REVENGE DIVISION

Mar 31st, 2015 | By | Category: Band

REVENGE DIVISION  is a young band from Povážská Bystrica, playing its own synthesis of death and thrash metal with modern metalcore overtones. The act was established in May 2011, though its roots stretch back to 2008 when the core members Matej, Tom and Eduard met at high-school and started playing together mostly covers of well known bands. With the arrival of Juraj as the second guitarist and Jeremy who took the vocalist post, Revenge Division started composing their first original songs, which were recorded in 2011 on the “Mediocracy” demo. Soon after, the band started appearing live, as well as running in various music contests.

As far as music style goes, REVENGE DIVISION combine Swedish melodic death metal, the classic thrash metal and metalcore influences, with the emphasis on energy, melody and wide vocal range. Thus far, the band’s milestone were bronze in MetalGate Massacre metal bands contest, reaching the final round of Wacken Metal Battle Slovakia, or supporting the American deathcore icon Carnifex. Towards the end of 2012, Revenge Division entered the Seabeast Studio in Prague, recording their full-length debut, entitled “The New Generation”, which was released by MetalGate Records in the end of 2014.  Lyrics-wise, the debut comments on the state of today’s world, dealing with issues such as manipulation, curtailing of personal freedom, media propaganda, or abuse of warfare or religion.

CYCLE BEATING

Oct 9th, 2014 | By | Category: Band

At the foot of the vineyard, if the sun goes down and the first shadows are moving over the pictorial timber framed houses, the bardic Rhine river plains show their dark side. Who isn’t able to escape fast enough from the dark back into his sweet home, runs the risk to be overrun by the agressive and bleak riff landslides of CYCLE BEATING.

CYCLE BEATING, thats a nasty mixture of Thrash and Groove Metal combined with a juicy list of Core. This monster has claws… claws, with which it shows humanity the dark and melancholic side of the everyday  life quite plainly. Since 2012, the four headed ogre exsits and lurks in the shadows of the towns for it’s chance.

For the 7th of Novembre 2014 is now a dusk-to-dawn curfew for the entire federal territory advisable. CYCLE BEATING has exempt from their last donds with their debutalbum “The Age Of Depression” and is now planning a major offensive. The pounding, brutal Songs which are directly going into the ears and which attack the nervous system aren’t empty husks. They decry the drawbacks of the society of the 21st century and put a mirror directly in front of our ugly faces

“The Age Of Depression” was produced in Kohlekeller-Studios and will be released on Novembre 7th 2014.

THE STONE

Sep 30th, 2014 | By | Category: Band

The Serbian Black Metal act THE STONE has been a constant in European underground for over 18 years. With a load of releases, tours and festival appearances under their belt, they proved and keep proving to be one of the best upcoming Black and Extreme Metal bands in Europe and beyond. Formed as STONE TO FLESH in the city of Belgrade, Serbia, their journey began in mid 1996. After a couple of years of activity, the band had two demos to pick the interest of underground media as well as tape traders of the day, and, soon after, these two both got officially released on one MC entitled “Unveiled Evil” (Demonion Productions, 1999).

It didn’t take them long to come up with their debut album in 2000, after which the band became THE STONE. Their groundbreaking album “Magla” hit stores in summer 2006 and is their first one released via Folter Records, which remains the band’s label until today. With tours and live appearances lining up, the band spent their time building up success on this as well as consecutive albums “Umro” and “Golet”, forcing the entire European ground to surrender to their cause.

In autumn 2014, THE STONE will reveal the seventh chapter in their album legacy, appropriately titled “Nekroza”. Including over 50 minutes of their well-known, unparalleled brand of Black Metal and even more music than any of their previous records before, they once again stand firm and grim in their deliverance, showing that they’re more than ready to step up the pace and take themselves and their listeners further than ever before.

IN LOVE YOUR MOTHER – “The Great Ape Project” out in October first teaser online

Aug 8th, 2014 | By | Category: Allgemein

Describing the music of the wild guys from IN LOVE YOUR MOTHER in words isn’t easy – and that’s a good thing! The sound is living from an unbelievably high and massive energy which is combined in a heavy sound concept. The young band’s musical influences are various: Mathcore and Progressive Metal are the base for their experimental and brutal sound. These roots and the bands’ own pepper end up in a meaty portion MotherCore. The sounds are living from an unbelievable blasting energy which is transported in a brutal sound concept. Everyone will be able to assure himself on October 10th 2014 when the album will be released via Dr. Music Records.

The idea behind their bandname delivers the content which is also represented in their music: views and insights about the sick and bad world we were warned of by our mothers. With their dissonant, technical riffs and their distinctive, yet genre-typical shouts, IN LOVE YOUR MOTHER are playing out their hearts – what is also represented in their lyrics. In the 17 songs of „The Great Ape Project“ singer and guitarist Valentine Baumgartner, bassist Amedo Mauriell and Drummer Andrea Tinner are dealing in a progressively insanee way with the fear of themselves (“Signs Of A Medium Life”), but also with the doubts they have towards society (“Ein Hase, Zwei Haese”). The conventional is refused and the band deals rather with “Fishpunks”, “Hedehogs” and “Haesen”. “Wish Me An Ocean Part 1 & 2” are addressed to the jaded homo sapiens who isn’t able to have a look beyond one’s own nose and is satisfied with his low cravings. In the first part turned off guitar lines meet hypnotic recoveries, while in the second part, the band dashes straight forward. “Johnny Rocke Is Not Dead” deals with a dadaistic comic-strip character which swings between madness and fun and its mythology is also a link to Valentin’s other Band Vendredi Soir Swing. More personal are the lyrics of “We’re Gonna Dance Till Everyone Is Naked And Fall Apart”. In this chaotic chunk, which is also the first music video, the dreams of singer Valentine where picked in a mixture of an decent boom and intense dreamy vocals.

IN LOVE YOUR MOTHER successfully transported the high energy and the brutal sound they have on stage on a studio album. The unmistakably experimental mixture is represented by every single song on the album. “The Great Ape Project“ takes the listener deliberately out of kilter and fathoms the extremes in music. This album is definetely worth a listen for everyone who is addicted to Metal and Hardcore with impacts of progressive chaos and an adequate dash of Melody. Fans of bands like MASTODON, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN or MESHUGGHA shouldn’t miss this album!

To get a first impression of “The Great Ape Project” IN LOVE YOUR MOTHER have published a teaser:

Founded in 2005, ENFFEBLE are one of the well-kept secrets of the German metalscene. Their mixture of Melodic Thrash and Death Metal combined with influences of Screamo and Hardcore are made for best entertainment – in the CD player at home as well as live on stage. Right from the beginning ENFEEBLE showed their quality to get a small crowd really excited about their encouraged and emotional performance as well. The different elements which are combined on their second album “Encapsulate This Moment” represents the instrumental individuals in a surprising and refreshing form.

On “Encapsulate This Moment”, lead-guitarist Pascal Stafflage plays heavy earcatchings riffs and fiddly solos, Klaus Boven entertains with his steadily present, deep and thundering bass-guitar, Christopher Grüner dictates the rhythms with his concentric drumming and Lucas Brinker convinces with his expressive voice, which is catchy with its shouts as well as the charismatic clean passages. “Encapsulate This Moment” takes the listener by his balls and guarentees an enjoyable listening with its concentrated number of ear catchers.

