KAWIR - Deal with Soulseller Records - New Album 'Kydoimos' coming in 2024

Soulseller Records proudly announces a worldwide deal with Greek cult act KAWIR!

KAWIR formed in the Greek black metal scene of the 90s and have been exploring Greek mythology, literature, and mysteries for 30 years - and no other band really captures the essence of those stories and times the same way.

Celebrating 3 decades of creating music, KAWIR's new album "Κυδοιμοσ" (latinized "Kydoimos", a deity representing the clang and chaos of war) is slated for a spring 2024 release via their new label home.

Here's a first insight:

The name of the album derives from one of the Makhai (Μάχαι,) Ancient Greek daemons (personifications/spirits) of war. Kydoimos in particular refers to the personification of the cacophony and bedlam of battle. Typically he is referred to as a son of Eris (Ερις, no to be confused with Ares (Αρης)), the goddess of strife, and he appears in many key ancient texts. Most importantly the Iliad, where he is said adorn Achillies' shield alongside his mother and a Ker (Κίρ.) He is also mentioned as adorning the shield of Heracles in Hesiod's work.

The album itself takes much from both the Iliad and Kydoimos. It is a belligerent and aggressive exploration of ancient war, of they who won glory on Troy land and the many who found their end there. Fittingly for its subject matter, "Kydoimos" is an album that sees KAWIR achieve new heights in both unrelenting heaviness and epic atmosphere. You have tracks like the brutal "Tiresias (Τειρεσιας)" standing side by side with a three track epic exploring the legacy of Achilles the runs the whole gambit. In other hands this could've felt schizophrenic, with KAWIR it feels like an ambitious point they've been working towards for a couple of records now.

Keep your eyes and ears open for more details in the near future!

INCULTER - New Track Premiere "Morbid Origin"

Norwegian Black-Thrashers INCULTER have revealed the title track from their upcoming new album "Morbid Origin", set for release on December 8th 2023 via Edged Circle Productions.

Check it out here: https://youtu.be/sNKenbBH_YU

The song sees the thrashing quartet diving further deeper into their now already trademark sound which they quite remarkably displayed on the previous full length effort “Fatal Visions” a few years back. It also very clearly shows how versatile and creative this band is in 2023. The future is bright red!

Having being still busy on the live front during the absent few years since the last album, the band has still also been secretly moulding and stirring the pots of intense creativity for quite some time. This time, like earlier recordings, the band has been at the helm of full production and mix themselves, but have also received a lending hand from Gord Olson (Darkened, AngelBlast) on the mastering process. The end result is as stunning as it is incredibly forward thinking. More riffs, more epic melodies and more everything basically! A future classic has been masterfully created by INCULTER, and being the fans of the genre themselves as much as they are at the top of their game with their own stunning new album “Morbid Origin”….this album will not go unnoticed!

THE LAST EON - New Single Premiere 'DMT - Infernal Fractality' - Debut Album via Soulseller Records

Norwegian Extreme Metallers THE LAST EON have revealed the title track from the upcoming debut full-length "Infernal Fractality" as the final advance single.

"DMT - Infernal Fractality" can be checked out here: https://youtu.be/BW3l128RcuY

The album will be unleashed on November 17th 2023 via Soulseller Records on CD, LP and digitally.

"Infernal Fractality" unleashes a relentless onslaught of sonic brutality that has consumed over half a decade of tireless devotion from the band's enigmatic founder, Ødemark (known for his work with 3rd Attempt, Ovate, and Necrocave). Ødemark, an artist driven by both the fiery passion of psychedelics and a relentless pursuit of extreme metal's uncharted territories, has woven these elements into an epic, violent, and boundary-defying soundscape that delves deep into the realms of the Luciferian ideals, non-duality pointers, and the mystic principles found in his own psychedelic experiences.

