NIGHTBEARER – Debut Album "Tales Of Sorcery and Death" via Testimony Records – Details and Trackstream available
After the critically acclaimed 2018 EP "Stories From Beyond", German Death Metallers NIGHTBEARER are finally announcing their first full-length album "Tales Of Sorcery and Death"! It will be released on December 13th 2019 via Testimony Records.
Deeply inspired by the 90s Swedish scene with its brutal chainsaw sound, they took the next step and gave the songs more melodies and aggression while retaining all the trademarks of the EP, for example the catchy refrains, giving each song its own character, as well as the lyrics that range in the realm of fantasy and horror, heavily influenced by writers such as J.R.R. Tolkien, G.R.R. Martin or Stephen King. Sound and lyrics are brought to life with a stunning artwork by Juanjo Castellano Rosado.

KRATER - New Album "Venenare" - Track Premiere
Today, German black metal mavericks KRATER premiere the new track "Stellar Sparks" at Decibel magazine's website.
The track hails from the band's highly anticipated fourth album, "Venenare", set for release on November 15th, 2019 via Eisenwald.
A 50-minute work broken into nine songs but unified as one winding, widescreen composition, "Venenare" shows KRATER at the height of their all-too-considerable powers, a blinding and windswept vortex of sumptuous songcraft and passionate execution. Motifs slice and dice, blast and race with a grace that's simply stunning, as melodic counterplay runs riot with a proud 'n' powerful assertion of classic metal sensibility. Krater's contours here undeniably exude a sleek and urban quality, but with abstracted hints of their pagan past subtly woven in to the soundfield, the result is staunchly second-wave black metal bravely recast for the 21st century. "Venenare" is thus timeless, yet forward-thinking all the same.
With cover artwork courtesy of Misanthropic-Art and mixing & mastering handled by Esoteric's Greg Chandler, KRATER have gone full-force to deliver a great work for the ages with "Venenare". The only hurdle is resisting its spellbinding pull...

REVEAL - New Album "Scissorgod" - Video Premiere
Sepulchral Voice Records is proud to announce the highly anticipated third full-length of Sweden's REVEAL, "Scissorgod"!
The album will be released on November 29th, 2019 on CD and vinyl LP formats!
A video for the track "Clevermouth" is available at this location: https://youtu.be/4l7BxuxEo6M
REVEAL draw inspiration from a wide range of genres, artists, and styles and thus have they been convicted as the black chameleons in the worldwide heavy metal / rock scene. With "Scissorgod" do REVEAL prove again that they give no fucks for uniforms, blinders, and the opinions of others; they simply collect and inhale the madness of the world and channel it into a pure outburst of DEATH ROCK (think about those two words for a moment).