ENFEEBLE are a band which focuses on the music in its core and doesn’t waste time with thinking about genres. All of this points together are the reason why “Encapsulate This Moment” is like a fresh breeze in your CD-player and the reason, that the guys show themselves as a passional liveact, who leads the audience to more and more movement in front of the stage.

SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION

Feb 6th, 2014 | By | Category: Band

For long time now, the South Moravian SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION constitute one of the most rigorous and the most focused acts of the Czech metal scene. You may remember them as a doom metal band, but that no longer is the case since the turn of the millennium. With the arrival of new members the band became a progressive thrashing hydra with unique sound, melodic and rhythmic compositions, as well as with the unmistakable presentation of the vocalist Doctor. Now, after three long years since the last, highly acclaimed by critics and fans alike, album “Of Us”, MetalGate Records is proud to release its successor with the elegiac title “The Hike & Other Laments”.

On this brand new album, SIX DEGREES OF SEPARATION further enhances its specific sound, using rich arrangements, thundering hymns that include plenty of backing vocals, and distinctive guitar riffs. Lyrics, as usual, focus on personal themes and narratives from the lives of individual band members, displaying a clear musical and personal maturation. On “The Hike & Other Laments” we have the honor of dealing with a high-quality band, confident in terms of expression, serving on a silver platter their art and emotions packed in an album that is polished like a diamond.

Members:

Doctor – Bass guitar and lead vocals

AREA CORE

Feb 6th, 2014 | By | Category: Band

Do you like quality metalcore and post-hardcore in overseas fashion? Does it seem doubtful that such music can originate in the heart of the Czech Republic? Then listen to the debut album of AREA CORE from Česká Lípa! In the second installment of the annual contest MetalGate Massacre, this band managed to score the overall fourth place, yet MetalGate Records found their energetic show and music so interesting that they offered the guys a privilege otherwise reserved only for the overall contest winner. Still, aren’t AREA CORE themselves winners thanks to their honest approach to music, the kick-ass whirlwind of metalcore riffs, pissed-off growls and melodic choruses?

This prolific young bunch has been frequenting the Czech stages for over four years now. After solidifying the band line-up and musical direction between 2008 and 2009, AREA CORE released in May 2010 their first demo “Unknown Soldier”, which got them noticed, resulting in first shows outside their home of Česká Lípa. A year later, the band enrolled into the aforementioned second installment of MetalGate Massacre contest, after which they headed on a tour over Czech and Slovak clubs with  another contest finalists xXXx, as well as performed alongside Atari Terror, Horkýže Slíže or Scream of the lambs. In 2012, AREA CORE  took part in yet another contest, Startér Live XT3, winning, thanks to which they performed on the Prague-based festival Žižkovská noc. Around that time, the band also started preparations of their debut album, first in the MetalGate Studio in Vsetín, under the producer oversight of Libor Kukula, and later with Jaroslav Lukáč in Negative Tunes. The release of the album was also preceded by releasing the eponymous title track as a single, which you can listen to on Bandzone.cz band profile or download it on the Metal Online portal. Be ready, for the end is nearing and AREA CORE are coming with it!

THOUGHTS FACTORY

Feb 4th, 2014 | By | Category: Band

THOUGHTS FACTORY are a German Progressive Metal band influenced by different styles and genres. The five musicians are creating an exciting mixture of metallic sounds in the vein of SYMPHONY X, & DREAM THEATER with gloomy parts like OPETH and incorporating Progressive Rock elements of TRANSATLANTIC, NEAL MORSE & AYREON all the while keeping it fresh on their debut album “Lost.

But “Lost” is much more than a combination of different influences. The album shows THOUGHTS FACTORY as a band with a sophisticated concept that succeeds in expressing their ideas through the music as well as the lyrics. “Lost” is a concept album which takes the audience on a personal journey through the mental state of one who is left behind. It processes the emotions and questions he has to face after the suicide of a beloved person. The dark parts have their place as well as straight metal riffs, tender keyboard melodies and euphoric orchestal passages which proof the complexity of the topic. The result is a diversified sound spectrum and a unique listening experience which enchaines the listener for the whole running time of more than an hour. Heavy grooves, breathtaking melodies and vocal passages as well as virtosic guitar solo parts prove that “Lost” is not just anohter ordinary progressive metal album.

THOUGHTS FACTORY are: Marcus Becker (Vocals) Sven Schornstein (Keys) Bernd Schönegge, Bass (session bassist for Paul Gilbert) Chris Maldener, Drums (session drummer for Paul Gilbert and Kiko Loureiro) and Markus Wittmann, Guitars (session guitarist for Alan Holdsworth, Scott Henderson and Mike Miller). In charge of engineering was Kristian “Kohle” Kohlmannslehner, who also produced big names such as Powerwolf, Sieges Even and Subsignal.

The talent of the five musicians and the high quality of “Lost” was spotted by the well-known German comedian BÜLENT CEYLAN who has chosen the songs for his two years “Haardrock-Tour” (in Germany, Austria and Switzerland) as inlet and pause music. The start of the tour is set for February 17th 2014 at the Capitol, Mannheim.

Furthermore it is planned that THOUHGTS FACTORY will play live as warm up artist on the recording of BÜLENT CEYLANs DVD in Mannheim on the July 25th, 26th and 27th 2014 at the Ehrenhof of the Barockschloss.

ISACAARUM

Feb 2nd, 2014 | By | Category: Band

ISACAARUM is a long time icon of the Czech metal scene that can face, with ease and a clean shield (well, maybe somewhat sullied with excrements), all the perverts worldwide and across all the extreme genres. Their unique carnal cocktail of grindcore and black metal now floods the ranks of MetalGate Records and crystallizes into a new album. Its title, “Whorecraft”, aptly indicates what the lyric side, full of nuances and innuendos, is all about – love, of course (meaning sexual and pornographic oddities of all shapes, forms and sizes). Add to that the visual side that presents the individual verses in the same numbered form as the Book does, and you know right away from where the wind is blowing.

Of course, music is the key, and with ISACAARUM you can be damn sure that even after all those years, their instrumentation is still energetic and playfully devastating. The ferocious grindcore tempos will mercilessly pound away your brain with the ferocity of a jackhammer, the occasional slower passages will offer you no relieve either as their hefty sub-bass will lacerate your ear drums, and if you are a metal aficionado, be sure to check out especially the second track “Spermafrost” that sounds as if taken from the best repertoire of the black fornicators Carpathian Forrest. Simply put, ISACAARUM clearly demonstrate that not only they are well versed in the extreme metal styles, but can also take those and transform them into their own authentic vision.

TORTHARRY

Feb 2nd, 2014 | By | Category: Band

After two years of hard work, the eighth studio album of the Czech death metal icon TORTHARRY, entitled Follow, is unleashed upon the world and coming with guns blazing production. The music site of the matter, from recording to final mastering, was orchestrated in the renowned Hertz studio in Poland, a favorite spot for many acclaimed metal bands from worldwide metal scene, resulting in a brutal death metal mayhem with sharp-as-razor sound. Visualization then comes from the master of Czech metal art, Jaromír “Deather” Bezruč, whose dark illustrations fit precisely with the album theme, for this time, the court lyricist of TORTHARRY Štefan Ležovič envisioned the piece as a reaction to the contemporary world, in which our liberties are slowly curtailed one by one, until there is no other option than become part of the mindless herd – hence Follow. Simply put, what awaits you is a grueling death metal blast on a truly profound topic!

