THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION - New Album Announcement - 'Memoirs Of A Rat Queen'
Australian psychedelic rock and roll occultists THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION have completed the recording sessions for their forthcoming fourth full-length, “Memoirs Of A Rat Queen”. The album, tracked by bassist Jaytanic Ritual and The Pet Food Factory in Marrkville, Sydney, will be the band’s first for Cruz Del Sur Music and will see the light of day this September.
“It took a while longer than we originally anticipated, which is what we should have expected,” says guitarist Inverted CruciFox. “We try to include a lot of small details that reward headphone-wearing listeners who use our records to travel to alternate dimensions. There has to be enough fuel to accommodate their journey.”
Accordingly, the band’s blend of progressive, metal and space rock will be on full display on their new album, sure to please followers of the band. “It feels a bit different, yet a natural progression, which was the aim,” says CruciFox. “I feel like we have paid our sonic respects to QUEEN, MOTÖRHEAD, T-REX and many others.”
Since The Pet Food Factory is run by Ritual, there is a certain sense of familiarity with the studio’s confines. CruciFox says that other underground acts in Sydney often benefit from “residual magicks leftover by [vocalist] The Imperial Priestesses’ occasional presence there.” Therefore, it is little surprise the rest of THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION takes cues from their imitable frontwoman.
“There are few specific recollections of the process,” notes CruciFox. “We simply present at the studio and swiftly fall under the thrall of the Imperial Priestess who conducts the music through us via mind control. There is a feeling of disorientation and euphoria followed by shock that 12 months has passed and the album is complete.”
With “Memoirs Of A Rat Queen” now in the bag, all CruciFox and his THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION bandmates can do is bide their time until it’s unleashed upon the unwitting metal masses. “We are awaiting the response of the ancient ones — a centuries-old council of mystic faeries who determine which of the new songs shall be added to the set. It’s an unconventional approach, but we stand by our methods.”

ACID REIGN - UK Thrashers sign with Dissonance Productions
Its been a while but they’re back with arguably their finest album to date. ACID REIGN will release their third full-length on Dissonance Productions this September.
Vocalist Howard Smith had this to say: “For our first album in 29 years it was vitally important that we find the right home and I feel we have. From the very first contact it was obvious that the Dissonance team not only had an overwhelming enthusiasm for what we have recorded but the intelligence and infrastructure to deliver. Many involved are the same people I dealt with when curating The Apple Core Archives in 2014 which was a hassle free experience, so we are going to release a four disc retrospective Acid Reign Anthology package after the new album comes out cos I found some more old stuff and our two singles need a CD home. Who knows you may even see some vinyl reissues too! We cannot wait to unleash this beast and hit the road in support of it, once it’s out it will be two years since we started writing and a year since we recorded it. No one is as keen as us for you all to hear the results. Over the next few months we’ll be drip feeding you all information, we have so many plans for really cool things that we think you are all going to love. Stay tuned.”
Label head honcho Steve Beatty: Its great they are back with a new album and I am pleased they are on the Label, its another great addition to the roster and I’m excited about the new album. As long as they don’t cover anymore Blondie songs Im a happy camper!"

BEHEADED - Lyric Video Premiere - The Charlatan's Enunciation
Malta's premiere death metal outfit BEHEADED reveal a new track from their upcoming album "Only Death Can Save You", which will be released on June 14th via Agonia Records. Available as a lyric video, "The Charlatan's Enunciation" is the album's opening track, and second the single to see the light of day after "A Greater Terror".
Forged from the darkest depths, "Only Death Can Save You" breathes violence and marches fearlessly down its death metal path. Summoning the visceral classic and the caustic edge of later death metal, the new punishing album spreads its aural horror with razor sharp precision.
"Only Death Can Save You" was recorded and mixed at Mk2 Recording Studio, run by the band's drummer, Davide Billa. The album was mastered at Hertz Studio in Poland. Cover artwork was painted by Daniel Corcuero (Nekronikon).

RIPPED TO SHREDS - 'Demon Scriptures' EP - New Song revealed
Californian buzzsaw assailant RIPPED TO SHREDS follows up with a new EP after the highly acclaimed debut full-length last year!
"魔經 - Demon Scriptures" will be released on June 14th 2019 via Pulverised Records and sees the band morphing into a more vicious HM-2 machine while purposefully weaving Chinese horror & folklore tales with a fresh retrospective.
A second new track, entitled "Nine Familial Exterminations", is available for streaming now at this location: https://pulverised.bandcamp.com/album/demon-scriptures
Mastermind Andrew Lee states: "In ancient China, the capital punishment for treason in which any family related to the offender, grandparents, grandchildren, inlaws, aunts and uncles, were all executed along with him. 'Nine Familial Exterminations' attempts to musically reproduce this cruel tyranny through ripping deathrash and grindcore."
The EP was produced at Subterranean Watchtower by Damian Herring (Horrendous, Blood Incantation, Sentient Horror, etc) and is garnished by a grotesquely spellbinding artwork from Velio Josto. The drums were performed by Kevin Paradis, known from his work with bands such as Benighted, Svart Crown, Melechesh or Shining, to name a few.
1. 喪家 (In Mourning)
2. 江湖郎中 (Pseudoelixir)
3. 株九族 (Nine Familial Exterminations)
