NECRONOMICON - New Video Clip Premiere 'They Lie' - New Album via El Puerto Records
German Thrash Metallers NECRONOMICON reveal a second song from their upcoming new album "Constant To Death", set for release on April 28th, 2023 via El Puerto Records.
Check out the video premiere for "They Lie" at this location: https://youtu.be/IyxzCtusZQU
With their twelfth studio album, NECRONOMICON embark on an explosive tightrope walk between Thrash, Punk and Power Metal. It was recorded and produced it in the band's own headquarters and mixed and mastered by Achim Köhler. The cover artwork was designed by Kattrin Peter of Kudulounge.
Frontman Freddy describes "Constant To Death" as his most modern and at the same time most personal album: "There's everything in these 12 songs, from typical NECRONOMICON sounds to catchy Power Metal to my musical origins of Punk."
Due to the worldwide events, the album title "Constant To Death" is also the main theme of the lyrics. The Russian war of aggression on Ukraine, churches and their sexual abuse, child poverty and hunger...there are very serious and sociocritical lyrics, which turn out accordingly dismal.

VREDENSDAL, founded 2018 by The Goblin Reaper in Green Bay, Wisconsin - with the intention to alter the typical expectations of what Black Metal can be, integrating multiple influences into a single dynamic force to call out the primal desire within all to look deeper into our own inner shadow. Dubbed "N.W.O.U.S.B.M." by fans, the music features styles both, the familiar and the unknown, which weave a tapestry of homages to the masters of yesteryear and explore new takes on the genre, most often in a thrashing & grooving madness. Fans of both the classic and contemporary Black Metal sound will find this outstanding act warrants repeated listening.

OBSEQUIAE - Full Live Performance Video via 20 Buck Spin - Fire in the Mountains 2022
20 Buck Spin proudly presents a video of OBSEQUIAE's live performance at "Fire in the Mountains" (2022), featuring a soundboard recording / mix and professional camera work.
Check it out at this location: https://youtu.be/tQM-4n3Iq3E
Bandleader and guitarist Tanner Anderson states:
Performing at Fire in the Mountains in 2022 was powerful. After two years of pandemic and quarantine, people had a real need for the kind of engagement and sincerity that a festival like FitM has cultivated. The connection between everyone - onstage and off - felt more genuine and heartfelt than any other I've encountered in my life. As a band that doesn't play live often, it meant that much more for us to enjoy such a privilege, including the spectacular hospitality extended to us in that valley in Wyoming.
Our live band had collectively endured profound losses between 2020 and 2022. It brought us closer and made our work together more important, with Fire in the Mountains as a culmination of this. We felt it in each other, the audience, the staff - even the land itself. We shared stories, tears, and laughter with old and new friends. For the band, it was a celebration of our friendship with one another and our work, though not without a touch of the bittersweet; two weeks after we returned from Fire in the Mountains, Eoghan would move to Dublin, Ireland and I would move to Boston, Massachusetts. It wasn't so much that we wouldn't still work together or see one another - it was that we both had large transitions on our minds during a time where everyone seemed to already be in a state of some great transition as well.
As the festival got underway, the idea that we really weren't going to see each other afterwards for quite some time began to deepen. So, we wanted to see if anyone at FitM might keep this performance as a record, even if it was just for us. We were extremely fortunate to meet some kind people with cameras, access to the soundboard recording, and a willingness to do just that with no notice at all. Rather than keep it to ourselves, we offer this to you here since it was a profound and collective effort. Thank you to Fire in the Mountains and all who took part in this singular experience.
Obsequiae performance at Fire in the Mountains: July 24, 2022 at Heart Six Ranch in Moran, Wyoming on the lands of the Newe Sogobia (Eastern Shoshone), Cayuse, Umatilla, Walla Walla, Shoshone-Bannock, Tséstho’e (Cheyenne), Arapaho, and Crow.

BLOODGUTTER - Debut Album "Death Mountain" via Trollzorn Records - Lyric Video Premiere
Hailing from Silkeborg/Denmark and formed in 2019, BLOODGUTTER is the result of four good friends who wanted to play some nasty music together, despite quite notable musical differences. A common musical ground was quickly found and after a lot songwriting and practicing the band recorded an 11 track full-length album, that is good to go now. They handled the recording themselves in their hometown and the mastering was done by Jacob Bredahl at Dead Rat Studios.
Musically "Death Mountain" comes off sounding very catchy, heavy, groovy, and gritty. The buzz saw guitar tone alongside the genuine production makes you think of the golden years of death metal. Inspired by a vast array of bands, BLOODGUTTER have often been described as a bastard mix of Entombed and Obituary.
So if you like your death metal raw, simple and oldschool, you should definitely give these Danes and their debut album “Death Mountain” a shot! Coming on May 5th, 2023 via Trollzorn Records.

KOMMAND - New Album from LA's Death Metallers via 20 Buck Spin - New Track Premiere
Los Angeles based Death Metallers KOMMAND have released a second song from their upcoming new full-length, "Death Age".
Check out "Global Death" at this location: https://youtu.be/3U7qUltWNn4
The album will be unleashed on March 31st, 2023 via 20 Buck Spin on CD, Vinyl, Tape and digitally.
It was recorded by Mike Kriebel and mixed/mastered by Arthur Rizk. The artwork was created by Bharatadanu.
The ominous atmosphere on ‘Death Age’ heralds the single-minded concentrated objective; to batter, demolish and destroy with no quarter given. Death Metal of this kind taps into the most primitive, untamed instincts, advancing like a convoy of tanks through occupied territory, heedless of whatever or whoever stands in its path. From opener ‘Final Virus’ to closer ‘Collapse Metropolis’ KOMMAND’s vision of a dystopian hellscape, cities permanently scarred by heavy weaponry, and those unfortunates who survived the onslaught never relents or offers respite. ‘Death Age’ thus renders a terminal epitaph on the bloody trash heap of near-future history.
1. Final Virus
2. Chimera Soldiers
3. Global Death
4. Polar Holdout
5. Fleeing Western Territories
6. Collapse Metropolis

ATHANATHEOS – French Death Metallers return with 'Cross. Deny. Glorify.' – New Album via Lavadome Productions
France’s ATHANATHEOS have announced a new concept album entitled "Cross. Deny. Glorify."!
The band’s third full-length will be released on April 14th, 2023 via Lavadome Productions. It was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered between July 2019 to December 2022 at the Atheistic Dungeon by Samuel Girard. The cover artwork is a painting by Giulio Romano (1524, "The Battle of the Milvian Bridge").
A first track, "The Silent Oblivion", has been premiered at this location: https://youtu.be/5I3wfCtPJ3Q
ATHANATHEOS have refined their craft to deliver real metal grandeur upon the listener. However, the mentality that undergirds this record is the same one that allowed Death Metal to evolve and thrive in the exile of absolute ostracism by the mainstream: No trends, no compromise, only pure vision.
The concept of the album follows the paths of three generations of Roman men (a soldier, merchand and philosopher) as they watch their empire decay from within in the wake of Emperor Constantine’s adoption of Christanity as its official religion, every song on "Cross. Deny. Glorify." is unique in its character while holding true to a core musical vision that binds the entire record.
1. The Cross
2. You Were Not
3. Credo Quia Absurdum
4. They Are Spreading the Pestilence
5. To Deny
6. The Silent Oblivion
8. Rise of Terror, Rise of Intolerance
9. To Glorify

The end result is VOIDCEREMONY and their signature sound: Time-melting Death Black Fusion!