The Czech metal act TORTHARRY is active on the Czech metal scene since 1991, arising on the ashes of a preceding band named Executor, beginning its death metal direction already with the first demo “Mezi nebem a peklem”. Since then, the guys have behind their belt eight studio albums (Follow included), contributions to several compilations, including “Tribute to Death” (USA, 1999), and a myriad of gigs, with notable highlights being two shows in Czech Republic in 1998 with the ultimate genre icon Death and the South American tour with Gorgoroth and Belphegor in 2007.

NORTHERN PLAGUE

Feb 2nd, 2014 | By | Category: Band

NORTHERN PLAGUEs foundation goes back to July 2009 as Fenris and Saryon (ex-drummer) startet the first regularly rehearsels. It was checkered time, when first problems started to emerge. The first breakthrough came in the beginning of 2010 as Ghorakh (Bass) and Janus (Guitar) joined the band. At the same time the first intensive preparation for the bands debut release took place.

The result of about one year of work was the recording of the first EP “Blizzard of The North” in the HERTZ studio (where also bands like Vader, Decapitated, and Hate recorded their albums) together with the Wieslawski brothers. The band gained experience through their shows in whole Poland. June 2011 was not only the release of the debut EP “Blizzard of the North” but also a new drummer joined NORTHERN PLAGUE – Damyen. The band started again to work hard to promote “Blizzard of the North”. The recordings got excellent reviews in Poland as well as internationally, which was an extra motivation to play more live shows. The band shared the stage with DECAPITATED, PANDEMONIUM, LOST SOUL, FRONTISDE, TRAUMA among others. Further more NORTHERN PAGUE played two tours in Poland: The “We Are The Plague Tour 2012” and the “Faces Of Rage Tour”. In the end of 2012, NORTHERN PLAGUE played some shows on the “Back To The Plague Tour 2012” as support for the undisputed leader of heavy tunes – VADER. The newest release of the band was a music video for the song “Pestilence”.

The year 2013 NORTHERN PLAGUE spent with the intense work on their first full-length-album. After months of hard rehearsals, the recordings started in the Division Studio in Warschau. The album “Manifesto” was recorderd in the Sound Division Studio (BEHEMOTH, DECAPITATED, HATE) under the eye of Arkadiusz “Malta” Malczewski. He was not only the producer and sound engineer, but has done the mixing of the album as well, which took place in the HERTZ STUDIO in Bialystok. NORTHERN PLAGUE has also signed a contract with the renowned German label Folter Records to release “Manifesto”. A new chapter to start in the band’s history as well as the release of the album are planned for January 2014 …

RETURN TO INNOCENCE

Feb 1st, 2014 | By | Category: Band

The time has come! After four long years, the pioneers of Czech epic doom/death metal RETURN TO INNOCENCE resurfaced with their new album “The Ring of Moon”. Some time ago it would appear that this horde from Mladá Boleslav is definitively a thing of the past, with it’s members moving on to embellish new promising acts, such as MINORITY SOUND or CRUADALACH, and yet, now the old wolves are back to show the youngsters how to play metal, holding their banner pretty damn high in their gauntlets! If then you fancy the magical atmosphere of the 90s sound, as well as the old masterpieces of TRISTANIA, THERION or AMORPHIS, this melodic barrage of authentic death/doom with its dark and heroic vibe is exactly what you are looking for. Truly, a return to the moonlit innocence! The quartet of RETURN TO INNOCENCE from Mladá Boleslav played a significant role on the Czech metal scene at the turn of the millennium, presenting its energetic, mystic death/doom metal with melodic vocals and multiple compositions on various festival and club shows all over the Czech Republic as well as abroad, such as in Austria, Germany, Slovakia or Ukraine. The band is presided over by the charismatic vocalist and guitarist Aleš “Ax” Cipra. The new album of RETURN TO INNOCENCE entitled “The Ring of Moon” is out now, released by MetalGate Records in jewel case format. It is available for purchase via the Metalgate e-shop, as well as in selected music stores.

LEVIATHAN

Jan 27th, 2014 | By | Category: Band

LEVIATHAN is a progressive metal band formed in Colorado in 1989 by guitarist/leader Ronnie Skeen, guitarist Steve Fugate, and vocalist Tom Braden; the original lineup was completed by drummer Ty Tammeus and bassist James Escobedo. Just before the group recorded its self-titled debut EP in 1991, Fugate left the group to be replaced by John Lutzow.

LEVIATHAN recorded its full-length debut in 1993 with new vocalist Jack Aragon; Deepest Secrets Beneath became a minor hit overseas, particularly in Japan. However, the group nearly fell apart afterwards; Skeen and Lutzow saw the remainder of the group defect, and moved to plug the holes with vocalist, Jeff Ward, bassist Derek Blake, and drummer Trevor Helfer. This lineup recorded Riddles, Questions, Poetry, and Outrage in 1996. This Album received outstanding reviews worldwide from the music press and landed the band a record deal with Century Media. The band continued to grow and expand the boundaries of metal and progressive rock. After the RQPO album, LEVIATHAN had clearly established themselves as real contenders in the progressive music genre with their top notch musicianship and song writing. In 1997 they performed at the Powermad festival in Baltimore, MD. This delighted progressive metal fans from all over the globe that had traveled thousands of miles to finally see them play. That same year they released their most progressive and daring album to date, Scoring the Chapters. This album was self-published, after the Band made the decision to leave Century Media due to internal conflicts. Musical exhaustion and frustration with record labels pushed the band to dissolve in 1998. In 2001 Guitarist John Lutzow reunited with bassist Derek Blake. Together they brought back to life a solo project that John had worked on in the nineties called “Braver Since Then.” BST began recording and releasing albums.

In 2007 BST needed to find a new drummer and was lucky enough to track down Trevor Helfer. This reconnect began the journey to the complete band reunion. Jeff Ward and Ron Skeen were convinced to embrace the project and prospect of reaching old fans and making a statement worldwide to new fans with fresh material. The Reunion shows were a great success. Video footage shows the ease and comfort the band has with each other and how rare it is to find a musical connection. Chemistry and enjoyment of playing are clear in the faces of each band member. Passion has always been at the core of LEVIATHAN. The live DVD/CD set displays this perfectly with a visual journey from the bands humble beginning. Any fan of the Leviathan or Progressive music in general will be amazed at the level of musicianship and technical ability that never left this band. The writing and emotion present in every note will satisfy even the most discerning listeners. Anyone looking for music that has depth, meaning and soul will be completely enthralled.

Hangatyr

Dec 20th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

HANGATYR was found in early 2006. Cold and nordic riffing, typical Thuringian melodies and German lyrics inspired by the mythology of the band members embosses the music. Until autumn 2007 HANGATYR was working on songs for their first demo CD which was self produced.

Some time later the German label Nocturnal Empire noticed and signed the band. But before the recordings for the first album could begin a new drummer had to be found. Michael joined the band and after a short settling time he was ready for the time in the studio. Finally in the end of February 2010 everything was ready: The debut album “Helwege” was released and achieved attention nationwide for the first time.

In the time after the release HANGATYR didn’t take a rest. Several shows followed and first ideas for new songs emerged. In April 2012 the Thuringians went in The Unholy Studio to record their second album “Elemente” together with producer Christo who had already worked with the band on “Helwege”. Unfortunately Marco had to limit his commitment for the band during the records and therefore Christo played the bass on „Elemente“. But Marco still is an important part of HANGATYR and will be present on stage together with rest of the guys in the future! The last fragments were brought together in February 2013 and the album could be handed to the mastering. No one less than Alexander Dietz (Heaven Shall Burn, Chemical Burn Studios) took over the task to give “Elemente” the last fine-tuning.  As HANGATYR wanted to have the full control “Elemente” will be released by the band itself for the first time.

