BRING ME THE HORIZON Releases 'Wonderful Life' Single Feat. DANI FILTH

U.K. rockers BRING ME THE HORIZON have just released a single titled "Wonderful Life" from their highly anticipated album "Amo", which is due on January 25 via Columbia Records. The track, featuring CRADLE OF FILTH frontman Dani Filth, received its first play on Daniel P. Carter's BBC Radio 1 show.

Fans who pre-order the album digitally will receive instant downloads of "Wonderful Life" and previously released track "Mantra".

The album tracklisting was also exclusively revealed, along with other special guests on the record, which include Grimes and Rahzel.


The single comes hot on the tail of the release of "Mantra", which sat on Radio 1's playlist for eight weeks and has been streamed over 34 million times since its arrival in August.


b>BRING ME THE HORIZON frontman Oli Sykes says of the new track: "The lyrics for 'Wonderful Life' were done freestyle in the studio. It's stream of consciousness-type stuff about getting old and out of touch, being off tour and loving the mundane things in life, I guess because it's so novel when your life is mainly spent on the road. Things like weekly shops and mowing your lawn are quite nice. People who spend most of their lives away from home can surely relate. I guess on top of that there's this inner crisis I have of being a boring person but still having a desire to go wild inside me every now and again… But, yeah, all in all, it's mostly word vomit... but also some of my favorite lyrics. The beginning is 100 percent legit and the irony was just too good, so we left it like that."


BRING ME THE HORIZON's North American 16-city "First Love" tour will kick off January 23 and will include stops at The Forum in Los Angeles and Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, where a second show was just added due to overwhelming demand.


"Amo" track listing:

01. I Apologise If You Feel Something

02. Mantra

03. Nihilist Blues (feat. Grimes)

04. In The Dark

05. Wonderful Life (feat. Dani Filth)

06. Ouch

07. Medicine

08. Sugar Honey Ice & Tea

09. Why You Gotta Kick Me When I'm Down?

10. Fresh Bruises

11. Mother Tongue

12. Heavy Metal (feat. Rahzel)

13. I Don't Know What To Say

NOTHGARD – “Fall Of An Empire” Single Streaming

Epic melodic death metallers, Nothgard, have released third single and video for "Fall Of An Empire" from their upcoming new album, Malady X, out on October 26th. 

Bandleader Dom R. Crey about “Fall Of An Empire”: "Finally the time has come and we can share the third single with you. ‘Fall of an Empire' was a real challenge for us, but it was worth it. We flew specially to Rome and shot there in an absolutely brilliant location, a sulfur desert, and simply wanted to breathe life into the intention of the lyrics and to do justice to them. ‚Fall of an Empire' is symbolic of many things that concern us. Packed in a thriller-like story with great actors, a video you should not miss out on!"

The album is available for pre-order in the following formats:

- ltd. 1st ed. Digipak-CD
- box set (EU exclusive - limited to 300 copies)

- red/black marbled vinyl (EMP exclusive - limited to 120 copies)

Nothgard recorded Malady X at Def-Creation and & Southern Deathcult studios and called the renowned Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy, Kreator, Opeth, etc.) for mastering duties. The result is an album full of epic melodic death metal anthems.

HAKEN Streaming New Single “A Cell Divides”

Haken, one of progressive music’s most exciting bands, are set to release their much-anticipated fifth studio album titled Vector, in a week’s time on October 26th. The album was produced by the band themselves, and recorded & mixed by Adam “Nolly” Getgood (Periphery, Devin Townsend Project), with the artwork once again being handled by Blacklake.

Today the band have released a video for “A Cell Divides”, the third track taken from the album.

The band comments: "Spawned from some hotel room writing sessions last year, Vector's album closer was a fresh approach to concise song writing, for which we are not typically known. While the lyrics in ‘A Cell Divides’ unlock more clues to the narrative of Vector, the video, filmed mostly in slow motion, contradicts the frantic pace of the song and delves into the beauty of flawed and warped imagery."

The album will be available as limited edition 2CD Digipak (including instrumental versions), gatefold vinyl 2LP + CD, & as digital download.

Tracklisting:

"Clear"
"The Good Doctor"
"Puzzle Box"
"Veil"
"Nil By Mouth"

EINHERJER: 'Mine Våpen Mine Ord' Video Released

"Mine Våpen Mine Ord", the new video from Viking metal veterans EINHERJER, can be seen below. The tack is taken from the band's ninth full-length album, titled "Norrøne Spor", which will be released on November 9.

EINHERJER has carried out its vision for more than two decades. The band was there when Norwegian extreme metal grew forth and took shape as an enormous cultural export.

