Anima Damnata Inks Record Deal With Godz Ov War Productions / Malignant Voices

A new covenant between Anima Damnata and the unholy Godz Ov War Productions / Malignant Voices syndicate has been signed.

Springing forth from that covenent, an album titled “Nefarious Seed Grows to Bring Forth Supremacy of the Beast” shall flood this putrid world in late autumn.

The album will be available on CD, LP, and digital formats, with the full track listing, cover art, and other details are to be unveiled soon.

For now, the band just released a first single off the new album — check out “Through Abomination ‘Till Ecstasy” below. Godz Ov War Productions comments:

“Saying this album has long been waited for would not be enough. Saying this album has come up expectations would not be enough all the more. Anima Damnata delivers the most evil and furious blackened death metal… Totally killing blast beats, schizophrenic guitar, crushing bass guitar parts and sepulchral vocals make you think of the greatest of the genre!”

Sxuperion Premieres New Music Video For Title Track Of Upcoming New EP “Myriad”

Cosmic blackened death metal unit Sxuperion premieres a new music video for the title track of the band’s upcoming new EP “Myriad”, which will be out in stores September 1st via Bloody Mountain.

Check out now “Myriad” below.

Explains Sxuperion’s sole member Matthew S.:

“Three albums and one EP will conclude the Sxuperion – Cosmic Corridors series of dark, atmospheric death metal and space-ambient music,” “This video that I made for the song ‘Myriad’ is a story of myself as a space traveler that falls to Earth in the present day. I look around, and I guess I don’t like what I see, with the weakening of the human spirit and intellect due to technology and greed and shallow materialistic lust. Or the empty religions warning people not to look with open eyes. I choose to dig deeper into my soul so I can grow and not rely on a false sense of attachment in order to get more attention or more empty ‘things’. I want to destroy that decaying part of our world and travel to the beast within where everything one might need can be found.”

Iron Maiden Adds “Book Of Souls” Arena To Mobile Game

Iron Maiden embarks on the final leg of “The Book of Souls” world tour this weekend, simultaneously launching a synergistic player-vs-player battle arena for the band’s mobile game, “Legacy of the Beast” (reivewed here).

The game offers players a unique way to interact with Iron Maiden’s real world activities by introducing not only a replica of one of the tour stage productions, but also the debut of “The Book of Souls” version of Shaman Eddie into the game, in his Mayan themed incarnation as featured on the band’s most recent studio album. Other characters from “The Book of Souls” are set to follow.

“Legacy of the Beast” is a definitive experience in the mobile RPG space – taking players on an unparalleled, epic, ever-expanding, strategic gaming journey via their smartphones & tablets. Iron Maiden Manager Rod Smallwood says:

“With ‘Legacy of the Beast’ we wanted to create something that appealed both to fans of Maiden music and gamers alike, wherever they are in the world, and I think we are well on our way to accomplishing that. The game has kept true to the band’s history and development not only through their music but with Eddie too. This latest feature focused around our current tour is only the start of many new and exciting innovations we have planned to keep Legacy evolving and becoming even more addictive!”

Adds Llexi Leon, Interactive Creative Director of Phantom Music Management “The towering Mayan set piece of ‘The Book of Souls’ world tour presented an ideal opportunity to expand the game and create a virtual event space to complement the band’s live show – whether you’re seeing Iron Maiden on the road or playing Legacy of the Beast on your mobile, we’ve crafted a gaming experience that explores the Mayan world of The Book of Souls record and marks the first of many timed in-game events that will enrich the band’s touring activity, engaging fans old and new across the globe in a way never before possible.”

Ice Nine Kills Premieres New Music Video “Nature Of The Beast”

Ice Nine Kills premieres a new music video for “Nature Of The Beast”, which takes its inspiration from George Orwell‘s novel “Animal Farm”. Comments frontman Spencer Charnas:

“This video marks the third and final chapter of the video trilogy that began in fall 2015 with ‘Communion Of The Cursed.’ We pick up right where the ‘Hell In The Hallways‘ video ended last spring, continuing to follow the character Kevin as he navigates through the sinister side of the literary classics that inspired our ‘Every Trick In The Book‘ album. This song, ‘The Nature Of The Beast,’ is a tribute to George Orwell‘s classic allegorical novel ‘Animal Farm‘. The message of that book seems particularly relevant, given the dangerous political climate which engulfs our country at the moment.”

Check out now “Nature Of The Beast” below.