Be prepared for a stormy album which shows HANGATYR in a matured but not less catchy way. Mystical Pagan Black Metal in it’s best form: hymnic, melodic as well as emotional!

Vyre

Nov 25th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Once upon a time in a galaxy far away…

VYRE formed after KG Cypher, Hedrykk and Zyan left their former band EIS after shattering anomalies within the bands social fabric. Tmax filled the empty place behind the low frequency cannonry and still with EIS’ Marlek on drums, the band recorded a demo which gained them a contract with Supreme Chaos Records.
During the negotiations, drummer Marlek blew himself out of the airlock and was replaced by hard-hitting semi-artificial rhythm machine Android.

Invigorated by recent events, the VYRE crew engaged in an elaborate songwriting process, merging the tristesse of space travel and a tale of epic proportions into a debut album so significant, it had to be split in parts like the best sci-fi stories in history.

“The Initial Frontier” parts I & II will see the light of day in late 2013, early 2014 respectively. A definite Must-Have for enthusiasts of sophisticated and ahead-of-it’s-time-sound like ARCTURUS, ULVER, MANES or DHG

DARK MAN SHADOW

Sep 24th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

DARK MAN SHADOW was founded by Sorroth (guitars & vocals) in 1998. Soon after that Samotha (keyboards, vocals) joined the band. A first demo called “Incarnation” was released in 2000 which earned a lot of positive feedback and first live shows followed. In 2001 the long awaited debut album “Tears of Hate” (Warner Chappell and Eknaton/SPV) was released. After some line-up changes DARK MAN SHADOW found Matze (NOCTE OBDUCTA) as a permanent drummer for their second album “The Shore Of Straying Souls“, which was released by the Portuguese label Dark Music Productions in south and eastern Europe. Unfortunately the label disappeared right after the release. Therefore “The Shore of Straying Souls” hasn’t got the attention it deserved, despite the excellent reviews it received. Also the planned tour couldn’t take place apart from some selected shows.

In 2004 DARK MAN SHADOW decided to take a longer break from the band. It took until 2008 when Sorroth and Samotha began to write new songs. The result is “Victims of Negligence”, which was recorded in the Empire Studios of Rolf Munkes in 2011. Matze completed the line-up again on the drums.

Musically the trio stays faithful to their roots without copying themselves. Again a raw but also powerful guitar meets overflowing dark keyboard-landscapes, which – together with the female vocals and the brutal blastbeats – become a unique mixture. In comparison to the album of 2003 “Victims of Negligence” combines the aesthetic of dark symphonic elements and the unpolished, archaic rawness of Black Metal in an even more exciting way. This combination of orchestral arrangements and furious metal elements offers the perfect background for the depth of the lyrics, where DARK MAN SHADOW deal with the deceitfulness and falseness which makes people literally lacerate each other.

Members:

Matze – Schlagzeug
Sorroth – Gitarre, Vocals
Samotha – Keyboards, Vocals

Tears of Hate (2001)
The Shore of Straying Souls (2003)

UNZUCHT

Aug 27th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Even without throwing superlatives around, the story of rock quartet UNZUCHT from German state Lower Saxony, that combines influences from Gothic, Industrial and Metal in their sound with extremely melodic vocals, can be called remarkable. Just last fall UNZUCHT set out on a trek with more than 40 shows – they played a tour with MONO INC., then a tour with Megaherz, then all Dark End Festivals 2012 and finally in 2013 the acclaimed co-headliner-tour “Darkness Kills” with their friends Lord Of The Lost in front of thousands of fans.

History: Not just from the web tv episodes of the band’s own youtube series “Das Gothic-Internat” (The gothic boarding school) can give an at times disturbing look behind the scenes. What is it with their own distinct language, that has already been enthusiastically picked up by their fans? Who or what are “Schrakk” and “Schnizzle”? Why is “Schrakk” already being carried around in button form on countless black bags all across Germany? Questions that can’t be answered without complex research in the history of Unzucht. It was around 2009 when De Clercq, UNZUCHT‘s guitarist and electro wizard, came up with a plan. With a subterfuge that is impossible to reconstruct, he lured the half-spanish singer Der Schulz, who was on the verge of moving back to his old home Galicia, to an unspecified island in the frisian Caribbean, which is since then known only as “La Isla Muerta”. This is where, for reasons unknown, Blaschke and Fuhrmann came into play. The island’s chronicle is full of loopholes about the events, but one thing is shure: First demos were recorded, the foundation for Unzucht was built. But why is the band’s webshop, where fans order t-shirts and tickets today, called “Caribbean Gothic”? And what exactly is it about this “gothic boarding school”? Questions, nothing but questions.

With their second album “Rosenkreuzer” ready to be unleashed, Germany’s darkest rockers are about to invade playlists once again. “Rosenkreuzer” – named after members of mystical secret societies – features 13 brand new UNZUCHT songs, 12 previously unreleased originals as well as a surprising  cover version of the spanish rock classic “Entre Dos Tierras” by Héroes Del Silencio.

While lyrically, heavy subjects such as perishability, pain and loss are being tackled, the music has also become much more melancholic than last year’s debut “Todsünde 8”. Clever electronic meets metal riffs and pounding beats – the dark and powerfull timbre of singer Der Schulz adding layers on top.

Once again produced by UNZUCHT themselves, all songs have been recorded and mixed at Institut für Wohlklangforschung in Hannover with Willi Dammeier (Apoptygma Berzerk, Dimmu Borgir).

Members:

Daniel “Der Schulz” Schulz – Vocals
Daniel De Clercq – Guitar, Vocals, Electronicts

CTULU

Aug 13th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Atmospheric and heavy, catchy but also complex: All of this applies to CTULU since their foundation in 2004. Back then brought to life by lead guitarist Mathias Junge, the band from Delmenhorst developed constantly since their demo “Zinz Der Zeit”. “Freie Geister” (2008, Northfire Records) and its successor “Sarkomand” (2011, Godeater Records) were other milestones the band has set in their own history. CTULU have also played several gigs in the past with highlights like the Ragnarök Festival in Rieden, Oberpfalz (2010) and the release show for “Sarkomand” at Ragnarök Festival (2011) as well as the the show at Czech Metal Feast (2013). Besides several club shows, this festival appearances speak for their excellent live quality.

Several Line-up changes in the past couldn’t stop CTULU and today the quartet is stronger than ever. “Seelenspiegelsplitter” is the proof of a development at whose end is an album which underlines and tightens their status in the Northern German metal scene. Fast Extreme Metal in the style of Swedish Black Metal which is influenced by a lot of different parts of many Rock and Metal areas – a promise for variety. Catchiness and atmosphere combined. Focused on the guitars, CTULU are ready to capture the listener easily and nothing is more accurate as the bands own description “Seastorming Extreme Metal”. Now they have found the right label with Black Blood Records and therefore “Seelenspiegelsplitter“is ready to be released!

DESOLATION

Aug 7th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Who can provide orientation in times when values lose their meaning, when the the world as we know it is turned inside out, earthly and clerical leaders lose their authority, religions, political parties and world-views are discarded faster than you can spell “ideology”? DESOLATION give their answer: Nobody!

