Hot News – Warbringer: Unveil “Worlds Torn Asunder” Album Artwork!

2011. Júl 19, 12:12 :

From years of relentless touring, WARBRINGER have become known as one of the hardest working bands in metal, as well as a ferocious live act-and they bring all of that raw aggression into the creation of their third album, "Worlds Torn Asunder", scheduled for a September 26th release in Europe (September 27th in the US).

"Worlds Torn Asunder" was produced and mixed by the renowned Steve Evetts (Suicide Silence, Dillinger Escape Plan), and features artwork by none less than Dan Seagrave, who designed WARBRINGER's previous album cover as well as such legendary acts as Entombed, Malevolent Creation, Suffocation, and Morbid Angel. In regards to their upcoming release, WARBRINGER vocalist John Kevill has this to say about the artwork:

“The concept behind “Worlds Torn Asunder” was the decline of our existing world at the hands of the human race. The artwork depicts the world literally being torn and we wanted to include the setting in the cosmos along with a darker 'higher' force lurking behind the shadows. We had worked with Dan Seagrave before on “Waking Into Nightmares” and were very comfortable with the way he expressed himself. He's been the artist for many bands we love and are inspired by."


Hot News – Unearth new album 'Darkness In The Light' hits album charts in the U.S., Canada and Germany!

2011. Júl 19, 11:54 :

em>Darkness In The Light, the latest studio album from Massachusetts metal heavyweights, UNEARTH, landed at#72 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, #14 on the Billboard Top Independent Album chart, and #7 on the Billboard Top Hard Music Albums chart. In addition, Darkness In The Light came in at #42 on Canada's Top 200 chart, #5 on the Hard chart and #44 on the Digital Albums chart.

Chart entries don't stop here though; Darkness In The Light hit the official German Album charts coming in at position #99 and also entered the Media Markt/Saturn charts in Germany coming in at position #68!

With Darkness In The Light, the quintet have delivered their most honest and powerful statement to date, setting a new standard when it comes to marrying precision brute force and exhilarating melody. commended the band in an advance review noting: "Tight riffing, varying from technical pedal-style patternsto twin-harmony Maiden/At The Gates worship, plus all the brutally chugging breakdowns, will surely serve to inspire many a karate kick in the pits come tour time. This is definitely music to move by…" Pit Riff said Darkness In The Light is, "powerful, has the right amount of grab to it, and definitely has the spit-filled rage lyrically that this kind of music once possessed before being softened for the mall kids," while Crave added: "Darkness In The Light is a first rate slice of metal that helps return the meat to the hollowed and empty husk of the metalcore genre."

Hot News – Athenian Symphonic Death Metallers Nightfall´s 'Astron Black' video clip has entered the editing process!

2011. Júl 19, 11:51 :

Athenian Symphonic Death Metallers NIGHTFALL have announced that the video clip for the title track off their latest album Astron Black has entered the editing process! The expected day of release is September 1st so better stay tuned!

Yet again the concept is full of symbolisms based on ancient Greek Gods and Deities among other holy and unholy creatures. Neither the director Achilleas Gatsopoulos nor the band wanted to repeat the schemes and techniques applied in the Ambassador of Mass video (link) that was purely based on shadow puppet theatre.

"There is no reason trying to repeat a successful thing unless you do it for the money" the team sarcastically states, and continues "this is not the issue here. The challenge of creation is priceless and we strictly do it for the art thing of it"

Hot News – French Black Metallers Glorior Belli: release cover art and track listing for‚The Great Southern Darkness'!

2011. Júl 19, 11:47 :

French Black Metallers GLORIOR BELLI have revealed the cover art and track listing for their new album The Great Southern Darkness to be released September, 23/26 via Metal Blade Records in Europe!

Comments the band: "The Great Southern Darkness has been recorded over a few months period and comprises of 11 tracks that magnify all the best elements of Glorior Belli in a twisted unique way again, a tremendous journey through dark deserts and evil swamps with Lucifer as personal guide. It's also dangerously violent and fast, yet at the same time really dark and have all the Americana/Stoner/Blues elements that I cherish. Though often warm and almost inviting, the allure of Glorior Belli's bidding is revealed by a vicious duplicity; you will find comfort here, but at an unspeakable toll. The production is clear yet just harsh enough to bring a warmth, fuzzy and completely unique sound you won't find in any other modern recordings. So load up your haversack and hit the dusty road!"
