REVEL IN FLESH – New album in December
The Deathkult returns!
Swabian Death Metal masters REVEL IN FLESH will unleash their new and fourth full-length-onslaught, entitled “Emissary Of All Plagues”, on 2nd December 2016 via Cyclone Empire.
The album was produced by guitar master Maggesson at the band´s own Vault M. Studio. For mix and mastering they worked again with none other than Dan Swanö (BLOODBATH, EDGE OF SANITY, NIGHTINGALE…) at his Unisound Studios.
Mainman Haubersson comments: “After intense months of working and recording we are damned excited about releasing “Emissary of all plagues” upon mankind! It's probably our darkest and most melodic output thus far! Expect a haunted trip to the darkside mixed with the previously known REVEL IN FLESH Death Metal brutality! We are looking forward to present those new tracks on stage as soon as possible! The restless servants of the Deathkult are back!”
Here´s what the Dan “the legend” Swanö has to say about “Emissary Of All Plagues”: “Another fantastic worship at the altar of SweDeath. To create the best album so far into their career is astonishing. Both me and the band feel this our best sonic co-operation so far, and to me personally, it is extra cool to finally have nailed what I believe to be the ultimate tribute to the SweDeath Guitar tone! It takes more than just a HM2 pedal to get the right “vomiting” to occur “inside” the distortion! Make sure to check out the vinyl version for a full dynamic mix of this amazing slab of true fucking death metal!”
More infos, tracklist and coverartwork will follow soon.

ANCIENT - New track streaming
Extreme metallers ANCIENT have released a second track of their new album "Back To The Land Of The Dead" which will be unleashed on 16th September via Soulseller Records. Check out "Death Will Die" at these locations exclusively:
Metalnews.de / Friedhof Magazine / Kaaoszine / Power Of Metal
"Back To The Land Of The Dead" is a comeback for Ancient, 12 years after the previous release "Night Visit". The album was recorded in 7 different locations, in Norway, Denmark, Italy and Greece, mixed in Elfo Studios in Italy, and mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios. The album was produced by Ancient. With Nick Barker behind the drumkit, the album is, as expected, the most aggressive and fastest album of Ancient, yet still with a good amount of clean guitars, and various dark atmospheres as the band is known for. The music was composed by Zel and Dhilorz. The lyrics on the album are all written by Zel, many of them speaking about the devil, the spirit of the devil and how it influences us in various devastating and destructive ways, as well as some fantasy lyrics, still somehow connected with the "old Nick subject". The album cover shows a hooded figure coming back to "the land of the dead" to wake up the "spiritually dead people there". The album is 66 minutes long and has 13 tracks, including a cover of Bathory " 13 Candles".
HOUSE BY THE CEMETRAY - Deal with Pulverised Records / Debut album in the works
One of the latest collaboration between Swedish riff-machine Rogga Johansson (Paganizer, Ribspreader, Bone Gnawer, Demiurge, etc) and legendary six-string hacksaw fiend Eric Cutler of the mighty Death Metal evergreens Autopsy, comes a new embodiment of horror and darkness under the moniker HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY!
HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY is a blatant adaptation from the 1981 cult supernatural horror film "The House By The Cemetery" directed by Italian Gore godfather Lucio Fulci and with that as the main influence and driving force, both Rogga and Eric started stewing up ideas for what eventually became an outlet for their love of horror films and of course Death Metal, with HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY. The perfectly-fitting HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY band logo was designed by Bob Toderico, who has done work for bands such as Asphyx, Sinister, Mefisto, etc.
Work on the group's debut album is now underway, with the mixing currently in progress. More details on the album will be announced at a later date.
"This record comes from our darkened souls of horror. May its blood drip from your turntable as it bludgeons your mind!", says Eric Cutler on the upcoming HOUSE BY THE CEMETARY debut album. Rogga Johansson adds: "Expect nothing but the dirtiest ugliest Death Metal we could spew forth."
ONHEIL - Digital releases + New video + Special live show
Dutch Blackened Heavy/Death Metal band ONHEIL proudly announces the digital release of their last two albums 'Storm Is Coming' and 'Razor'. Besides the CD format, these two albums are now also available through web stores and streaming services like Spotify, i-Tunes, Google Play and Amazon. Both albums are published by German record label Cyclone Empire.
The digital release is accompanied by a music video for the song “The Omega Legions” which contains mostly footage from one of their live shows, both filmed professionally as well as by fans in the audience.
Check out the video here: youtu.be/0dnVUNt1bfA
'The Omega Legions' is not only a song about nihilism and revolution, it's also how ONHEIL has named their fans. Especially the ones supporting the band at their live shows, headbanging like crazy or getting into the mosh-pit. The song and video is ONHEIL's way to pay tribute to these metal maniacs.
ONHEIL will also play a special headline show on the 27th of August at the legendary underground venue Baroeg, The Netherlands, to celebrate the occasion.
ONHEIL's latest album 'Storm Is Coming', which features the song “The Omega Legions' was produced and mixed by Bart Hennephof (TEXTURES) and Yuma van Eekelen (Ex-PESTILENCE) at the Final Focus Studios, The Netherlands. The mastering was done by Tore Stjerna at the Necromorbus Studios, Sweden (WATAIN, DESTRÖYER 666). The album booklet holds 16 pages of high-quality artwork of which a large part is done by an upcoming artist of the GrimTwins Studios (DEICIDE).
AKATHARTA - Deal with Pulverised Records
It is an absolute pleasure to welcome the latest unspeakable malevolence AKATHARTA!
With this creature spawned by none other than the infamous Death Metal legend Kam Lee (ex-Mantas, ex-Massacre, Bone Gnawer, etc), AKATHARTA didn't become a reality until 2015 when Kam eventually found the perfect musicians whom not only understood the darkness and horrific aura of this particular genre but also could deliver with feeling and conviction; especially more so in this form of music than the rest.
AKATHARTA is Kam Lee's dark vision of Funeral Doom Black Death Metal. Conceptualized over a decade ago around the year 2006 and being a huge fan of the Finnish Doom bands Thergothon, Skepticism as well as Wormphlegm; Kam wanted to something in a similar vein, music that evoked pure dismal dread and overwhelming foreboding doom.
Almost a decade later and through several unreliable different line ups, Kam finally found the proper musicians to bring this band into reality. With both Aaron and Travis of the band Cropsy Maniac, Aaron was writing music with such doom-laden expressions of turmoil and dread and Travis bringing in the heavy bone pounding doom-ridden beats of trepidation, this was the perfect line-up to finally bring AKATHARTA to the world. With a concept and lyrical theme based on the paranormal, ghost hunting and parapsychology lyrics based heavily upon hauntings from both the ancient mythology and modern urban mythology. Kam wanted to introduce something new and different into the music by incorporating actual E.V.P. (Electronic Voice Phenomena) or spirit voices throughout several recordings. The entire idea behind AKATHARTA is for Kam to deliver the most doom-laden, heaviest form of Metal he has ever done with the most profoundly heavy vocals and tormented agonizing woefulness he can muster.
A promo track entitled 'Pneumata' is now available for streaming at this location - akatharta.bandcamp.com/track/pneumata.
