Technical Brutal Death Metallers REPULSIVE DISSECTION will release their second full length album "Church of the Five Precious Wounds" on October 1 via Sevared Records. New song "Apostasy (Ideological Dysphagia)" is now streaming at this location.
The follow-up to the band's 2009 album "Cut Open the Aberration" crushes, kills, and decimates!
A new addition to the band is Dave Billia (Italy) from SEPTYCAL GORGE/PUTRIDY on drums. Dave joins previous members Tom Bradfield (UK) from TWITCH OF THE DEATH NERVE on vocals, Yura Kowalchuk (Ukraine) from EZOPHAGOTHOMIA on guitars and Viktor Prokofjevs (Japan) ex-BLUDGEON, on bass.
The sixth studio full-length from French Dark Extreme Metallers OTARGOS, titled "Xeno Kaos", will be released on November 13 via Kaotoxin Records, with preorders starting on October 12 at www.kaotoxin.com/shop.
Completing their stylistic shift towards a unique kind of Dark Extreme Metal started with their previous full-length, "Apex Terror", OTARGOS are back stronger than ever with a brand new approach, as dark as before but more intense, heavier, still as fast and catchy, but with more diversity thrown in through background industrial noise and samples, a wider spectrum of extreme arts which includes Black Metal, Death Metal, Dark Metal and more... a very personal approach of darkness somewhere between BEHEMOTH, SEPTICFLESH and THE AMENTA.
The first teaser for "Xeno Kaos" has been posted at this location.
Five years removed from their acclaimed debut album, the maniacs of Grave Ritual have re-emerged from the crypt with "Morbid Throne". The band's newest burnt offering delivers nine tracks of blasphemous, old-school death metal in the vein of Incantation, Death and Autopsy. Dark Descent Records will release "Morbid Throne" October 30 on CD, LP and digital formats. Cover art for the album was done by Daniel Desecrator.
Formed from the ashes of Alabama bred duo Meathole Infection in 2009, Grave Ritual's sole purpose is to create dark and primitive death metal. The band's self-titled demo was released in 2009. A year later, Dark Descent Records released Grave Ritual's first full-length album, "Euphoric Hymns from the Altar of Death". Since the release of their debut album, Grave Ritual has focused on perfecting their devastating live assaults, sharing the stage with such bands as Proclamation, Revenge, Black Witchery, and Inquisition. They have played Rites of Darkness II and III, as well as several appearances at Destroying Texas Fest. The band is now stationed in New Orleans. Grave Ritual's highly-anticipated second full-length album, "Morbid Throne", is set for release in late 2015 on Dark Descent records.
San Francisco Bay Area darkness-obsessed DIY indie label Sentient Ruin Laboratories is extremely proud and honored to announce the debut release of Spanish avantgarde blackened death metal monstrosity Altarage. The only known fact about this band is that they come from Bilbao, Spain, and that their music is some of the most fucked, hallucinating and surreal death metal you will hear all year. Other than that, nothing about this band is really known. But when you hear this band's savage and hellish music you realize that nothing else matters other than the music itself. Altarage's music infact opens voids... Portals to other dimensions, revealing worlds of fathomless wretchedness and of unimaginable horror. In a similar way as seen in bands like Portal, Ævangelist, Mitochondrion, Antediluvian, Abyssal, and Teitanblood, Altarage also are forgers of death metal of the most twisted and hallucinated craft - of extreme metal of the highest technical and visionary order. Their unbelievable technicality and musicianship are a mere conduit, a medium to the immense aural devastation this band can summon. A simple vessel that can carry the listener from the safety of reality to the nightmarish musical hell that lies beyond Altarage's sonic vision, and to which the band wants to drag you with their insane pandemonium of coiled and tangled riffs.
MMXV Demo is Altarage's debut offering, the first statement of an artistic power so great that one is left to wonder what will come next - what could ever follow such a wretched spawn of musical madness. Coming in a limited edition cassette tape co-relesed in collaboration with Sol Y Nieve Records, MMXV Demo will also see a digital release, with both versions dropping on September 27th 2015.
Altarage's MMXV Demo drops on September 27th - and can now be pre-ordered HERE.
DEVIL YOU KNOW has partnered with Impericon (G/A/S), Revolver Magazine (US) and Metal Hammer (UK) to exclusively debut the vicious new track 'Stay of Execution', which is also the first look into their highly anticipated sophomore recording effort "They Bleed Red", set for a Nov 6th release (see official track-listing below) through Nuclear Blast.