Consequently, the band from Hannover entitled their third album “Desoriented”, punning both on the band’s name and the German tendency to misspell English words. If the term “concept album” hadn’t come out of fashion since the late ‘70s, this album would be entitled to it, since the idea of “disorientation” is the central theme of all ten songs. Loss of direction and the feelings people have to face when they don’t know what tomorrow may have in store for them are the driving force and the lyrical parentheses of the album. The mother of god, the lamb, which takes away the sins of the world? It isn’t that easy nowadays (“Ave Maria”, “Agnus Dei”). Instead of offering salvation, the “Sainthood Of The Fallen” moves in a brute march on the last bastions of sense and order. “Dorothy”, who would only have had to knock her heels together in order to escape the chaotic world of Oz and return home to Kansas, takes her dying breath in a shabby no-tell motel. Shamed be he who thinks ill of it. Not even “L’Auberge d’Esolation” offers any refuge. Quite the contrary: In the final moments everybody is alone.

In opposition to the chaos of the evoked apocalypse stands the mathematical concept of the arrangements. DESOLATION do not leave anything to chance, which makes the music more accessible in comparison to the more experimental approach of the previous album. The wall of guitars always finds its counterpoint in the symphonic keyboards, which lends an ominous, dark and dramatic atmosphere to the music. At the same time, the use of instruments is never an end in itself, cheap showmanship isn’t what the Hanover six-piece is in business for. The acoustic ornaments, the infatuation with technicalities which many Prog Metal bands mistake for virtuosity are missing completely. Instead, up-tempo songs like the title track or “On Bloodshed” relentlessly pursue the acuteness of feelings in the face of lost virtues. But the best example is “Home Is Where The Heart Is”: The opener is the musical essence of the complete album and when keyboards, vocals and guitars paint an apocalyptical scenery, the instruments and voices of the singers push on to a climax where the listeners know that they cannot expect order, but only pain, senselessness and despair. Here the different opposites of the chorals, the force of the guitars and the solemn keyboards merge into a highly energetic amalgam.

With “Desoriented,” DESOLATION dive into a dark maelstrom from which you cannot escape and which leads you into the abyss of your own soul. “Where do you go from here?”

BURNING SHADOWS

Jul 4th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

BURNING SHADOWS formed over a decade ago with the intent of forging a decidedly epic brand of traditional metal that seemed to be largely absent from both their hometown of Washington, DC and the global metal scene.  Seeking to carry the torch of the genre’s greats, namely IRON MAIDEN and JUDAS PRIEST, while also capturing the adventurous spirit of bands such as BLIND GUARDIAN, RHAPSODY OF FIRE, and GAMMA RAY, the band has evolved into a potent mixture of traditional metal and European power metal that is at once high-energy, melodically catchy, and sonically majestic.

It is this quest for adventure that has culminated in the second full-length album by BURNING SHADOWS, “Gather, Darkness!”, named after and inspired by the seminal science fiction novel by legendary author Fritz Leiber.  Having always possessed a lyrical bent deeply rooted in fantasy and the otherworldly, the record comes in the form of a concept album comprised of eleven tracks divided into four distinct, tightly woven sections that unfold the story of “Gather, Darkness!”

“Gather, Darkness!” opens with a full orchestral Overture, immediately plunges into the twisted world of the Hierarchy in A Thousand Lies, sows the seeds of rebellion in “To Ruin & Divide”, and ensures victory in “Breaking the Sanctuary”. From the ominous grandeur of “Hymn to Sathanas” to the gut-wrenching, bombastic climax of “The Infamous Dawn,” “Gather, Darkness!” traverses a world fraught with chaos and unrest via a soundtrack of tight harmonies, haunting vocals, and a thunderous rhythm section, invoking at times feelings of fear, wonder, despair, wrath and even hope.

MONO INC.

Jul 1st, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Monomania, a term from the psychiatric nosology of the early 19th Century, was once (2003) the template for naming the Hamburger Rock-Band MONO INC. and means as much as delusional individual, in contrast to the complete madness.

10 years later, in 2013, MONO INC. open another chapter of their creativity! Mean? Joachim Witt and MONO INC. mastermind Martin Engler became close friends since Witt’s latest album and since then they celebrate the “Club Of Living Poets” every week. Joachim benefits from the fact that Martin is an excellent cook – Witt can do nothing on the stove, but he delights in fine dining.

During the meetings of the “Club Of Living Poets” abstruse ideas emerged. One of them was to make a common number (not surprising at first sight), but as the question arose of who should sing which language, they did not come to each other at first. But then as Witt texted an English verse and Martin did a german chorus the convolutions of the two were really active. The love to music has connected the two poles!

The result is a song in which Martin, inspired by Joachim, kept the German chorus, whereupon Joachim contributed a purely German verse. The result is titled “Kein Weg Zu Weit” and “shall encourage people” , the MONO INC.-singer and Witt unison.

Worn by this inspiration other songs in german language arose almost like in flight, what the band is very pleased with. “Standstill would be a creative dead for us, which is why we have taken this step and why we are eager to showcase the new facet to the fans.”

The Hamburg Rock-Band succeeds with “Nimmermehr” the true feat of re-inventing themselves, to stay true to their sound and yet bring a new MONO INC. dimension to the market – Lyric, poetry, great melodies and immediately in the ear.

One year after their Top-10-Album “After The War” MONO INC. present sovereign with new and established influences and storm with a strong first harbingers inexorably on their way to the monomaniac world domination.

HALLIG

Jun 10th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

HALLIG was formed in 2010. Their first output “13 Keys to Lunacy” is a fascinating mixture of fast and melodic Black Metal, evoking images of the depths of dark water, madness and transcendence, adorned with nordic melodies. Harsh screams can be found as well as striking clean vocals.Raging guitars lead into deceptive silence just to rise up again and unleash the next attack. Surprising solos and acoustic melodies give “13 Keys to Lunacy” a special note. The album gets its distinct pulse from the drummer’s precise work. Something big is growing here…

“Nichts als Stille” and “Reinvigoration” give a good impression of what’s the album about.

NIGHT OF THE WORLD

Jun 4th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

The Polish Black Metal scene is one of the strongest this days. Another band in the periphery of the highly talented Let The World Burn cirle (f.e. FURIA     and MASSEMORD) is NIGHT OF THE WORLD. An overwhelming beast, which demonstrates the relentless of the horror, which hunts the believers as well as the disbelievers. Simply: The desintegrativ might of negativity!

NIGHT OF THE WORLD was impulsively formed during winter 2011 by AM, ML & Ntr. After that everything went really fast. The trio entrenched themselves in the april of the same year in an unknown rehearsal-room in the northern Pomerania to start working on „Drive The Knife Deeper“. The result was six song in a few days, which were     recorded live and impress with pure energy.

Who now associates less than thirty minutes with a short album will change his mind after this blasting storm of darkness, which strikes precisely and creates fantastic leads!

STREAMS OF BLOOD

Jun 4th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

STREAMS OF BLOOD was formed by Thymos (Ex-Darkened Nocturn Slaughtercult, Ex-Sargwart, Ex-Engraved) and Tavor (Ex-Engraved) in 2009.

During the suicidal summer 2009 the Band recorded the first Mini-CD “Antilife”. Torturer (Mor Dagor, Belphegor) recorded the drums.
In the cold and frosty winter of 2010 Blood Hammer joined the band.

Now with Blood Hammer STREAMS OF BLOOD entered the studio and recorded the first full length CD called “The Descend To The Source Of Disorder” which was released in September 2011 through Articaz and Ketzer Records. “The Descent To The Source Of Disorder” symbolizes the abyss of the human sanity overlooking the negative vision of the world view. The deep depression of the negative energy and misanthropy is paired with the aversion for the modern world order. The different views and mixtures are reflected in the music. Atmospheric elements with sick old school riffs, fast blasting Drums and aggressive vocals, impelling and hypnotizing.