THE LAST EON was formed to push the boundaries of the established but dormant industrial black metal sound pioneered by bands such Thorns and Mysticum and to its maximum exponential, with the vision of "creating the most intense music in history", objective that took 6 years of obsession, a couple burnouts, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers and outers, to map the depths of the psychedelic experience that would be distilled into "Infernal Fractality". With the help of drummer Jarle Byberg, Ødemark created this whole beast by himself.

After years of pushing every conceivable boundary, and breaking every possible rule and standard in composition, production and sound design, the masterpiece was ready for the crucible of Zardonic's mastering process, who consolidated the behemoth of a more than 300 track project into a time-space shattering soundscape of cosmic proportions.

KING - New Single Release 'Perception Ignited' - New Album 'Fury and Death' via Soulseller Records

Australian Heavy Black/Deathers KING have revealed the final single for their upcoming third full-length album "Fury and Death", set for release on November 17th 2023 via Soulseller Records.

"Perception Ignited" is streaming here: https://youtu.be/TKNSu1aebQ0

Formed in Melbourne Australia in 2014, KING are an unfaltering and melancholic blackened metal force - keeping the spirit of old while carving a new path, epic while remaining raw, majestic while retaining a primitive atmosphere.

The band consists of Dave Hill (guitars), Tony Forde (vocals), and David Haley (drums) and have recently added long time live bass player Tim Anderson to their permanent line-up. The quartet forge a sound that captures the essence of old whilst fanning the embers of more modern musical influences, seamlessly combining all elements to create their signature sound, cold but uplifting.

KING have released two albums, "Reclaim the Darkness" (2016) and "Coldest of Cold" (2019), both of which have been met with critical acclaim from the metal media and fans alike. The band's sound is a blend of black metal, death metal, and melodic elements, and their live shows are known for their intensity and energy. KING have toured extensively throughout Australia and have shared the stage with bands such as Wolves In The Throne Room, Inquisition, Paradise Lost, Enslaved.

PHANTOM WINTER - New Album "Her Cold Materials" out now via This Charming Man Records - New Video Clip

The new album of German Winterdoom outfit PHANTOM WINTER is out now via This Charming Man Records! "Her Cold Materials" is a coming-of-age folk horror tale about an adolescent woman. The name is derived from Philip Pullman's cycle of novels, “His Dark Materials”, about a teenage girl who must find herself and save her world.

Along with the album release, PHANTOM WINTER have premiered a new video clip for the track "Shadow Barricade": https://youtu.be/1QL6ZrRBUUM

When instrumental Doom act OMEGA MASSIF announced its break-up, members Andreas Schmittfull and Christof Rath reformed under the name PHANTOM WINTER. The aim was to create extreme music. They called the style "Winterdoom".

Melancholy meets cold and anger. The drumming is brutal and staccato-like, reminding on machines and monstrosities. Lots of noise, lots of anger, lots of Doom, Post and even Black Metal elements, apocalyptic scenarios set to music, dense atmosphere, subtle guitar melodies, a bit of drone, sometimes compact and sometimes epic. PHANTOM WINTER weave all these components lovingly and serve the whole outcome on top level with ornaments next to loads of dirt. Their live performances are always intense and angry, visitors like to compare them to church services.

THE WATCHER - Deal with Cruz Del Sur Music - New Album in 2024

Cruz Del Sur Music is proud to announce the signing of Boston classic metal/doom outfit, THE WATCHER. The label will release the band’s first full-length in 2024.

THE WATCHER is the 2016 creation of guitarist/bassist Max Furst, who, after many years of playing darker and heavier styles of metal, wanted to write music that was more driving, epic and up-tempo. Furst embarked on finding the proper musicians, first landing on drummer Chris Spraker. The two promptly began work on the music that would become the “Your Turn To Die” EP. But first, they needed to find a vocalist.