Francesco Artusato (guitars) states: "This one was definitely a song that happened unexpectedly. The point was to make a ‘heavy' song (of course, haha) that would have a lot of hooks and cool parts, but not fallowing a typical structure so we had fun trying different things. We have the black metal part, the groovy part, an epic chorus, cool bridge section, gang vocals at the end, etc. It’s literally a bit of everything. I wrote the main riff while walking in a mall somewhere while on tour. I was humming it into my phone so I would remember it for later. It was a weird day, haha."I’m just so excited for this new record. It’s a beast! I can’t wait to start playing the new material and the next tour with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and PAPA ROACH in Europe this November is going to be massive!”
The reigning kings of thrash, SLAYER, have released their first album in six years, "Repentless", today via Nuclear Blast.
"Repentless" is SLAYER’s first new studio album since 2009’s critically-acclaimed, Grammy-nominated »World Painted Blood«. The twelve songs were produced by Terry Date and recorded between August 2014 and mid-January 2015 at Henson Studios in Los Angeles.

The international press is very postive about the new SLAYER record:
"Who needs changes? SLAYER will be SLAYER forever!"
Metal Hammer (E), Joaquin
"Thanks to SLAYER, there are still reasons to be alive. Ironically provided by the deadliest band on the planet! Still reigning!"
Metal Hammer (PL), Maciej
"Probably the most awaiting album this year…SLAYER without Jeff? It is possible and it is killing! Everything fits together - is cast in stone. For all haters, SLAYER is alive and well! You will find everything you love about SLAYER! Music speaks for itself!"
Spark (CZ), Vlada
"Repentless, tireless, mercyless!"
Le Parisien (F), M. Valentin
"Rough, powerful, fast and heavy! A bold band as creative as ever!"
Metallian (F), L. Bendahan
The first music video from "Repentless", the title track, also makes its global premiere today at RollingStone here!
Napalm Records is proud to announce the signing of PHANTASMA, the new Symphonic Rock musical of Charlotte Wessels (DELAIN), Georg Neuhauser (SERENITY) and Oliver Philipps (EVERON).
PHANTASMA was born from the longstanding ambition to create a story driven concept record of Georg Neuhauser, vocal force behind Tyrolean Symphonic Metal outfit Serenity. He found his partner in crime with multi-instrumentalist composer, producer and vocalist Oliver Philipps (Everon) who gladly embarked on this new mission that allowed him to reconnect with being a musician in the first place, as a welcome change from working for other bands, which he has done extensively over the years, providing the rich sound connoisseurs of the genre have come to expect from him. As Oliver worked with DELAIN since their debuting record, a request at Charlotte Wessels’ address was made to complete the dynamic trio of PHANTASMA. To introduce Charlotte Wessels to any connoisseur of Symphonic metal would be like carrying coals to Newcastle - she is, after all, since 2005 the vocal figurehead of Dutch grandees DELAIN. It is therefore not only surprising, but also gratifying that Charlotte now even found some leisure time, to lend not only her voice to PHANTASMA but also her debut novella “The Deviant Hearts” - which was written especially for the project.
Dave Wyndorf and his henchmen seemingly had the time of their lives when they completely rearranged and boosted Last Patrol 2014 and christened it Milking the Stars: A Re-imagining of Last Patrol!
Now MONSTER MAGNET go back even further to 2010 and their Mastermind album. Even if you know the album inside and out you won`t be prepared in the slightest for the trip that is Cobras and Fire (The Mastermind Redux): just think of the beast Apocalypse Now turned into in its Redux form. Familiar elements drift by and are swallowed whole by thundering psych orgies – Wyndorf often focuses on a singular song fragment and turns it into his ride to total Nirvana. Go look for your daily dose of average rock elsewhere: this is the mindfuck of the year!
View the latest lyric-video for the track “Watch Me Fade” along with a brand new interview with MONSTER MAGNET leader Dave Wyndorf HERE!

The band based around singer Erik Grawsiö unveils a first audio snippet of the upcoming studio album HERE – Månegarm is set to be released on November 20th on Napalm Records!
From Swedish folk ballads reminiscent of campfires to wild and forceful black metal interludes, everything the metal sounds of the north are known for is represented on this album. Those looking for the soundtrack to life as a seafaring warrior will get just the thing with Månegarm.
