EMPYREAN THRONE unveil upcoming debut details


From the whispering shadows, the Chaos Gnostic order of Empyrean Throne has reawakened once again. This time the American symphonic black metal band from Lake Forest, California returns with its first full length record “Chaosborne“, scheduled for release on January 24th, 2017. A tyrannic offering of symphonic black metal malice, “Chaosborne” is a monolith to the potential of Empyrean Throne and a testament to the shear force of auditory punishment the band is capable of harnessing, lurching deeper into the infernal depths of black metal and higher unto the celestial realm of orchestral concert music.

СМУТА released new single

SMUTA - Smuta

Russian folk pagan metal band Смута (Smuta) has recently released a new single, which is self-titled to the band’s name “Смута“! A video for the song has been already shot; it is being edited right now and will be published soon. The band members were repeatedly asked about the name of the group and its meaning to them. They think this song is the answer to these questions and reveals their relationship to the very idea of “cмута”, which they consider timeless and not tied to any historic events like the “Time of Troubles”, as they have told before. Smuta is extremely difficult times in the history of their (and not only their) Motherland, whether it is 10th, 17th, 20th or 21st century, it is the times of pain, suffering, spite, permissiveness and anarchy.               Read more

It will be out on  February 3rd, 2017 via I, Voidhanger Records as a jewel box CD with a 8-page full color booklet complete with lyrics, limited to 300 copies. As it was with its predecessor, “Arrayed Claws” is an accumulation of ultra-electric and dissonant melodies standing out against colossal guitar-walls, often shattering into psychedelic, mind-expanding dark ambient codas. But where “Subconscious Metamorhposis” was a transcendental Read more

THE FLIGHT OF SLEIPNIR reveil upcoming album details


American metallers The Flight of Sleipnir  are are very pleased to announce that their new album titled “Skadi” will be released on January 20th, 2017 through Eisenwald Records. Following on the heels of the 2014 album “V”, the 6th full length “Skadi” shows the Colorado individualists more focused and settled.

There is a certain fresh simplicity in structure, though the further you delve in, the more complex and soaring it becomes. From pulsing waves Read more