In February 2013 the new Album “Ultimate Destination” was released through Folter Records. The central theme of this record is the escape from our Inside. The fight against Life and Death. The Songs are more brutal and faster than the old stuff.

Thymos – Guitars and Vocals

May 31st, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Two years after their last album F.O.B., the warmashine from Tábor, strikes back with their brandnew album “Reap What You Sow”! The band, who started as a Death/Thrash Metal act, developed on the previous records towards a more Modern Metal sound. On “Reap What You Sow” the band continues to experiment with Metalcore and melodic vocals which are influenced by Modern Metal-trends from overseas. With frontman Mára the band has definitely found a beast of a singer who now shows his talent again. “Reap What You Sow” is the darkest album of F.O.B. so far, featuring eight-string guitars, as well as an apocalyptic narrative about a cataclysm caused by a giant flood that destroys mankind for its arrogant imposition of its laws upon nature.  You can thus look forward to ten songs, as forceful as the divine commandments, of which the brilliant single “Of a Martyr”, which has already been in circulation for some time, was the first proof!

The band from the mid-1990s has been for a long time one of those who built the reputation of the quality of the Czech extreme sound. As the new vocalist  Mára joined F.O.B. in 2008 the band started to add more Modern Metal influences to their sound. The first result was “The Dice…” (2008). Their fourth album “Tommorow’s Fires” (2011) manifested their new direction. Also in 2011 new guitarist Profesor joined the band. “Reap What You Sow” is the outcome of further experiments and modernisations. It is the first time F.O.B. worked with two guitarists, the new one being Dan Mazanec (GENUINE RELIEF). The album was mixed and mastered by Leonid Shipelik (Post Organic Records, Russia). Besides the albums the band is well known for their energetic live show. To sum it up: F.O.B. Is a guarantor for quality!

INFINIGHT

May 30th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Music
You could either try to describe INFINIGHT‘s music as modern US-style powermetal with low tuned, heavy Guitars, savage doublebass Attacks and powerful, yet melodic Vocals or simply call it “pure hard’n’heavy”. Either way, the band has firmly established themselves as an influential part of the region’s metal Community, building up an Army of loyal Followers over the Years. Bands such as Nevermore, Iced Earth or Brainstorm are often cited in Reviews when trying to describe their Music, yet the Band has managed to find their own Style. Critics unanimously praise INFINIGHT‘s unique Trademarks such as great melodic Arcs, mighty Choruses that will stick to your Ears, all held together by precise Drumming and powerful bass Guitars and topped off with flawlessly executed complex vocal Arrangements. The second  album “Like Puppets”, eagerly awaited by Fans, was released in 2010 to delighted reactions by Fans and critics alike, with many Reviews again comparing the album to the likes of Nevermore, Queensrÿche or Iced Earth. Just like the first album “Sea of knowledge” from 2005, “Like Puppets” demonstrates INFINIGHT‘s diversity and wealth of ideas in more than one Hour of Running Time.

Biography:

INFINIGHT was founded in 2001 and the past Years have been a Roller Coaster of Experiences for the Band. After playing the usual Clubs and smaller venues InfiNight supported Freedom Call in 2003. After that, several local and national Shows with Bands such as Adorned Brood and Nocturnal Rites (SWE) followed in 2005 and 2006. In 2005 INFINIGHT were voted “Newcomer of the Year” by a German Radio station. 2006 saw them decimating their competition in the “Wacken Metal Battle”, resulting in a Gig at the legendary Wacken Open Air alongside Bands like Motörhead, Nevermore, Six feet under and the Scorpions. This Gig garnered them a lot of international attention and Reviews. In 2007 INFINIGHT headlined the U&D- Festival in Mössingen, playing to some 2500 excited Fans. This required Singer Martin Klein to be flown in from New York. In 2008 the Band decided to focus more on writing Songs for the second Album, yet still played a support show for Children of Bodom – to an Audience of more than 1500 enthusiastic black metal Fans nonetheless, which INFINIGHT managed to win over despite a wide gap to the musical Style of the Headliner. In 2009 INFINIGHT began the Production of their second Album “Like Puppets”. Again the Band, besides recording, took the Helm at editing and graphic production, too. “Like Puppets” was released in February 2010 at the Metal Carnival in front of 500 Fans and has since been gathering nothing but positive Reviews. In 2011 the label 7us Media Group re-released the Album. In 2011 and 2012 more Concerts followed, headlining various Open Air Festivals as well as support for none other than the German Metallers of Blind Guardian.

Fir Bolg

Apr 25th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Solo-artist Dagoth founded FIR BOLG back in 2006 to create his own vision of Celtic Black Metal. In the same year the Frenchman, who does the vocals, guitar and bass started together with the support of session musicians to work on his first four-song demo. In the summer of 2008 the solo project’s first MCD “Paganism” was released by himself in an edition of 500 exemplars. In 2009 the German underground label Schwarzdorn Productions became aware of FIR BOLG and signed the project quickly.

FIR BOLG started to work on the first full-length album in 2011. Together with his longtime session drummer Abaddon, Dagoth recorded “Towards Ancestral Lands” in different international studios. The mixing was done by Damien Rainaud (Omen Recording) in Los Angeles. The album was mastered by Markus Stock (Empyrium, The Vision Bleak) at the Klangschmiede Studio E in Germany. “Towards Ancestral Lands” impresses with a powerful production, fast Black Metal, stormy leads and wonderful epic moments. Dagoths fondness for Celtic music becomes manifest in the acoustic parts which are responsible for atmospheric interludes. Follow FIR BOLG on a stormy but also atmospheric as well as passionate journey into the Celtic mythology.

Wer also auf Pagan/Black Metal steht und die alten Zeiten von Immortal oder Satyricon vermisst, sollte dem Franzosen eine Chance geben.” – (12 von 15, Soundcheck Platz 12, Legacy #85)

Da wir aber zum einen von IMMORTAL im Schnitt nur noch alle fünf Jahre neues Material serviert bekommen, und daneben auch die Übrigen Zutaten FIR BOLGs zu einem schmackhaften Norweger-Allerlei aus Frankreich verrührt wurden, kann ich als alter Genrefreak nicht umhin, sehr wohlwollende acht Zähler zu geben.” – (8 von 10,Soundcheck Platz 8,  Powermetal.de)

Ein packendes Debüt, das sicherlich nachdrücklich für Aufsehen sorgen wird.” – (8 von 10, Burnyourears.de)

das Album hat eine starke Intensität, der man sich als Fan des Genres kaum entziehen kann.” – (7,5 von 10, Metal4.de)

Furthermore, the overtly melodic composition style and attempts at diverse sounds within a niche genre mark Fir Bolg as a name to watch, despite flaws.” – (7 von 10, Destructive Music)

ABSTRACT ESSENCE

Apr 25th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Abstract Essence from Vsetín are now established as an indisputable fixture of the Czech metal scene. They have came to fame especially thanks to their elusive cocktail of metal genres, their precise and unique playing style and also their eccentric singer, with his vast range of plentiful vocal expressions.

Over the nine years of the band’s existence, the band played over 130 concerts in the Czech Republic and abroad, including slots at prestigious festivals such as Brutal Assault, Basinfire Fest or Metalgate Czech Death Fest.