EINHERJER's Norse heritage is a phenomenon that reaches far beyond what one can hear alone. It is an amalgamation of the mystique and sagas of old, of songs and poems, of woodcutting and sword grinding and the vikings merciless way of life. It's a cultural patchwork that fills the consciousness with the brutal majesty of the Nordic nature, the elemental strain, of mighty longships plowing the black seas to reach unknown shores. The wisdom of the gods and their Valhalla. Of cultural encounters and trade. Of violence and brutality. Of tough men in a tough time. Their hometown Haugesund also rings with historic sound, and from their own shores on the west coast of Norway the influence of the Vikings stretched towards the sea and the world beyond. The adventurers, pioneers, poets and craftsmen have inspired EINHERJER to go their own way. The Vikings' courage and boldness have inspired us to never compromise EINHERJER's vision, a vision that is a unique, self-made, original and modern interpretation of our mighty Nordic heritage.

EINHERJER vocalist and bassist Frode Glesnes commented: "Classic EINHERJER meets the future and the past. No, we have not returned to our roots. That's a way overused cliché and it always calls for bullshit. We have simply written and arranged more stuff together.

On our last few albums we have written songs separately; this time we've looked at what happens when Gerhard and me are in a room together.

"We still have a firm grip on what EINHERJER is all about. That will never change.

"Here is 10 new songs that any heathen metalhead should be able to love and appreciate. No bullshit, just 10 great metal songs."

Track listing:

01. The Spirit OF A Thousand Years

02. Mine Våpen Mine Ord

03. Fra Konge Te Narr

04. Kill The Flame

05. Mot Vest

06. Spre Vingene

07. The Blood Song

08. Døden Tar Ingen Fangar

09. Tapt Uskyld

10. Av Djupare Røtter

EINHERJER is:

Frode Glesnes - guitar, bass, vocals

Gerhard Storesund - drums, samples

Aksel Herløe - guitar, backing vocals

Ole Sønstabø - lead guitar

GOROD: 'Bekhten's Curse' Video Released

"Bekhten's Curse", the new video from French technical metallers GOROD, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's latest album, "Aethra", which was released today (Friday, October 19) via Overpowered Records. The clip was produced by Disclosure Productions.


Vocalist Julien Deyres says: "Out of all of the songs on the album, these lyrics required the most research. I am not at all a specialist in Egyptian antiquity, but in doing my research on lunar deities, I discovered this extraordinary story about a so-called miraculous healing of Ramesses II's sister-in-law. This legend is engraved on a stela that is currently in the Louvre Museum and is a proven historical fake. In this song, I am playing the role of a Bekhten's city survivor, which was completely destroyed to restore a form of eventual reality... because way too often, popular legends such as this one were created to hide misdeeds by those who have the power and wish to be considered as heroes."


The 10th release from GOROD was produced and recorded by GOROD guitarist/mastermind Mathieu Pascal in his own Bud Studio, mixed at Dugout Studio by Daniel Bergstrand (MESHUGGAH, BEHEMOTH, DECAPITATED, IN FLAMES) and mastered by Lawrence Mackrory at Obey Mastering (DECAPITATED, NIGHTRAGE).


In comparison to GOROD's previous albums, the band sees "Aethra" as a profound progression in terms of production, songwriting and arrangements. Pascal says: "We decided that I would be in charge only for the recording in my studio, and chose Daniel Bergstrand for the mixing and mastering, as we love his work for decades. It puts some pressure on me, firstly because I'm used to working alone with the production of GOROD albums. The tracks should be clear and perfect enough to be easily understood and included into the mix the way I imagined. But also, because I still feel like a newbie compared to Bergstrand and I just didn't want to look like an amateur job! Bergstrand and McCrory did an awesome job on this album, the sound is powerful but still natural and balanced."


b>"Aethra" track listing:

01. Wolfsmond

02. Bekhten's Curse

03. Aethra

04. The Sentry

05. Hina

06. And The Moon Turned Black

07. Chandra And The Maiden

08. Goddess Of Dirt

09. Inexorable

10. A Light Unseen


With "Aethra", GOROD transports the listener to a tragic and melancholic universe — a completely new level of darkness — while preserving what GOROD considers their tried and true core sound: incomparable groove, remarkable dexterity, and relentless technicality. But all the while, the band never sacrifices earworm hooks and unforgettable riffage.


Deyres explains the concept behind "Aethra": "The moon: a star, an allegory, a universal symbol that concerns all peoples and eras... this is the central theme of the lyrical concept of this album which is divided into ten texts that follow a form of parity in terms of genres: four titles are devoted to female lunar deities, four to male deities. The remaining two are respectively dealing with the universal symbolism of the owl and the star itself.


