German black metal formation HEIMDALLS WACHT will release its new album entitled "Ut de graute olle Tied (Deel II) - Land der Nebel" on October 9th via Black Skull Records.
HEIMDALLS WACHT is the sound and the fury of our present era, reproaching the modern world in its pervasive conformity and mindless stupidity. Clamoring wrath! Shrieking desperation! Sonic weltschmerz! Withdrawn melancholy! HEIMDALLS WACHT’s music, lyrics, and overall concept provide an outlet for a deep-rooted uneasiness, a discomfort in the face of an empty zeitgeist and the monotony of the masses, treating with contempt today’s consumer society that venerates hollow idols and cannot grasp true spiritual richness
"Land der Nebel" will be available as CD and lim. Gatefold DLP (incl. Bonustrack + Poster)
1. Indiculus paganiarum
2. Die fallenden Blätter der Irminsul
3. Conspiratio Barbarica

High Roller Records - New signing: CAULDRON
Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, CAULDRON has signed with High Roller Records (Europe) and The End Records (North America) to release their long-awaited fourth studio album, In Ruin.
For the new album the trio returned to the Lincoln County Social Club recording studio in Toronto, where they recorded two of their previous albums, including Burning Fortune (2011) and Tomorrow’s Lost (2012).
Co-produced by Chris Stringer (Rush, Timber Timbre), In Ruin, scheduled for an early 2016 release, is sure to deliver more riffs, more attitude and more modern heavy metal classics while laying waste to all of the genre’s imitators.
“We are quite pumped to finally see our new album release plans come to light and are quite excited about our new endeavor with High Roller and The End Records. We were very proud of our last record Tomorrow’s Lost, so we had to take our time and make sure to top it with a proper follow up. I am confident we’ve accomplished that.” – Jason Decay, CAULDRON

Commented artwork designer Juanjo Castellano: “The inspiration for the cover-artwork of ‘Battle Breed’ came from true old school death metal like Bolt Thrower, Hail Of Bullets and others. War movies also influenced me, as did Bodyfarm’s killer sound of course! To work with Bodyfarm was intense as usual. They are truly committed to the quality of their art so we talked and discussed a lot. But finally, all turned out great!”
Commented BODYFARM guitarist and frontman Thomas Wouters: "We have recorded our most versatile and aggressive album so far. Every song is really different and suits the lyrical theme going with the song. From brutality to melancholy, it’s all there. The mix is very honest. No triggers or samples were used and the instruments are just as we played it: practically no editing! Ronnie Björnström did a great job recording the drums and mixing the album, and Martin van Drunen added the extra spice to The Dark Age!"