The band’s recorded CDs have regularly been rated album of the year by not only several reviewers but also by fans.

Abstract Essence spent 2012 mainly in the studio, where they gave birth to their third regular album “Love Enough”. In a further bold shift forward the band have produced a mature, conceptual and clever album about the life of two people, a man and a woman, from childhood up to the definitive shattering of their illusions and lack of fulfilment in life, followed inevitably by their death. Musically the album offers an experimental, explosive blend which cannot easily be categorised into any regular metal sub-genre. It features catchy choruses and melodies, elsewhere frenzied guitar and keyboard solos with a purposefully retro sound, interesting composition structures and naturally an endless range of screams and vocal expressions, to the extent that you will find it hard to believe that they come from the throat of just one man.
The music of Abstract Essence exuberates with a creative audacity, but without their ambition overreaching itself and degenerating into an inability to maintain the form and content at an appropriately high standard. On the contrary, we have no qualms in asserting that the group’s work towers above the average mass. Both musically and lyrically the album is characterised by a strong, wild and also existential atmosphere.

MINORITY SOUND

Apr 24th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

MINORITY SOUND was founded in 2007 by Otus and Gulesh, who are members of established bands like SEED GRINDER, RETURN TO INNOCENCE and the already split up RITES OF THE UNDEATH. It started as a sideproject but after some line up changes MINORITY SOUND became stabilized by the members Simon (Drums) and Petr (Bass). In 2010 the band released their first album “Analysis” which received a lot of positive feedback. It was followed by some gigs and tours in the Czech Republic, Germany and Poland, as well as some festival shows at Brutal Assault, Apocalyptic Form Of Death and the Czech Death Fest.

However the band wasn’t really happy with the overall sound. It lacked something new, something really creative.So they dug even deeper into the harmonies, sound, concept and overall feeling and the outcome is their second album “The Explorer”. The album was mixed by the legendary Rom di Prisco. Heavier, yet clean and punchy sound, depressive, yet optimistic, “The Explorer” has everything that a metal record needs and much more!

SECRET OF DARKNESS

Apr 24th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

SECRET OF DARKNESS was founded back in 2005 and played their first shows only as an instrumental band because they didn’t have a vocalist that time. After a long search Vojta (Vocals) and Tomáš Š. (Bass) joined the band. In 2008 SECRET OF DARKNESS released their first EP called “…And The Dark Begins”, containing six tracks of melodic dark-doom metal, followd by several shows with bands like HOLLENTHON or FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE. Between 2009 and 2010 there were again some line up changes. In 2010 the well-known Czech label Metalgate Productions signed SECRET OF DARKNESS and released their debutalbum “(In)Humanity”.

“(In)Humanity” contains 10 tracks of energetic yet melodic blackened death metal and will be now released outside of the Czech Republic.

Currently SECRET OF DARKNESS are working on new songs and a video-clip.

LIVEEVIL

Apr 24th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

The poisonous thorn named LIVEEVIL from Hranice and Ostrava has been firmly entrenched under the skin of the Czech metal scene since 2003 when the band was formed by Petr Staněk, former vocalist and guitarist of one of the Czech all-time greats SILENT STREAM OF GODLESS ELEGY.

In their music, LIVEEVIL mix electronic samples with metal, achieving however a unique sound, which makes them clearly distinguishable from bands playing similar music. Music-wise, the main traits are straightforward guitar riffs combined with melodic keyboard hymns that result in incredibly catchy compositions. In one moment you find yourself in a dark and dreary world, while in the next you are swept away by almost disco-like rhythms; and add to that the frontman’s charismatic vocals that run across multiple styles, from growls to deep clear vocals. Reviewers tend to compare LIVEEVIL to PAIN or DEATHSTARS, but rest assured, the band in question stands firmly on its own legs.

Liveevil performed on stage alongside DARK TRANQUILLITY, SUFFOCATION and many moe; their festival appearances include metalgate czech death fest, noc plná hvězd, psyché fest, beseda u bigbítu, modern inquisition experiment, fullmoon, ludkovická plečka.

SHRIKE

Apr 24th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

The name SHRIKE is inspired by a literary character of Dan Simmons “The Hyperion Cantos”. In the story Shrike is a capricious creature, which influences his surroundings but at the same time isn’t affected by others.

The band SHRIKE was founded in May 2006 by Use, Jul und Moe. In June of the same year the band released their first album “Meine Wucherung” after only seven rehearsals. In the end of 2009 the band found a new permanent member in the guitarist Xaver. Since 2011 bassist Fabi (former member of NATURAL BORN GRINDERS) brings a fresh wind, ideas and creativity into the band. Now SHRIKE are ready with their second album “Hinab in die vertraute Fremdheit” which will be released in June 2013. SHRIKE distances themselves from every kind of extreme ideology and inhuman believes (like racism, violence etc.). Black Metal is neither war nor an propaganda instrument. Black Metal changes and strengthens feelings, emotions and the subjective perception of the inner and outer world. This is what SHRIKE stands for and they don’t want to be changed. But of course the band is inspired by other artists like PINK FLOYD, SHINING, MAYHEM, MY DYING BRIDE or NOCTE OBDUCTA.

Members:

Uwe – Vocals
Jul – Guitar
Xaver – Guitar
Fabi – Bass
Moe – Drums

TERMINAL PROSPECT

Feb 21st, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Terminal-Prospect-Band2013TERMINAL PROSPECT was originally formed in 2005 by Kristian Norelius and Jussi Niiranen, with the concept to mix old school thrash metal with modern melodic death metal. However, it wasn’t that big until ex-DOGMA-drummer and producer Sebastian Rojas joined the band in 2006 that things started to take shape.

The band name describes what the band is all about; the failing human race and the results of thousands of years of rape on the environment and each other. Passion and misery.

In early 2008 the result of the bands efforts was released: „Absence of Light“. It was recorded and produced in Punto Decibel Studios by Sebastian Rojas and mastered by Björn Engelman at Cutting Room Studios. It is a combi- nation of old school metal and modern ingredients from the present.

Im April 2012 the EP „Face the Horror“  contained the tracks „Redefine Existence“ and „Arise the Masses“ which will also be a part of the upcoming full length album „Redefine Existence“.
TERMINAL PROSPECT: Heavy, melodic thrash metal riffs combined with tasty, classic rhythms and harmonies, sure to make you bang your head!

Norse

Feb 20th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

NORSE has forged a distinguished place in the Australian extreme metal scene drawing on the unique talents of guitarist and vocalist Treelo Herrington and drummer Robin “Frog” Stone (THE AMENTA).

In 2006, NORSE released their debut EP, “The Unrelenting”. This EP launched a ground swell of support from metal audiences everywhere. Even though NORSE was committed to extensive touring in Australia at this time they continued to experiment with new sounds that integrated the technical elements of both black and death metal. This new work pulled them back into the studio in 2008 where fifteen months of hibernation created NORSE’s debut full-length album, !Hellstorm!. This substantial work was recorded and mixed with Erik Miehs (THE AMENTA) and mastered by Reece Tunbridge at Benchmark Mastering. Voltage media has described “Hellstorm” as an “album that bluntly underlines the talent of the quartet.

The winter of 2011 saw the duo hit the studio once again to begin recording their sophomore effort, “All is Mist and Fog”.

THORNGOTH

Feb 7th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

THORNGOTH, which means “the horned foe” in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Eldar language, was founded 2003 in Bad Tölz, Germany. Since the very first days the band has played its very own style of Black Metal. In 2005 the first demo “Sigillum”was released which provided the basis for the bands further carer.