"The concept is basically a study of different cults associated with the moon through the ages and peoples. Some themes are treated in a purely narrative way, some others in a more philosophical or poetic way, but generally it remains a personal reading of each myth, which aims to awaken critical thought as much as evasion."


Pascal adds: "The writing process was exceptionally short, only six weeks. I wanted more spontaneous and song-oriented music with clear and efficient structures. For the first time I tried to write the music always thinking stage-wise, always anticipating how every riff or lead would be perceived live, and, of course, how it could be performed."


As a live band through and through, GOROD plans to bring its trademark power and precision to North America on a full tour in support of "Aethra". Before coming to the states, GOROD will tour in Europe with headliners BEYOND CREATION, as well as fellow support acts ENTHEOS and BROUGHT BY PAIN.

GOROD is:

Julien "Nutz" Deyres: Vocals

Mathieu Pascal: Guitars

Ben "Barby" Claus: Bass

Nicolas Alberny: Guitars

Karol Diers: Drums

MYLES KENNEDY Releases 'The Great Beyond' Video

Myles Kennedy just released the latest music video for the song "The Great Beyond" from his debut solo album, "Year Of The Tiger". The clip comes on the heels of wrapping a U.S. tour run with SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS.

"The Great Beyond" video was shot in black and white and features performance footage of the song from various stops on Myles's sold-out summer tour of Europe, where performed the material live for the first time with his backing band from the album: Tim Tournier on bass and Zia Uddin on drums and percussion.

Myles Kennedy, not one to spend a lot of time at home, is heading back out on tour of the U.S. in support of "Year Of The Tiger". The 18-date run will kick off on November 13 in Chicago, Illinois and wrap on December 16 in Seattle, Washington. The performances will feature music from the album as well as selections from Myles's work with ALTER BRIDGE, THE MAYFIELD FOUR and SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY AND THE CONSPIRATORS. WALKING PAPERS will open all dates.

On "Year Of The Tiger", Myles embarked on his first venture as a solo artist by embracing musical elements and influences he hadn’t explored previously in his career. Kennedy himself played banjo, lap steel, bass, and mandolin in addition to guitar throughout the album. The emotional journey and personal story of Myles is captured in a bluesy Americana album with a twist of country and rock, swirling and flowing around the incredible, soulful voice that the world has come to know.

BABYMETAL Parts Ways With YUIMETAL, Releases New Single 'Starlight'

BABYMETAL's 2018 Japanese tour will begin at Makuhari Messe starting October 23 and will be ending at Kobe World Memorial Hall on October 31. And just days before the start of these performances, BABYMETAL digitally released its new song "Starlight" while also unveiling the music video on October 19. A portion of this new song "Starlight" is included in BABYMETAL's graphic novel "Apocrypha: The Legend Of Babymetal"'s trailer.

The start of the BABYMETAL Japanese performances will mark the rebirth of the band in which Su-Metal and Moametal form the core.

According to BABYMETAL's official web site, since last December in Hiroshima, Yuimetal had been absent from performing and during this time both Su-Metal and Moametal as well as the entire staff team had been preparing for her awaited return. However, Yuimetal came to a decision that she will not be performing at October's Japan performances and that she will no longer be a part of BABYMETAL.

Yuimetal released a statement about her decision to leave BABYMETAL, explaining that she may go on to pursue a solo career as Mizuno Yu.

he wrote: "I am truly sorry for the inconvenience I have caused so many people due to being absent for an extended period of time. I have mulled over this over and over again, but I have decided to leave BABYMETAL at this time.

"I feel very sorry that my decision will disturb the other members and some many fans who have supported BABYMETAL. I am further terribly sorry to sadden the fans who have supported BABYMETAL.

"I had the strong desire to appear on stage again but my physical condition is not at its best even now, and further I feel that I would like to pursue my dream, one that I have had from a long time ago, of going on my own as Mizuno Yui. It is these factors that led to my decision.

She added: "I am thankful for the numerous and precious experiences I was able to have being a part of BABYMETAL. I always felt day to day that I was truly blessed. The live shows where we all smiled together and became as One were truly happy and enjoyable times. I will do my utmost best to be able to again one day meet all of you as Mizuno Yui. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the last eight years."

BABYMETAL will also be having a festival-type event with special guests on October 28 which will be held at Saitama Super Arena. This will be BABYMETAL's first time to be hosting such an event and will be a special night to remember for all attendees.

"The album was recorded in Audio Avenue Studios (Norway) and Sound Suite Studios (France), while the mixing and mastering took place in Hansen Studios (Denmark) with mixing engineer Jacob Hansen.

"This album is something unique to us as it is the first one we have made together with our fans; everyone who have supported our pledge campaign has directly contributed to the funding of the album and to make it what it has turned out to be.

