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.

THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION - Deal with Curz Del Sur Music - New Album in September
Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the signing of Australian psychedelic rock and roll occultists THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION. The label will release the band’s next full-length, “Memoirs Of A Rat Queen”, this September.
THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION and Cruz Del Sur Music decided to join forces after the band's triumphant appearance at the 2018 installment of the Hell Over Hammaburg festival in Hamburg, Germany. Cruz Del Sur owner Enrico met the band backstage and subsequently offered them a deal. “It’s a pretty cool way of getting signed,” says guitarist Inverted CruciFox. “I didn’t think things like that happened nowadays, but it keeps with our retro aesthetic.”
Enrico adds: “I was first introduced to NPF over a year ago and I couldn’t miss the opportunity to see them live at Hell Over Hammaburg last March. I must say that their show was way beyond my best expectations, their energy and vibes were something I hadn’t witnessed live for a long time. Something significant happened: I went in the backstage to give my support to Sanhedrin before their show and NPF were getting off stage. When the doors opened and they stepped into the backstage a spontaneous applause rose in the small room. For me that was a sign that the band really gave everything on stage and was able to touch the audience really deeply. Seeing NPF live was an intense, overwhelming experience that I will always carry in my heart.”
On “Memoirs Of A Rat Queen”, THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION plans to further convey the narrative which has woven their previous albums together — an intergalactic tale of time travel. “Currently we are attempting to convey the story of the Imperial Priestess's time travelling existence on earth and the various lives she has lived through human history. Occasionally we touch on her mortal enemy, the Wizzard King and his never-ending attempts to defeat her.”
“Memoirs Of A Rat Queen” is currently being mixed, after which, the band will be playing several Australian festivals. Once the album is out, it will be accompanied with a handful of new music videos.
"We are very excited about increasing the reach of THE NEPTUNE POWER FEDERATION church internationally - like rock and roll missionaries,” closes Inverted CruciFox. “Perhaps we will become like Scientology only with more guitars, battle jackets and drinking."

THE LORD WEIRD SLOUGH FEG - New Album Announcement - "New Organon"
“I didn’t want to just ‘put out another album,’” begins SLOUGH FEG vocalist/guitarist Mike Scalzi. “I remember telling people that I didn’t want to do another album just to do another album, like so often happens. So, we wrote a lot of songs and only picked the best ones.”
Such was the approach for SLOUGH FEG’s long-awaited tenth studio album, “New Organon”, which will see the light of day via Cruz Del Sur Music on June 14th, 2019 in European territories and June 21st in North America. “New Organon” also marks the recording debut of drummer Jeff Griffin (who split studio duties with John Dust) and joins Scalzi and longtime members Angelo Tringali (guitar) and Adrian Maestas (bass).
“New Organon” is another definitive statement from one of America’s most enduring and unique true metal bands, whose penchant for THIN LIZZY-inspired guitar harmonies and Scalzi’s timeless storytelling has turned albums such as 2005’s “Atavism”, 2007’s “Hardworlder” and 2010’s “The Animal Spirits” into proto-metal bedrocks.
