available for pre-order on Season of Mist’s e-shop!

As previously announced, MINUSHUMAN’s new album is entitled “Bloodthrone” and has been scheduled for an August 19th release (August 23rd in North America). Download the opening track “The Architect” for free here!
Here are the cover artwork and the tracklisting of “Bloodthrone”:
The artwork was designed by lead guitarist and main songwriter Thomas Billerey. The artist comments: “I wanted to create an evocative artwork, that everybody could fathom out their own way, even if my prime intention quite clearly shows through the lyrics and atmospheres of the tunes. So the cover depicts a throne covered in blood, abandoned, lost in a deserted immensity, where earth and sea merge. Here could sit the Man reigning absolutely through blood over the world, sacrificing the latter to his madness.”
“Bloodthrone” is available for pre-order on Season of Mist’s e-shop, as a digipak edition limited to the first pressing.