"We are very proud of what we have achieved together and we're very eager to share it with you, hoping that you all will find it as special as we do."

SIRENIA will embark on a European tour in November with support from fellow Norwegians TRIOSPHERE. SIRENIA will bring its epic melancholic symbiosis of orchestral opuses and raw heavy metal sounds to the U.K., France, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and Italy.

Prior to the recording of "Dim Days Of Dolor", SIRENIA collaborated with Zoldan on choir vocals on all its albums except its 2002 debut, "At Sixes And Sevens". She also did some lead vocals on SIRENIA's cover version of Leonard Cohen's "First We Take Manhattan" on the 2004 EP "Sirenian Shores".

Emmanuelle told Femme Metal Webzine about her musical background: "I learned the piano when I was child, and I tried drums later, but I had to admit very fast that I was better in singing. So I began to sing in a pop/rock band as the lead singer. We made some really nice shows, and won some competitions. It was a really nice period of creativity and concerts we did in the same time we did our studies at the university. Then I decided to go the conservatory to learn a good vocal technique, and after some years of work and two years of specialization, I began a career… in opera. It was a bit unexpected, but life can be really strange sometimes. But during my operatic career, I never stopped doing a lot of other music projects, in different styles (rock, jazz, R&B), creating music, making concerts and recording metal albums for many bands, choirs parts and also lead vocals."

GOTTHARD Collaborates With STATUS QUO's FRANCIS ROSSI On New Single, 'Bye Bye Caroline'

Released in 1997, "Defrosted" was the very first live album released by the Swiss hard rock band GOTTHARD. To this day, it is seen as a cult milestone in the group's career that helped establish GOTTHARD as the most successful band from Switzerland.

For more than 25 years, GOTTHARD has thrived in the global spotlight with a career that includes 16 No. 1 albums, over three million records sold, multiple awards and over 2,000 shows all over the planet. And now, 21 years after "Defrosted"'s release, the circle is completed as GOTTHARD returns to Sony Switzerland and Nuclear Blast with "Defrosted 2".

An ultimate compilation of unplugged versions of GOTTHARD's greatest hits, "Defrosted 2" was recorded this past March on the "Defrosted" tour. Even though the concept was the same as it was over 20 years ago — to capture the unique chemistry between the band and the fans — the circumstances that the band find themselves in are different. Both the band and their audience have grown, and yet after 25 years, it's the same unparalleled intimacy that GOTTHARD brings to its live performances that makes this record what it is.

After celebrating its "silver" anniversary with its latest studio album that set new chart records and saw GOTTHARD play shows at a number of prestigious festivals, "Defrosted 2" showcases 22 of the band's most iconic tracks as well as two brand new songs.

s soon as Leo Leoni, Freddy Scherer, Marc Lynn and Hena Habegger begin to play the first notes of the purest acoustic sound while vocalist Nic Maeder casually greets the audience in three different languages, even those who are new to GOTTHARD will soon feel at home. If you're not sold by this point, then the first chorus of the album's first track, the sensual and groovy "Miss Me", will serve as a stark reminder that the only important thing is the joy of live music. Andy Pupato is as faultless behind the kit as he was on the first "Defrosted", while Ernesto Ghezzi once again proves his talent as a live keyboard player and "The G-Strings" (the string quartet centered around Barbara Kubli), which performs live with GOTTHARD from time to time, provides a perfect dose of elegance. Newly appointed backing vocalists Maram El Dsoki and Barbara Comi's velvety soft vocals and radiant power give the band wings and imbue "Defrosted 2" with an exciting new charm.


Whether it's 1992's "Hush", the gilded "Heaven" from 2000, the "comeback single" "Remember It's Me" (issued after the tragic loss of original vocalist Steve Lee), the hard-rocking "Bang!" from the 2014 album of the same name, the tender "Beautiful" or the recent "Stay With Me", "Defrosted 2" is a well-paced journey through the years, including breathtaking solos, wild honky tonk interludes ("Sweet Little Rock 'N' Roller") and sincere declarations of love. And if you think you've heard everything after the wild trip through 25 years of classics, there are two new tracks on top. First, there's the mighty ballad "What I Wouldn't Give", which tears everything down in a powerful wave of emotion, and the party hit "Bye Bye Caroline", which is also the first single from "Defrosted 2". Lyrically inspired by STATUS QUO's 1973 hit "Caroline", the live opener of the U.K. rockers for 25 years, the track was created with Francis Rossi himself, who was also involved in contributing guitar and duet vocals. The song was spontaneously written backstage on the last "Rock Meets Classic" tour, when Francis, Leo and Nic sealed their new friendship directly by writing a new song together.

