Singular, unique sounding West Coast metal band VHOL have completed work on their new album “Deeper Than Sky”.
Following their acclaimed self-titled debut from 2013, “Deeper Than Sky” sees the VHOL collective of vocalist Mike Scheidt (YOB), guitarist John Cobbett (Hammers Of Misfortune/ex-Ludicra), bassist Sigrid Sheie (Hammers Of Misfortune/ex-Amber Asylum), and drummer Aesop Dekker (Agalloch/Worm Ouroboros/ex-Ludicra) create a psychedelic speed/prog/trad metal album that takes the band’s sonic voraciousness to a more exciting and creative realm. Recorded and mixed in The Bay Area’s Light Rail Studios in a more traditional old-school manner, “Deeper Than Sky” sees VHOL deliver a warmer, fuller,…

Dutch death rock luminary GOLD have completed work on their new album “No Image” which is their sophomore follow-up to their 2012 debut LP “Interbellum” (released by the band’s European label Ván Records).
Conceived in 2011 by guitarist Thomas Sciarone (ex-The Devil’s Blood) and vocalist Milena Eva, “No Image” creates a new… image for GOLD with this new artistic expression of theirs that goes much beyond the promise laid down with their debut. Embracing even more the roots of dark/death rock, noisy loud indie-rock, experimental music, and post punk respectively, “No Image” is a rawer, heavier, and much darker and…

The CD version of the new INDESINENCE album “III” is now available to order and ready to ship, several weeks prior to its official release date. The new album from one of the most prominent (and vastly underrated/under appreciated) doom/death metal bands to come out of the UK in the last decade sees INDESINENCE deliver their most crushing and massive album to date. Proof once again that there is no band in doom quite like them.
Seminal UK death metal band CRUCIAMENTUM have completed work on their much-anticipated debut full-length album “Charnel Passages”.
Ever since the band’s inception in 2008, with their “Convocation Of Crawling Chaos” demo (considered one of the best demos in modern day death metal), their split 7” EP with Vasaeleth, and their “Engulfed In Desolation” EP defining their repertoire, CRUCIAMENTUM were already being recognized as one of the most prominent present day death metal bands. With only these select releases amongst their arsenal, CRUCIAMENTUM would already play notable metal festivals such as Maryland Deathfest, Chaos In Tejas, Martyrdoom, and Rites Of Darkness…

Philadelphia, PA death metal band PISSGRAVE have completed work on their debut album “Suicide Euphoria”.
Following their infamous self-titled sold out demo which was released solely on cassette format via Graceless Recordings, PISSGRAVE’s unique style of raw violent buzzing death metal created a decent amount of awareness for the band, that alongside the band making an impression with their crushing live show (especially during their last U.S. mini-tour with DEAD CONGREGATION last fall) displaying their singular death metal vision.
With “Suicide Euphoria”, PISSGRAVE have created a swarming, skillfully played, yet primitive brutal death metal opus of pure darkness and depravity…
UK death/doom metal luminaries INDESINENCE have finished work on their massive third album, aptly titled “III”.
For nearly 15 years, INDESINENCE have been one of the most prominent death/doom metal bands to hail from the UK. The band who have carried tradition onwards and forged along with the torch passed on by the “Peaceville Three” (that being a reference to the very early ‘90s glory days of Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, and Anathema) may not have been the most prolific throughout their career, as some of their peers might have been, but INDESINENCE were never a band to oversaturate…
