MACE 'N' CHAIN - Debut Album 'Among Ancient Pillars' via No Remorse Records - Lyric Video available
MACE 'N' CHAIN was formed in Sweden at the end of 2020 by David Nilsson (singer of Swedish death metal band Feral) to pay homage to the genre that originally got him into metal in the first place: true, sword-wielding, heavy, goddamned, metal!
The debut demo "Upon the Anvil Formed" was released shortly thereafter in 2021 to high praise in the underground metal scene leading MACE 'N' CHAIN joining No Remorse Records, with David Nilsson commenting, "I am extremely honored to be teaming up with No Remorse Records! And I simply could not imagine a better place for MACE 'N' CHAIN than this highly respected label".
"Among Ancient Pillars" is highly recommended for fans of Eternal Champion, Wrathblade, Manilla Road, Cirith Ungol, Brocas Helm, Ironsword, and Manowar. It is raw, epic and thunderous, faithful to epic heavy metal legends, old and new, yet it has the original touch of composer and multi-instrumentalist, David Nilsson. Lyrically, "Among Ancient Pillars" is inspired by a variety of sources including myth and fantasy, literature and the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Jordan, Robert E. Howard. This is just the beginning…
The album will be released on March 24th 2023. It was recorded in Pagan Hell Studios, mixed by Peter Nilsson at Soner Produktion and mastered by Bart Gabriel. The artwork and logo were created by Bram Bruyneel.
A lyric video for the track "The Key to Ancient Riddles" has been premiered at this location: https://youtu.be/XKa_5n-MxzY

PUTRID YELL - Debut Album 'Consuming Aberration' via Pulverised Records - Details and Trackstream revealed
Chilean Death Metallers PUTRID YELL have announced their debut full-length, "Consuming Aberration"!
The album will be released on April 14th 2023 via Pulverised Records. It was recorded and mixed by Cristian Leon at Lion’s Roar Studio (Ripper, Hellish, Dearthsvn, etc), mastered by Damien Herring at Subterranean Watchtower Studio (Horrendous, Suffering Hour, Blood Incantation, Rope Sect, etc) and comes with a brilliant artwork by Putrid Matt (Coffins, Bones, Hooded Menace, etc.).
Cold and reptilian but akin to nails impaling with precision and mastery, PUTRID YELL is the inch-perfect blend of contemporary Swede-saw, proto 90’s outta-control chainsaw sound that fascinated the extreme music world and that undeniable first-gen primal Cogumelo worship; a grating orifice of the absolute radiance of the glorious 80’s South American Black/Death Metal movement.
A first track entitled "Indescribable Evil Instinct" can be streamed here: https://youtu.be/5pwvrrgAt6E

WILD BEYOND - Debut Album via Gates Of Hell Records - Details and Trackstream revealed
Gates Of Hell Records is proud to announce the signing of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, blackened thrash metal outfit WILD BEYOND.
Their self-titled debut will be released on April 14th 2023 and will feature cover art from the acclaimed Adam Burke (ANGEL WITCH, ETERNAL CHAMPION, TEMPLE OF VOID). WILD BEYOND features guitarist/vocalist Edward Gonet (DAEVA, ex-INFERNAL STRONGHOLD), drummer Evan Madden (ex-WOE and WOODS OF YPRES) and bassist/keyboardist/guitarist Jimmy Viola.
The album’s opening track, "In the Footsteps of Mars", and pre-order options are available here: https://youtu.be/hn4Rw0pBWaM +++ https://wildbeyond.bandcamp.com
The idea for WILD BEYOND was born in the middle of the Covid lockdown of 2020, when Gonet impulse-purchased a Randy Rhodes Flying V guitar and started composing after five years of not playing. A year later, with songs and riffs under his belt, Gonet was introduced to Viola and Madden through SONJA drummer Grzesiek Czapla. The trio set forth to compose a full-length album pulsing with destructive cosmic majesty and street metal overtones.
“Back in the day, I used to hang flyers around the city to find musicians to play with, and you never knew who would show up at your house,” says Gonet. “There are fucking mutants all over Philadelphia. I didn’t have to do that this time. The band came together rather effortlessly.”
It wasn’t long, either, that the band fell onto the radar of Gates Of Hell Records. WILD BEYOND’s sound is influenced by the second wave of Norwegian black metal (DARKTHRONE, IMMORTAL) and early thrash (SLAYER, SODOM), with VADER and BATHORY thrown in for good measure.
“Black metal’s mysteriousness and the allure of darkness and evil made it an easy choice to pair with our love of thrash,” the band says. “We wanted to create a classic black metal record, but we also tend to play like speed demons.”
WILD BEYOND’s full length embodies the hyperactive imaginations, anxieties and aggressions of its personnel. This debut will inspire the metal legions to bang their heads, light ceremonial candles in seance, and summon malevolent forces from BEYOND.
“WILD BEYOND speaks to our classic inspirations, but I hope this record sounds like ‘us’ above all,” says Viola. “Eddie’s vocal venom and lyrics are one of a kind. Evan blasts like a battering ram, yet his drum parts are meticulously crafted. And the bass punches through like a frost-covered fist.”

BLAZON RITE - Sophomore Album ‘Wild Rites And Ancient Songs’ - Details and Trackstream revealed
Emerging Philadelphia epic metal heroes BLAZON RITE will release their second album, “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs”, on April 14th 2023 via Gates Of Hell Records.
A first trackstream, entitled "Salvage What You Can of the Night", and pre-order options are available at these locations: https://youtu.be/Nori5AQzqjQ +++ https://blazonrite.bandcamp.com
Recorded in May 2022 with Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations Studios, “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs” is the highly anticipated follow-up to the band’s masterful 2021 debut, “Endless Halls Of Golden Totem”. With scores of ears awaiting the band’s new long player, guitarist James Kirn says BLAZON RITE rose to the challenge.
“We are really grateful for everyone who supported ‘Endless Halls Of Golden Totem’ and hope we made something that people will always go back to,” he says. “The only pressure I think we felt was to deliver something different and fresh from what we’ve already presented to the world. While I think the new album isn’t a huge departure, we did some things creatively with this record that differ from our first full length and push us forward. At times, we simplified things and set out to make songs more hard-hitting and powerful. We really took our time with this album and I think it shows in the quality of the overall product.”
Comprising seven cuts that dig into the ethos and essence of what true metal should be in 2023, “Wild Rites And Ancient Songs” boats BLAZON RITE’s now patented blend of strident guitar melodies and true metal persuasiveness. However, “Wild Rites” emerges as a more direct and catchy offering than its predecessor, something Kirn says was the goal from the start.
“I just wanted to try new things and explore different moods and feelings with this new album. We leaned in so many different directions on this release. We have some traditional power and epic metal elements, some NWOBHM parts, and even folk vibes. I really just wanted to give the listener a wholly memorable experience. We tried to simplify the lyrics and vocal melodies a bit to make them more impactful and anthemic as well. I also think the tones we achieved on this record are great and new for us. I want to mention that Pierson [Roe] took the solos and leads to a new epic place this time around.”
BLAZON RITE rapidly emerged as one of the new leading faces in the American traditional metal scene. The excitement and strong press surrounding “Endless Halls” was significant — and justified. This year promises to be a busy one for the band. Playing as many shows as possible behind “Wild Rites” will be the next step on BLAZON RITE’s epic metal journey.
“We are really amped to hear what everyone thinks of this new album and hopefully, the word spreads even more about us,” closes Kirn. “I think people will appreciate the polish and the development we’ve put on this album. Hopefully, we can get some buzz about the album and play some cool shows with some good lineups.”