The video for "Bye Bye Caroline" — featuring Francis Rossi — can be seen below.

Due on December 7, "Defrosted 2" was produced by Leo Leoni in collaboration with Nicolo Fragile and, as usual, Charlie Bauerfeind was responsible for the mix. The double album, which will be released in the high-quality Ecolbook format and as a four-fold vinyl version worldwide on December 7, 2018, was further refined in the Wisseloord Studio in Hilversum, where legends like THE ROLLING STONES, U2 and the SCORPIONS have already worked and recorded.

TESLA's FRANK HANNON Releases Video For Cover Of DEEP PURPLE's 'Hush'

TESLA's Frank Hannon has released the official music video for his cover of DEEP PURPLE's "Hush", taken from the second installment of his solo cover series, "From One Place… To Another Vol. 2". As with "Vol. 1", the album features a number of special guests, this time including Roger Fisher of HEART, Graham Whitford (son of AEROSMITH's Brad Whitford), Duane Betts (son of ALLMAN BROTHERS' Dickey), Randy Hansen and Jared James Nichols.

"This volume is definitely a step up for me as an artist," declares Hannon. "I chose to sing some of my favorite songs from very different genres ranging from AEROSMITH, Chaka Khan, BLACK SABBATH to Seal. I am proud of 'Volume 1' but 'Volume 2' came out a lot edgier and with some heavier tones."

While "Volume 1" was more roots and acoustic focused, "From One Place… To Another Vol. 2" is all electric with full backing band, recorded in various locations with a portable recorder and eventually assembled back in Hannon's home studio.

"As it turns out, singing is becoming a lot of fun for me," Hannon admits. "I've left the smoking guitar duties to some very special guests including the Jimi Hendrix tribute master Randy Hansen, HEART founder Roger Fisher, Jared James Nichols, as well as other guest artists who contributed flavors."

b>Randy Hansen and Roger Fisher have always been heroes of Frank's. "Known for his 'Magic Man' guitar sounds, Roger and I recorded a HEART classic 'Sing Child', which is almost as funky a song as the man himself," Frank says.

A chance meeting south of the border led to the recording of a classic AEROSMITH cut. "I ran into guitarist Graham Whitford in Mexico while on tour and asked him if he'd be interested in recording guitars on his dad's song and he graciously obliged," Frank says. "Six months later, we put it together via the Internet and 'Lord of the Thighs' became a highlight for me."

The biggest surprise of the album is Frank's take on Seal's "Kiss From A Rose". "It's a vocal melody that has haunted me for years," he says. "When I decided to record it, I spent weeks researching Seal and learned how he wrote the song with no instruments, using only his voice as the music background. This really opened my eyes and ears to the power of a vocal melody that drives a song and I recorded it similarly on my portable 8-track in a dressing room on tour."

"From One Place… To Another Vol. 2" track listing:

01. Hush (featuring Randy Hansen)

02. Lord Of The Thighs (featuring Graham Whitford)

03. You Can't Always Get What You Want (featuring Duane Betts)

04. Tell Me Somethin' Good

05. Kiss From A Rose

06. Sing Child (featuring Roger Fisher)

07. I Can See Clearly Now

08. Spanish Castle Magic (featuring Randy Hansen)

09. I Can Help

10. Sweet Leaf (featuring Jared James Nichols)

AZUSA Featuring Members Of THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, EXTOL, And SEA + AIR Release "Heavy Yoke" Music Video

Members of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Extol, and Sea + Air have joined creative forces as Azusa. The band's debut album, Heavy Yoke, will be released on November 16th via Solid State Records in North America.

A music video for the album's title track can be seen below. The band described the clip as the "abstract visual metaphor about habit loops, rewinding time, and loss of innocence. Aesthetically, we were imaging what it would look like if Jonathan Glazer directed an episode of Twin Peaks."  

About the track itself, Azusa said, "The musical elements in 'Heavy Yoke' are constantly challenging the song's center line and balance point. While the acrobatic riffing insists on taking the tune off-track, the vocal lines add an anchoring sense of stability within the chaos. The opening riff is a precarious roller coaster and one of the more jarring, yet thrilling rides on the whole album. After the intro drop, the chorus catches you in a cushion of harmony, leaving you feeling secure and ready to take that ride again."

The band furthered, "Thematically, 'Heavy Yoke' deals with those unspeakable truths lurking in the subconscious mind. You can ignore them for a while, but sooner or later, they'll haunt you in the night. When you finally wake yourself up and let the daylight in, its healing powers reveal universal truths, which bring clarity and relief."

Azusa's music is a carnival of contrast - it's captivating with unconventional nerve. Uniting the complementary skills of its members, Azusa's sound is a thrash-fusion tour de force. Can you imagine Kate Bush fronting Slayer? Death collaborating with Annette Peacock? These allegedly incongruent influences dissolve seamlessly in an alluring sonic alchemy.

