You can’t talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of Ensiferum, and with Two Paths they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths, Two Paths is simultaneously the Finnish quintet’s most epic and far-reaching collection and their most organic, which definitely sets it apart from the pack. Additionally, the album literally takes the concept of Two Paths to heart, with two different versions of standout tracks “Don’t You Say” and “God Is Dead”. “Even though Ensiferum has always had clean vocals and choirs, harsh vocals have been the main style, and those songs worked so well with both styles that we decided to include both versions,” explains bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka. With Mikko P. Mustonen again handling orchestral arrangements and Lassi Logren returning to play nyckelharpa and violin on a few songs, Hinkka is also more than happy that they brought “more bombastic orchestral and down to earth folk aspects” to the record, further fleshing out their vision. This also applies to the contribution of Gyula Havancsak, who provided the artwork for both Two Paths and its predecessor, One Man Army. “It was really nice to work with him again because he always wants to hear our ideas and then he adds his own magic and improvements to them, and the result is always astonishing.”

Two Paths track-listing
1. Ajattomasta Unesta
2. For Those About to Fight for Metal
3. Way of the Warrior
4. Two Paths

At its purest, there is little that can match the visceral thrill and empowering spirit of hardcore.

From the moment the opening title track explodes to life, it’s clear that everyone involved is having a blast and playing from the heart, and that this is no frills / no bullshit music at its most passionate. “In this band we’re doing what each of us have always done: give it our all,” John Joseph states plainly. “We work hard, and we have a lot to say. Look around the planet – people are fed up with the corrupt ruling class. They destroy the planet and kill millions for profit, and the formula for our response is simple: Anger + applied knowledge = results. Don’t just bitch. Change it.”

Execration launches new single, “Hammers of Vulcan”, online

– July 11th, 2017 –

This Friday (July 14th), Norwegian death metallers Execration will release their new album, Return To The Void, via Metal Blade Records. Today the band premieres a new song taken off Return To The Void: “Hammers Of Vulcan” – which can be heard at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jTUs6hfCPTY

For another preview of Return To The Void, the title track and previous single “Eternal Recurrence” can be heard at: metalblade.com/execration – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:
–Digipak CD
–180g black vinyl (EU exclusive)
–grey-marbled vinyl (limited to 300 copies – EU exclusive)
–pot green-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–white/black-splatter vinyl (limited to 100 copies – EU exclusive)
–white/black-marbled vinyl (limited to 120 copies – USA exclusive)
–red transparent vinyl (limited to 100 copies – Hells Headbangers exclusive)
* plus digital options are also available!

“Coming off of two double 12″ vinyl albums, the first clear goal for writing ‘Return To The Void‘ was to deliver the same kind of dynamic and shifting song-writing in a more condensed to-the-point package”, comments Execration. Stripping songs down to their essential core has been a driving force while writing, and it shows – there is not a wasted moment on the album. Ticking in at 42 minutes – a perfect fit for the vinyl format – the album takes the listener through a whirlwind of thrash, death, black, and even heavy metal, fast and slow parts, and the trademark Execration shifts in mood, tempo, and atmosphere.

“As with the previous two albums, we wanted to capture the feel of a live performance, so all the basic tracks (drums, guitars, bass) were recorded live in our rehearsal studio in Oslo over the course of a weekend. Vocals, synths, and various effects where recorded the following weeks with assistance from Andreas Tylden (One Tail, One Head / Altaar). The album was then mixed and mastered by Tom Kvalsvoll of Kvalsonic Labs.”

Thematically, the album takes off into outer space, the world of dreams, and philosophic musings on time and space. The album’s seven songs and two instrumental tracks are permeated with the mysteries of the universe, both in lyrical content and concept, and in the music itself. This theme is further brought to life by the magnificent art of Zbigniew M. Bielak that adorns the front cover.

Return To The Void track-listing:
1. Eternal Recurrence
2. Hammers of Vulcan
3. Nekrocosm
4. Cephalic Transmissions
5. Blood Moon Eclipse
6. Unicursal Horrorscope
7. Through the Oculus
8. Return to the Void
9. Det Uransakelige Dyp

Execration line-up:
Cato Syversrud – Drums
Christian Johansen – Guitar / Vocals
Jorgen Maristuen – Guitar / Vocals
Jonas Helgemo – Bass

New Song “Gates Of Hell” Streaming From Bloody Hammers

The new EP “The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers” is just over a week away from release (July 14th) and Bloody Hammers has opened the “Gates Of Hell” by streaming the opening track in the player below. The physical release is strictly limited to 300 copies.

“The Horrific Case Of Bloody Hammers” desends from the dark mountain peaks of Transylvania. Here somber-sacral organ symphonies slide over cruel hammering staccato riffing. Our master of horror is Anders Manga, who delivers a bombastic, powerful voice over his wife Devallia’s sinister synthesizers. The ice-cold nostalgia of 70’s b-list thrillers shoots through the veins directly into the heart. In “The Beyond” their piercing Gothic sound shifts to a sensual, The Cure-esque brand of pop. A soundtrack for the exploration of past lives

The track listing for the EP is:

1. Gates of Hell
2. Blood (see video here)
3. The Beyond
4. Vultures Circle Overland
5. All The Colors Of The Dark
6. The Bloodsucker Leads The Dance
