GLORIOR BELLI release video clip for new song "Backwoods Bayou"
Black metal bluesmen GLORIOR BELLI premiere a video clip for the song "Backwoods Bayou", taken from the new album “Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls”. The album was released at the turn of October and November. Watch the video at YouTube: youtu.be/wd8l94NZyKA
Consequently climbing the ladder of innovation and artistic development, the French band GLORIOR BELLI managed to work out a very own sound and view in the often stiff frames found within the black metal genre. Descriptions such as "Avant-garde black metal bluesmen" (Pitchfork) or "bluesy doom-sludge" (Metal Sucks) are only the two sides of the same coin, that is about to reveal a new flip. "Gators Rumble, Chaos Unfurls" - band's fifth full-length release - is yet another milestone of an unusual relationship between southern stylistics and crushing heaviness, all tied up and sealed by a twisted yet still refreshing take on music, straight from the suburbs of Paris.
DEMONICAL - New videoclip "The Healing Control"
The Swedish death metal force DEMONICAL have released a video for "The Healing Control", a track taken from their critically acclaimed fourth full-length album "Darkness Unbound" which was unleashed in Europe on September 20th (through Cyclone Empire) and in North America on November 12th (through Metal Blade Records).
The video - their first from the above mentioned album - is a dark and morbid clip filmed in Italy and the UK and presents the inner essence of DEMONICAL and their sinister form of old-school death metal. "Darkness Unbound" was mixed & mastered by the bands vocalist Sverker Widgren at Wing Studios in Stockholm.

PULVERISED RECORDS - New signing: UNDER THE CHURCH
Swedish Death Metal chieftains UNDER THE CHURCH have inked a worldwide deal with Pulverised Records!
The undeniable sounds of scurrilous and rotten Death Metal have always been best executed by the certain few originators whom literally created the term 'Swedish Death Metal' that would go down in extreme Music history forever. After their long-endearing stint with Nirvana 2002, the two weathered henchmen Erik Qvick and Lars Henriksson decided it was about time to write some offensive Death Metal once again; something that would nauseate and turn stomachs like it was Death Metal in 1988.
UNDER THE CHURCH wasted no time and released a three-song demo simply titled "Demo 2013" and then very quickly gained a vast underground attention soon after. News spread like wildfire about both Erik and Lars doing new material post-Nirvana 2002, and thus a full-length UNDER THE CHURCH record is imminent.
“We are very happy to announce that we have signed a deal with the label Pulverised Records and we are already working on the debut CD that we aim to release in 2014.”, states the band. "Pulverised Records has a great roster of diverse bands, so for us it's a good feeling to be able to work together with Pulverised. We have already started writing the new material and we will start pre-production / demos for the recording in early 2014. Those tunes are the next step and extension of what we have written so far…. so you can expect more raw Death Metal from UNDER THE CHURCH!"
Pulverised Records A&R Manager Calvin further commented: "Truth be told, Erik Qvick wrote to us a while back and was wanting some feedback regarding UNDER THE CHURCH. There was no real concrete plan to record a full-length album, but it was very obvious that we had to push them into that plan! After a couple of email conversations, the deal was sealed and pre-production demos of the new album should be coming our way soon. We are extremely honoured and excited to be a part of the UNDER THE CHURCH vile-campaign, and expect an authentic exhumation of real classic Swedish Death Metal in 2014!"
UNDER THE CHURCH is:
Erik Qvick - Drums / Guitars
Lars Henriksson - Bass
MiK Annetts – Vocals
URGENT NEWS ABOUT THE DEMONICAL-TOUR: LEIPZIG SHOW CANCELLED!!!!!!!
*** Statement from Dreamtide Music Management, 2013 10 24 ***
We are very sorry to inform you that the DEMONICAL + SPASMODIC + HAILSTONE show scheduled for Saturday 26.10 at Hellraiser in Leipzig, Germany, has been canceled by the promoter (Katrin Schönfuss @ Hellraiser) due to a miscalculation from her side. Being the second time this happens when dealing with the Hellraiser club we of course hereby heavily question their professionalism and basic skills in math.
We at Dreamtide Music tried to solve the situation and negotiate with Katrin in order to keep the date intact but without succeeding, she wasn’t even interested in our very generous counter-offer and insisted to stick to her decision which was delivered to us with a three days notice despite signed contracts and agreements valid since months.
DEMONICAL, SPASMODIC and HAILSTONE are very sorry for all their fans and followers - some coming from far away - who were about to attend the show in Leipzig but as you all surely understand the situation is beyond the control of the bands or management.