Uncompromisingly experimental, Azusa's curated approach showcases each member's unique strengths as a reaction to previous endeavours, more so than an extension of them. Reflecting on life's existential mysteries, Azusa's lyrics seek to explore cognitive dissonances at the crossroads of upbringing, mysticism, belief and betrayal. Defying expectations by embracing contradiction, Azusa finds strength in vulnerability, harmony in dissonance, and melody in discord.
 
The band commented on its debut, saying, "This album is special for all of us and we're currently feeling the same excited feelings we got before we debuted any of our previous efforts. We are really fortunate to have been able to create these songs together and to be able to share them with fans of our former and current bands, as well as new fans."

Azusa finished by stating, "It has been such a relief crafting music without having any outside expectations placed on us. Turning to creative playfulness with a more relaxed and intuitive approach to songwriting, we feel that this collection of songs will hold a unique space in the atmosphere of heavy music."

Tracklisting:

"Interstellar Islands"
"Heart Of Stone"
"Heavy Yoke"
"Fine Lines"
"Lost In The Ether"
"Spellbinder"
"Programmed To Distress"
"Eternal Echo"
"Iniquitous Spiritual Praxis"

BLOODBATH: Video For 'Chainsaw Lullaby' Song From 'The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn' Album

The official video for the song "Chainsaw Lullaby" from the demonic death metal supergroup BLOODBATH can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's upcoming fifth album, "The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn", which will be released on October 26 via Peaceville.

Recorded by BLOODBATH and Karl Daniel Liden at Ghost Ward, City Of Glass and Tri-Lamb Studios during the first half of this foul year of our Lord, the album is the second with Nick Holmes (PARADISE LOST) on vocals. If 2014's "Grand Morbid Funeral" was a thick spray of deathly noise, on "The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn", it is the rotten, fetid state of the world and our inevitable doom that is casting a looming shadow over proceedings. With world leaders threatening nuclear annihilation in 140 characters over social media, capitalism tearing itself apart, a wilful march into a surveillance state via handy pocket spying devices, a shifting climate that appears to literally be trying to kill us… It's all fuelled BLOODBATH's newest ode to filth.


"What are we presenting with this album? Humanity's unfaltering march prone towards downfall," declares guitarist Anders "Blakkheim" Nyström (KATATONIA). "The threat to this world isn't from far beyond the sun, the enemy is right here, within the walls. Only the god of emptiness will survive us all. The arrow of Satan is drawn!"


Right from the opening notes of the scything "Fleischmann", this sense of impending horror is carved into the music. The brutal "Wayward Samaritan" is anything but merciful, while "Deader" is a truly morbid workout, and "Morbid Antichrist" summons the spirits of those two classic death metal outfits perfectly. By the time things reach an atomic conclusion on the evil rock'n'roll of "Chainsaw Lullaby", you'll have been sucked into BLOODBATH's unholy world forever.


here's an extra nasty layer on "The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn". This time, among the usual chainsaw riffs and blasts, the darkness of Blakkheim's words is also reflected in the addition of new guitarist Joakim Karlsson of Swedish black metal plague CRAFT. It's a step forward that's only given the band's already fearsome fangs extra rabid bite.


He's not the only extra face getting covered in gore. "Bloodicide" — quite literally meaning "The Killing Of Blood" — features a full house of British death metal guest stars, with CARCASS's Jeff Walker, BOLT THROWER/MEMORIAM singer Karl Willetts and CANCER's John Walker all lending their larynxes to the madness.


"It wasn't deliberately planned to be just british guests, but as it randomly turned out that way, it became a really cool feat!" laughs Blakkheim. "Nick [Holmes], Jeff, Karl and John are all legends respectively within the U.K. death metal scene and we're proud to bring them all together on our little old school soiree to tribute the days of old.


"There's no mitigating circumstances coming your way any time soon," he adds. "The world is a mad place full of darkness, horror, disease and terror! Hell on Earth is real and not just limited to fiction. The dark ages transcend all frontiers, ever present but yet unseen."


"The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn" track listing:

01. Fleischmann [03:38]

02. Bloodicide [04:56]

03. Wayward Samaritan [03:39]

04. Levitator [04:37]

05. Deader [04:06]

10. Chainsaw Lullaby [03:20]

The cover artwork was created by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, SOULFLY, ICED EARTH) and can be seen below.

BLOODBATH will lay waste to stages across Europe in November and December as they join KREATOR, DIMMU BORGIR and HATEBREED on the "European Apocalypse" tour.