After the release of “Thelema of Destruction” via Northern Silence Productions THORNGOTH left their marks in the German Black Metal scene with their two following albums “Rauchnacht” and “Leere”. Both albums were released via Folter Records and showed the high quality of the band which was appreciated from the fans as well as the press. After many gigs the show at the Under The Black Sun Festival in 2009 was a milestone for THORNGOTH.

Now after many years of hard work and another improvement of the bands own sound the album “SCHWARZ-KARG-KALT” is finished. On the basis of Black Metal in their own style  THORNGOTH have given more and more space for Death and Doom Metal influences. The result shows that the potential of the band isn’t exhausted for a long time yet and that their passion develops their style more and more. “SCHWARZ-KARG-KALT” is characterized by a deep atmosphere and many small details which make the listening interesting over the full length of the time. It’s definitely the most ambitious album in the carreer of THORNGOTH so far.

CREMATION

Jan 31st, 2013 | By | Category: Band

CREMATION was found back in 1992 and has always been an uncommercial Death Metal band! The guys from  Wallis played dozens of concerts in their home country until they released their first full-length album “Ignis” in 1999. This was followed by many support gigs for international bands which rose the motivation for their second album “Grotesque Humanity” (2002). After some changes in the line up CREMATION found the optimal crew for their future. They celebrated their 15 years anniversary back in 2007 with their first live DVD “Burn The Dead”. Until today CREMATION played many gigs and festival shows with bands like TESTAMENT, CEPHALIC CARNAGE, DYNING FETUS, GRAVE and a lot more in their home country as well as abroad.

Now in 2012 CREMATION didn’t lose their passion for well played Death Metal. Their third album is entitled “Rise of The Phoenix” and will now be released. Eleven songs of brutal, technical Death Metal, garnished by a fine feeling for details.

Malrun

Jan 31st, 2013 | By | Category: Allgemein

On “The Empty Frame”, the succeeding album to the critically acclaimed debut “Beauty in Chaos” (2010), Danish MALRUN has found the perfect combination of catchy rock melodies and energetic, groovy metal.

“The Empty Frame” was released in Europe 5th March 2012 via Target/Mighty Music and has already proven to be one the most promising new melodic metal albums in 2012. Musically, MALRUN navigates in a crossbreed of hard hitting metal, groovy riffs and melodic rock with a remarkably fresh and modern edge. The music thus targets both the broad mainstream audience as well as the metal environment. “The Empty Frame” is produced, mixed and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat, Fear My Thoughts, Amaranthe).

The lyrical themes on “The Empty Frame” focus mainly on life changing events and how random circumstances and coincidences in life lead to great upheavals, loss, sadness, disillusion but also provide new opportunities and possibilities of filling out the empty frame – a symbol of life yet to be lived. And as always MALRUN’s lyrical universe is spiced with little pieces of everyday life, irony, sarcasm, humour and sex.

Beside receiving great press feedback, MALRUN also went forward on the live sector in 2012. Not only did they perform festival gigs (e.g. on Rockharz Open Air) but also played three very successful tours supporting DIE APOKALYPTISCHEN REITER, EMIL BULLS and ENGEL.

In 2013, MALRUN want to work on their “The Empty Frame” follow-up which is expected to be released in 2014.

SHAPE MY CLARITY

Jan 25th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Shape-My-Clarity-BandThe five musicians of SHAPE MY CLARITY are living their concept of Neon Metal within their music and their live show.
With their extraordinary black light show SHAPE MY CLARITY stand out from the crowd of metal shows with pyro effects.

SHAPE MY CLARITY was founded in Cologne in the summer of 2009, in november of the same year they already released their first self-produced five-track-EP “Galvanizer”, in october the second EP “Black Ink”.

The band could certainly made their mark in the local metal scene  and played about 50 gigs so far. They have a solid fanbase and played a support show for canadian band PROTEST THE HERO. SHAPE MY CLARTIY are influenced from bands like IN FLAMESASKING ALEXANDRIA, FUNERAL FOR A FRIENDSEVENDUSTAUGUST BURNS RED and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE.

At the same time SHAPE MY CLARITY want to seperate themselves  from their idols with the Neon Metal and especially with their new album “Chameleon Mirror”: They establish a musical and lyrical alternative to the normal stuff heard in the metal scene.
Their first Full-Length is no real concept album, but deals with the topic “What’s right, what’s wrong. Do I adapt to society or do I remain individual?”

TRINITY SITE

Jan 18th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

Trinity-Site-Band2012The band TRINITY SITE was founded in the early days of 2009 after the split of FULLTANKED (Metal-Cover) by Jochen Rau (Guitar/Voc) and Andreas Rau (Drums). In a short space of time their former bandmate Stefan Mahr (Guitar) joined TRINITY SITE. The band was completed on the bass guitar after the recruitment of Sascha Born, the head of BALROC.
2010 was full of songwriting, recording, promotion and of course the band successfully played their first live gigs.

“Gloriously melodic but definitely not for sissies” – this is probably the best description of TRINITY SITEs music. The franconian band around guitarist and mastermind Jochen Rau and the musicians Max Ruck (vocals), Stefan Mahr (guitar), Sascha Born (Bass) and Andreas Rau (drums), however, describe their music simply as an “aggressive self-therapy”.

After promo shots and first appearances in 2010 the band convinced with their style: heavily influenced by melodic death-metal, they could quickly draw attention to themselves within the scene. TRINITY SITE achieved a direct nomination for the german final round of the Wacken Open Air Metal Battle and their song “Similar To Nothing” was published on Legacy sampler #71.

In 2011 TRINITY SITE played along with bands like SEPULTURA, CRIPPER, LEGION OF THE DAMNED and BENEDICTION. At the very beginning of 2012 the band started to self-record their first EP called “Ex Inferis”, which was mastered during summer 2012 by Dan Swanö.

Indomite

Jan 16th, 2013 | By | Category: Band

INDOMITE started in early 2009, from a group of musicians unfamiliar with each other, gathered by the idea of playing a simple yet powerful metal inspired on epic themes. Releasing one digital demo and playing at local bars and small theaters, the band started changing its style in favor of a more elaborated approach to the musical writing, achieved thanks to the members getting to know each other musically.

With 2010 came a period where not only the band’s music started changing, but also the ideas behind it, changing its lyrical content to lifeinspired stories and thoughts. This was a time for sustained musical production, and reinvention of the project. This creative year bore fruit in the form of a successful 2011, with the release of “Espejo y Realidad” INDOMITEs second demo tape, delivering a speedy Power/Heavy combination.
That paved the way for the band to make its way into some of the most important local metal festivals, and receiving very positive reviews from several countries around the globe. This year finished off with the band leaving its Heavy metal background in favor of a more progressive writing style, that led up to INDOMITEs current sound.

As a new productive cycle came to an end. The band enters the studio in mid 2012 to record its debut album, named “Theater of Time, with a wider musical pallet, aiming to deliver a more profound experience to those who enjoy its music

Swedish metaller STERBHAUS decided to turn their five-man group into a four man group, meaning Marcus will also be responsible for the vocals from now on. These changings led to a lot of enthusiasm which STERBHAUS comments on:

“What we are going to face in near future is just insane. You may follow our sessions at the Abyss studio at our blog. However, our band virtually is to be born again which makes it nearly impossible to show you everything of what is going on. When everything is ordered we’ll clean up from behind. And then we’ll present to you a new band with an old name: STERBHAUS.“
