Details Of New Album “Deliverance From The Godless Void” Posted By Desolate Shrine

Finnish Death Metal trio Desolate Shrine will release the new album “Deliverance from the Godless Void” on November 10 via Dark Descent Records. The album’s opening track, “The Primordial One,” is streaming at the bottom.

It may be Desolate Shrine’s fourth album (third on Dark Descent Records) in six years, but the band shows no sign of fatigue on their newest opus. The band continues to erase the already thin line existing between black, death and doom and once again come out of the abyss with their own instantly recognizable style.

Recorded during 2016 with the same core trio since 2011’s debut Tenebrous Towers, this new beast, while no less epic than its predecessors (three of the seven songs featured here are at over eight minutes long) is even more textured and tortured while at the same time highly atmospheric. And while a track like “Unmask the Face of False” may be the heaviest and slowest they’ve ever done, that doesn’t prevent “Demonic Evocation Prayer” from being transfigured by hellish blast beats either. Still, as with each of their albums, Desolate Shrine’s latest full-length is to be considered like one big entity, almost like a ceremony if you will, one that demands to be experienced from beginning to end without interruption.

The album artwork (shown below) was created by L.L. Dan Lowndes mastered “Deliverance from the Godless Void” at Resonance Sound Studio.

The track listing is as follows:

1. The Primordial One
2. Lord of the Three Realms
3. Unmask the Face of False
4. The Waters of Man
5. The Graeae
6. Demonic Evocation Prayer
7. The Silent Star
8. …of Hell

Eponymous Single Avialable From Dom Zly

Polish act Dom Zly released the new single “Dom Zly” off the self-titled debut EP. The title track is streaming now exclusively via Echoes & Dust at this location, or just by clicking play in the player at the bottom. “Dom Zly” is out on October 13th via Unquiet Records.

Dom Zly was established in late Autumn of 2016 in Pulawy, Poland. The inner need to express oneself about everyday realities surrounding us was the main reason for starting this project. The climate of the music is the result of the band members’ common fascination with alternative music and its broad horizons, inclined more towards the heavier or extreme side.

Dom Zly is the crust vision of a degenerated world, condemning the existing order.

The project consists of members of bands such as Kaldera, Hidden World, The Feral Trees, Weedcraft, Panacea and Words Mean Nothing.

Details Of New Album “We Owe You Nothing” Posted By Forgotten Tomb, New Single Streaming

“We Owe You Nothing”, the ninth studio album from Italian black/doom metal overlords Forgotten Tomb, is set to be released on October 27th in Europe and November 10th in North America via Agonia Records. The album’s title track & first single is available in the form of a lyric video, which you can enjoy at the bottom.

The album marks the highest point in the band’s constant evolution and once more makes it hard to narrow down its sound to some pre-existing labels. Effortlessly blending the eerie, dissonant black metal sound the band is well-known for with muscular sludge/doom riffs and a subtle, nihilistic punk attitude, “We Owe You Nothing” defines the band’s personality more than ever, reaffirming its unique sound.

Starting in the beginning of the millennium with bona fide classics such as “Songs to Leave” (2002), “Springtime Depression” (2003) and “Love’s Burial Ground” (2004) – widely considered among the true originators of the so-called “Depressive Black Metal” sub-genre – the band explored increasingly heavier and broader territories with all the albums that followed, from the genre-shattering avant-garde of “Negative Megalomania” (2007) through the pitch-black rocking-vehicle “Under Saturn Retrograde” (2011), then perfecting the band’s own black/doom formula with the harsher tones of “…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil” (2012) and “Hurt Yourself and The Ones You Love” (2015).

The band commented: “Our discography has always been divided by trilogies. ‘We Owe You Nothing’ closes the third trilogy which started with ‘…And Don’t Deliver Us From Evil’ followed by ‘Hurt Yourself And The Ones You Love’ and it’s the heaviest among the 3 albums, with an emphasis on slower/mid tempos and a sludgier approach while retaining also our trademark melodies and dissonant arpeggios, plus some twists which open new doors to the next era of the band. Due to circumstances surrounding it, it’s been an extremely painful album to make and therefore it’s one of our darkest, while being also filled with raw energy”.

Recording-sessions started in December 2016, with drums being tracked at Big Pine Creek studio in Italy, but were abruptly interrupted when singer/guitarist Ferdinando “HM” M. was involved in a life-threatening car accident that left him unable to play for months. The recording was resumed and completed in May 2017 at SPVN Studio in Italy, while mix and mastering were done in June 2017 at Planet-Z studio (Hadley, Massachussets, USA) by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (Rob Zombie, Six Feet Under, Crowbar, Hatebreed).

The track listing and cover artwork can be found here:

1. We Owe You Nothing
2. Second Chances
3. Saboteur
4. Abandon Everything
5. Longing For Decay
6. Black Overture