INGLORIOUS To Release Ride To Nowhere Album In January; "Where Are You Now?" Music Video Streaming

Frontiers Music Srl has announced the release of Ride To Nowhere, the third studio album by Inglorious, on January 25th. The debut single from the album, “Where Are You Now?”, is released today. Watch a video for the song below.

In amongst their touring commitments, Inglorious spent 2018 writing and recording their third studio album, Ride To Nowhere. A much darker, more reflective album than their previous releases, the new songs further hone the Inglorious sound - the pulsating rhythms, driving guitars and infectious vocal melodies.

“This album is different in many ways. The songs came about very quickly. As with all our songs we start with a riff, and this time having new guitarist Drew added a new and heavier feel to a couple of songs. We wrote the basics mostly together all in one room on acoustic guitars and then I went away and crafted the stories I wanted to tell. For me this album is very personal. I am for the first time writing about a lot of my feelings, relationships and losses...” - Nathan James

“On this album I feel that the songs are a true reflection of what we’ve been through over the past few years - both as a band and as individuals. You’ve got the highs, the lows and lessons learned along the way. The making of this album was at a time when we all had our own personal situations and changes to deal with. I feel that this definitely comes through on the recordings and particularly songs like ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Where Are You Now?’ and ‘Glory Days”. - Colin Parkinson

The recording of Ride To Nowhere involves for the first time new guitarist Drew Lowe, who says, “The album is the next step for the band in maturity. Being that it's my first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we started we knew what type of record was coming. Hopefully the fans will love it as they follow us on the musical journey.”

From the body blow riffs of the first single “Where Are You Now?”, to the beautiful melodies and bluesy overtones of “I Don’t Know You,” from the assault of “Freak Show” to the acoustic ballad “Glory Days”, Ride To Nowhere is an absolute gem of an album, showing not only all the influences from iconic rock albums of the 70’s, but also offering the band’s own sound and interpretation. As with Inglorious “II”, the album was mixed by the legendary Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith).

“There’s a lot of variety on this album, more so than the previous ones and that I really like. Sonically I think it sounds more fresh, contemporary in a sense and that goes for a bunch of songs on the album as well. Just the singles alone are different than how we’ve sounded in the past, but still have the Inglorious feel and vibe! Lastly I also think that musically it’s better than the previous albums, everyone plays very tasteful, soulful and collectively I feel that it’s perfect!” - Andreas Eriksson

“We’re all really happy with the way the new record sounds and look forward to seeing how the fans receive it. I personally can’t wait to play the new material live on the road!”- Phil Beaver

The album will be released on CD, Limited Edition Box Set (CD + T-shirt “L" size), Vinyl, Limited Edition Crystal Vinyl - exclusive to Frontiers online shop, Limited Edition White Vinyl - exclusive to the Inglorious online shop.

All vinyls are gatefold sleeve.

Tracklisting:

"Where Are You Now?"
"Freak Show"
"Never Alone"
"Tomorrow"
"Queen"
"Liar"
"Time To Go"
"I Don’t Know"

Montreal’s FRACTAL CYPHER – “From The Above And To The Stars” Video Streaming

Montreal prog quartet Fractal Cypher are premiering their first single and music video "From The Above And To The Stars”. The track is off the band's upcoming mini-album Prelude To An Impending Outcome due out this coming November.

"This is the heaviest song on the record, it's got lots of heavy guitar riffs, it has a djenty vibe that is quite obvious all the way through. This track was influenced a bit from what we did on our past 'The Human Paradox' in terms of the balance between heavy riffs and melodies. On the lyrical aspect, the main topic of the track is about sci-fi stuff, talking about the possibilities of the existence of another civilization in the universe. We made the music relate to the lyrics in terms of chords choices and sonority." - Fractal Cypher

Each track has a different prominent genre influence from power ballad, blues, djent and jazz with the band’s heavy and melodic base as an anchor. The album artwork was done by Silent Q Design out of Montreal and foreshadows the moody and existential prog metal that lies within. Although this album is more intimate with different textures and influences, the reception to its predecessor should be a prime indication of the talents of Fractal Cypher; this next release is sure to be a masterwork.  

Tracklisting:

“Coming Back To Life”
“The Grandeur Of It All”
“From The Above And To The Stars”
“Red Lady”

CRIPPLE BASTARDS Release "Passi Nel Vuoto" Music Video

Italian grindcore legends Cripple Bastards celebrate 30 years of misanthropic extremity with their seventh full-length album, La Fine Cresce da Dentro (meaning: “The End Is Growing From Within”). The album is due out November 9th on CD/LP/Digital. Physical pre-orders are available via Relapse.com here and digital downloads / streaming services here.

