LUNAR SHADOW - New Album "Wish To Leave" - Track Premiere
German Metallers LUNAR SHADOW will release their third studio album, "Wish To Leave", on March 19th 2021 via Cruz Del Sur Music.
The opening track "Serpents Die" is streaming now at this location: https://youtu.be/-xbqB8KsRys
"Wish To Leave", featuring an artwork by Denis Forkas Kostromitin, was recorded from July to November 2020 in Leipzig under the careful eye of engineer/producer Max Herrmann; V. Santura of Dark Fortress and Triptykon fame mastered the album.
The six songs found herein are interwoven with melody and darkness with stripped-down guitars and greater emphasis on vocals as well as the rhythmic aspects of LUNAR SHADOW, who are completed by vocalist Robert Röttig, second guitarist K. Hamacher, bassist S. Hamacher and drummer J. Zehner. It is an album sure to intrigue and puzzle - while several Lunar Shadow sonic trademarks remain in place, "Wish To Leave" represents a new direction sound borne out of artistic restlessness and ceaseless creativity from founder, guitarist and songwriter Max Birbaum.

DARK QUARTERER - Play the entire "Pompei" Album LIVE to support local theater
On Saturday February 13th 2021, Italian Prog Metal Legend DARK QUARTERER will stream an exclusive show - featuring the entire "Pompei" album - on Bandcamp.
Find out more here: https://darkquarterer.bandcamp.com/merch/rising-from-the-silence
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, their local theater shut its door almost one year ago. The band felt the urgency to support their local cultural institution and filmed their complete show in the empty theater.
DARK QUARTERER also started a crowdfunding campaign on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/donate/710790436279958/710810156277986/
Official band statement: "In this moment we feel it's extremely important to help and support our theaters and cinemas. For this reason we have recorded a show in the “Metropolitan Piombino” theater, here in our hometown. We played the entire “Pompei” album and will make the show available on Bandcamp for a minimum fee of €5. The full income will be donated to the Metropolitan. The theater's been closed for months now and risks to go out of business and be shut down permanently. We believe that - in this current situation - supporting and preserving culture is a priority, even more than ever before. And we wish to thank in advance all those who will help contributing our small "fund-raising" for our local theater."

THE RUINS OF BEVERAST - New song revealed
THE RUINS OF BEVERAST have revealed another song from their upcoming new album "The Thule Grimoires".
Listen to "Anchoress In Furs" here: https://youtu.be/4-m2_YtMHEw
"The Thule Grimoires" are THE RUINS OF BEVERAST's 6th spawn in full-length and continue the sonorous wandering across anecumenical spheres that form up and embattle for the ever raging war against poisonous and verminous trespassers of human origin. The seven works evolve around discarnate, spiritful protagonists that join the brave and inexorable powers of nature against their foe. These sceneries are rooted within the familiar TROBesque experience, grim and low-bottomed monolithic tone, enriched with morbid melodic facets and surreal soundscapes.
The release is set for February 5th 2021 via Ván Records!

2. The Tundra Shines

THE GENERALS - New Album "To Hell" via Black Zombie Records - Details & Video revealed
Black Zombie Records proudly announces the third full-length of Swedish Death'n'Rollers THE GENERALS!
"To Hell" will be released on February 26th 2021. It was produced by Tomas Skogsberg and recorded at Sunlight Studio, Black Zombie Studio and Dead Dog Farm. The mix and mastering were handled by Lawrence Mackrory at Dugout Productions (FKÜ, LIK, Baest).
THE GENERALS founded in 2002 with a mission to play dirty Action Rock, but quickly evolved into a Death’n’Roll machine. Even though there is still a vein of Rock'n'Roll throughout the music, the band's new album is more Death Metal than ever before. The mix of crushing riffs, epic choruses and evil melodies makes for a headbanging recipe for success.

1. Faith In Fire
2. To Hell
3. Evolution Of The Flesh
4. Thrill Kill
