AZARATH - New album "In Extremis" in April - Details and first song revealed
Polish death/black metal tyrants AZARATH premiere a brand new song from their highly anticipated album "In Extremis", set to be released on April 7th via Agonia Records. Available in a form of a lyric video, "At The Gates Of Understanding" is the first single to be released from the album. It arrives six long years after the band's last installment, "Blasphemers' Maledictions", from 2011. The lyric video was created by Tomasz Strzałkowski and can be watched here: https://youtu.be/PkOqzLUXPAU
Touted as a "demonic mutation of Krisiun and Behemoth with shades of Immolation", AZARATH stand up to their wicked name. The band's death metal is crisp, black, and while it possesses the charm of their American counterparts, it remains open-minded and organic. This should not come as a surprise, considering the AZARATH's impressive line-up and cemented position as one the the best Polish acts of the genre. The band was formed in 1998 by drummer Inferno (of Behemoth fame). He's accompanied by Bart (Armagedon, Damnation) on guitars, Necrosodom (Anima Damnata, Deus Mortem, ex-Infernal War) on vocals and guitars, as well as Peter (ex-Lost Soul) on bass.
Meaning "at the point of death" or "under extreme circumstances" in Latin, "In Extremis" is yet another apex reached by AZARATH. Offering a vehement ride through the netherworlds, the effort places the band back at the fore of the genre, with strong ties to the group's early cult albums. The eerie painting that adorns the album's cover was made by Marta Promińska (Hypnagogic Painting).
Recorded in various locations between March and November 2016, "In Extremis" was mixed and mastered by Haldor Grunberg at Satanic Audio. Graphic design and layout were done by Mentalporn (Behemoth, Origin, Decapitated) with calligraphy provided by Ihasan Art and additional work by Holy Poison Design.

DEVIL - New album "To The Gallows" announced for April - Details and first song revealed
Norwegian Doom-Rockers DEVIL are back with their third full-length album!
"To The Gallows" will be released on April 21st 2017 via Soulseller Records on CD, limited LP (black and red vinyl versions) and digitally. The successor to 2013's "Gather The Sinners" was produced in cooperation with Stein Roger Sund at Black Dimension Studios. The cover art was created by Kim Holm.
A video clip featuring studio footage and the title track is available at this location: https://youtu.be/4NKOaTNEJ8c
The band comments: "Bands always say that their newest effort is their greatest. We say fuck that. This is a heavy rock album, and it's up to the listener to decide how good it is. We're darned proud of it, though, and think it sums up the first era of Devil pretty good, with maybe our most heavy metal parts so far, but still building around The Riff, the main ingredient in any heavy metal song writing. We like to think we've come a long way these years, and are happy to end our first trilogy with this album. We're more of a band than ever, and joint efforts have made further improvements to the band. We'd say this is an album still for fans of Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Witchfinder General, etc, but also touching into the 1981 NWOBHM quite a bit, especially on the title track."