The band have released a video for the new single, "Passi Nel Vuoto". Vocalist Giulio The Bastard says, "The song 'Passi Nel Vuoto' (translated to 'Steps Into The Void') is a parallel between the annihilation of the individual lost in the most obtuse massification, induced to waste and sedated in his emotions, and the value of life increasingly low - reduced to being a cog in the consumer machine. The graphics of our new album La Fine Cresce Da Dentro are all unreleased pictures taken from the vaults of a crime magazine that existed from the 1950s through the '90s, accessed from the archives of the criminal police based in Milano, Italy. In making this video we have chosen to alternate similar photos with scenarios of mass stratification and blind conformism. As the lyrics say, 'What's left is desolation / but it doesn't make sense to realize it / it's the weight of survival: how much you spend / how much you can cost'."

Stream two more tracks, “Non Coinvolto” and “La Memoria Del Dolore”, below. Both are available on all streaming services here.

Recorded at the legendary Fredman Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (At The Gates, Dark Tranquility), La Fine Cresce da Dentro is eighteen tracks of inconceivable speed and brutality surpassing even their previous work. Over three decades in, Cripple Bastards are showing no signs of slowing down and continue to destroy unsuspecting eardrums with hate-filled, grind punk chaos.

La Fine Cresce Da Dentro tracklisting:

"Suicidio Assistito"
"Non Coinvolto"
"La Memoria Del Dolore"
"Passi Nel Vuoto"
"Ombra Nell’ombra"
"Due Metà In Un Errore"
"Chiusura Forzata"
"Dove Entra IL Coltello"
"Crimine Contro l’immagine"
"Narcolessia Emotiva"
"Nervi In Guerra"
"Sguardo Neutro"
"Interrato Vivo"
"Equilibrio Ansiogeno"
"Quali Sentieri"
"Decessi Per Cause Sconosciute"
"Recidive"

CREATURES Premiere “Old Style F.A.” Video

Unleashing their second EP II unto the world through their own independent label Old Haunt Records this past July, Creatures are kicking it "Old Style F.A." with their new video. The video was filmed during the band's hometown show in Toronto at the Bovine while they were on their Ontario tour this past summer.

The band explains the track: 

"This song is a light-hearted story about a typical Friday night going out with your friends. Starting from the pre-drink at your house to hitting up the bar and ending up in a fight to back your friend up."

Spawned in the Toronto murk in 2015, Creatures is a group effort with a long history that intertwines the lives of numerous local bands to summon a truly devastating soundscape of unbridled chaos. Inspired by bands such as Necrophagist, Despised Icon and Thy Art Is Murder, Creatures is a band playing heavy and catchy deathcore, taking intense sounds and mixing in small elements of extreme and black metal.

Their latest effort II reaches into a large porcelain cup of topics. Instead of just merely presenting their themes to their listeners Creatures smashes the grail in their faces making sure their themes cut deep and stay with them. Whether they are lyrics about the futility of existence with a cartoon metaphor, or the bond of brotherhood within an intense party setting, there is a message for everyone to latch onto. Regardless, the songs are a visceral insight into the band’s life.

KATAKLYSM Releases '…And Then I Saw Blood' Music Video

Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based melodic death metallers KATAKLYSM have released a new music video for the song "…And Then I Saw Blood". The band explored a new creative and artistic side when its hired acclaimed Romanian visionary artist Costin Chioreanu to tell the story of the song. The clip chronicles a post-apocalyptic world dominated by A.I. Two dying brothers are brought to a facility where their minds are uploaded into a digital virtual world dominated and controlled by oppressors of mankind. As hope appears to defy the system in place, the two brothers are forced to make a decision to either follow their human instinct or their new found conscious.

KATAKLYSM frontman Maurizio Iacono comments: "'…And Then I Saw Blood' can be interpreted in many different ways as it has an open concept to it. Everyone can see it the way they want but we wanted an animated video done with an artistic flair. Costin was the perfect artist to do it. I told him the central theme of the track deals with the betrayal of two close friends. I asked him to bring in his own world on how he envisioned the song and theme. Costin totally out did himself in this futuristic but realistic interpretation of where we are headed as people continue to get absorbed by technology and this urge to create something bigger, stronger, and more intelligent in this obsession to become godlike."

"…And Then I Saw Blood" is taken from KATAKLYSM's latest album, "Meditations", which was released on June 1 via Nuclear Blast. The 10-song disc was produced by the band's guitarist Jean-François Dagenais and drummer Oli Beaudoin, and was mixed by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR). Mastering duties were handled by Paul Logus (PANTERA).

The "Meditations" cover artwork was created for Ocvlta Designs by Surtsey, who also crafted the artwork for KATAKLYSM's previous record, "Of Ghosts And Gods".
