Today, Australian black/death cult Denouncement Pyre have announced the completion of their highly anticipated third album, Black Sun Unbound. The album will be released during the first quarter of 2016 by Hells Headbangers - with whom Denouncement Pyre have renewed their contract, and through whom the band released its prior two albums, 2010's World Cremation and 2013's Almighty Arcanum - ahead of the band's performance at Maryland Deathfest. Again recorded at I-HQ studio outside of Melbourne, Black Sun Unbound will feature 10 tracks of black/death metal on which the band has built its unmistakable foundation. As an album, Black Sun Unbound is dark, wild, and untamed, yet also the most varied and diverse recording in Denouncement Pyre's 12-year history.
A band statement reads: "Black Sun Unbound is the most challenging album we have created so far, and we have certainly ventured further into the inner darkness with the new material, through a long and demanding creative process. The writing and recording of this album involved a lot of experimentation, and we have seen a vast range of ideas included, more so than past releases; it is a different album to the first two. Expect new doors to be unlocked and old gods to be awakened!"
Contrary to many of their peers, DRACONIAN’s sound has remained steadfast to its origins, in particular, the powerful vocal growls of Anders Jakobsson. This is one of the band's defining and most unique features, along with newcomer female vocalist Heike Langhans sensitively interwoven melodies. These Swedish Gothic Metallers have premiered a new lyric-video from the upcoming album entitled SOVRAN, which is ready to enthrall on October 30th worldwide!
“Rivers Between Us“ is the new track that celebrates its video premiere today! Check out the track HERE!
We’ve already known it and anyone remaining to be convinced will finally be convinced today: Odin Owns Ye All!
Swedish Viking / Folk metallers MANEGARM have premiered the video “Odin Owns Ye All”, which can be found HERE!
MANEGARM remain expressive and varied from the first note to the last on their upcoming selftitled album; will hit the stores on November 20th. From folk ballads reminiscent of campfires to wild and forceful black metal interludes, everything the metal sounds of the north are known for is represented. Those looking for the soundtrack to life, as a seafaring warrior will get just the thing!
CONAN's upcoming album Revengeance kicks in with warm, fuzzy, low-tuned guitars. This UK-based three-piece is capable of unleashing a raging maelstrom of sludge, crust-caked doom, and mammoth droning. Even though they are on their third album, CONAN remain as pissed off as ever. The album is the end result of mixing monolithic bad tempers, powerhouse eternal riffs, and arson-like vocals – "Revengeance" will be released worldwide on January 29th 2016!
The band comments: "REVENGEANCE is a collection of songs that we (Jon, Chris and Rich) are really proud of. These tracks were written in the period between October 2014 and September 2015 and we're excited to get them out into the open. The album will contain one or two surprises but one consistent factor is our eternal devotion to heaviness. We are looking forward to playing these songs live at a venue near you, see you there......"

Old school Swedish/Icelandic Death Metallers UNDER THE CHURCH, featuring former members of the iconic NIRVANA 2002, have tapped Noisey for the premiere of "Rabid Armageddon." The title track off the band's forthcoming full-length debut can be heard for the first time at: http://noisey.vice.com/blog/under-the-church
UNDER THE CHURCH will release Rabid Armageddon October 30 on Pulverised Records. Pre-orders are now available at the following links:
CD pre-orders: http://pulverised.bigcartel.com/
Digital pre-orders: https://pulverised.bandcamp.com/album/rabid-armageddon
Be forewarned, the vultures are circling around this grim chapel - the Swedish old guard UNDER THE CHURCH have unearthed the latest sepulture "Rabid Armageddon". Once featured as FENRIZ's Band of the Week, UNDER THE CHURCH have truly stepped it up a notch with remarkably catchy hooks and their already recognizable corpse-decaying Death Metal stench! "Rabid Armageddon" is proof once again that crass-ridden and obscene Swedish Death Metal is still a winning formula and shall eternally reign supreme. Artwork and layout by Mattias Frisk (Ghost, Vanhelgd, Entrapment, Vampire, etc).
Since their inception in 2010, the ascent of Jess and the Ancient Ones has been astounding. With a chart-toppingly successful debut album in 2011 and the occult surf metal EP Astral Sabbat (2013) under their collective belt, the group won over many new followers on their North American tour with King Diamond last winter. Since then, the collective have thinned their herd from seven to six, and spent months with minds locked inwards together, perfecting their craft and cultivating what was to become their second album.
This autumn equinox, it was signaled that the hour of the Second Psychedelic Coming had come at last and work on the album complete. And what rough beast it is!
Jess and the Ancient Ones' "Second Psychedelic Coming: The Aquarius Tapes" will be released on CD, double LP, and digital formats on December 4th via Svart Records. Thomas Corpse, responsible for songwriting duties, comments on the great work: "We have been following our natural need to explore different forms of musical impression, and so again our sound has evolved one step further. I must say that the change is most welcomed, for we are not the likes who like to stay in a strangling doctrine of genre rules of any sort. Music should never be composed in order to please a crowd. The most important thing is that the composing element is pleased with the outcome, for only then it may also bring true joy to the ears of the listener. This album has its errors, and we want them to be there. They are us. They are the sound of our current state."
Donald and John Tardy are stoked to announce the first confirmed bands for Florida Metal Fest, a new annual metal festival, held on Saturday January 30, 2016 at The Cuban Club in historic Ybor City, Florida. The festival will see many of your favorite Florida bands return to their roots in the heart of the death metal world as MALEVOLENT CREATION and DEICIDE take the stage, along with OBITUARY and many more bands from the sunshine state that will be announced soon. The Tardy Bros. promise you are in for a real treat!
Since this is a music festival not just about Florida bands but for Florida metal fans, Obituary have also invited some of their favorite bands to the Bay Area and mix it up a bit. MADBALL is one of the sickest NY hardcore bands out there, longtime friends of Obituary and always bring an explosive live performance. Obituary are excited that Madball are ready to head south to Tampa to 'Set It Off'!! And of course, no redneck stomp would be complete without a little southern metal, so we are honored to welcome the legendary COC featuring the king of the rotten himself, Pepper Keenan!
John Tardy about Florida Metal Fest: "My brother and I have been so fortunate and thankful to be part of some the best and biggest music festivals in the world. The amount of people, bands and energy these festivals can bring is just awesome. From the first time we played one it has always been a dream of ours to put together a music festival that is not only fun for the fans, bands and crews, but one that also brings a closeness to all involved. After years and years of talking about it, we finally decided the time is now. We want to put together a first class festival. From the venue to the PA, from the lights to the lineup we are trying our best to make this as memorable event as possible. No festival, anywhere in the world, even with the best possible lineup, would work if the area does not support it. I think that Tampa, and it surrounding cities, is a great music area and one that is ready to make this event come to life.”