“After years of dead ends and countless ‘no’s,’ I was fortuitously introduced to Paden Reed in late 2020 through a mutual acquaintance,” says Furst. “Paden was the first person to come at the project with sincere enthusiasm, and in July 2020, he sent me a demo of what would become ‘Your Turn To Die.’ I was beyond floored by his delivery of the vocals and his interpretation of the music. I immediately knew we had something special, so we spent the next few months developing vocals for two additional songs from a 2017 instrumental demo. Paden then went into a studio to properly record the vocals; we then mixed and mastered the entire session.”

The “Your Turn To Die” EP finally saw the light of day in 2021. The wait for THE WATCHER was worth it — the EP was warmly received across the metal underground for its tight, immediate songwriting and timeless blend of BLACK SABBATH and NWOBHM. (To boot, all physical copies of “Your Turn To Die” are sold out!)

Furst says THE WATCHER is currently set to finish tracking the album this coming month with Sasha Stroud at Artifact Audio in New York City.
With new tracks on the way along with the promise of future live shows, joining the Cruz Del Sur Music roster is the logical next step for THE WATCHER.

“Finding a label that felt right for the band was tricky,” says Furst. “I was fortunate enough to be put in touch with Cruz Del Sur through a mutual friend. Cruz Del Sur stood out to me because of the wide range of bands they release. While everything is squarely within the scope of the metal genre, each band has a distinct and unique quality about them. Above all, all of the folks at Cruz Del Sur seem incredibly passionate about the music they release. To me, that implies a true personal investment in what they do and that is the most important trait a label should have, in my opinion.”

PHOBOCOSM - New Album 'Foreordained' via Dark Descent Records - Trackstream available

Montréal’s PHOBOCOSM continue their career-spanning collaboration with Dark Descent Records with third full-length "Foreordained", set for release on December 8th 2023.

"Foreordained" is an amalgamation of everything that came before it. A perfectly balanced fusion of the murky death metal depravity of debut "Deprived", blended with the devastating doom of "Bringer Of Drought". Remarkably, this was the plan all along: “When we wrote Deprived, we decided that our first three albums would be a trilogy, so 'Foreordained' is the last chapter of that trilogy. We made a conscious effort to pace all three albums in a similar manner, since we wanted them to be linked - starting with a slow, crushing doom song and concluding with a long, epic, depressive one. It's not a coincidence,” reveals guitarist Samuel Dufour.

As their genre of choice would suggest, "Foreordained"'s lyrical concepts are about death, as well as the futility of denying one’s inherent mortality. Hence the name of the album; meaning predestined, inevitable… “Since death is unavoidable, the end of all life and of our planet is also unavoidable, so there are apocalyptic themes also. The closer 'For an Aeon' is about a possible way the world as we know it could end.”

Wrapped in artwork by the inimitable Lauri Laaksonen of Desolate Shrine, Convocation and Pestilent Hex fame, "Foreordained" is set to be a 2023 death metal highlight.

PHOBOCOSM intend to tour the US and Europe in support of "Foreordained". The band would also like to welcome back guitarist Rob Milley, who will be performing on upcoming tours and future albums.

CARNAL TOMB - New Track Stream 'Embalmed In Decay' via Testimony Records

German Deathers CARNAL TOMB have revealed the title track from their upcoming new album, "Embalmed in Decay".

Check it out at this location: https://youtu.be/U2MlSbYG4gg

"Embalmed in Decay", the band's third full-length, will be released on November 3rd 2023 via Testimony Records on CD, LP and digitally. It was recorded and mixed by Tobias Engl at Englsound in Berlin / Germany and mastered by Sverker Widgren at Wing Studios, Stockholm / Sweden.

On their new album, CARNAL TOMB have honed their songwriting to razor-edged sharpness with slightly shorter tracks compared to their previous releases, fast forward blast beats, and they have also kept some of their characteristic doom-driven passages. It all adds up to a contemporary version of classic death metal with enormous firepower that will cement their status as one of the hottest young acts of this most brutal genre.

This beautifully putrid and rotten manifest of morbidity perfectly channels the spirit of Old School Death Metal!
