Enthroned Reveals New Album “Cold Black Suns” Details

Black metal formation, Enthroned, have are streaming the first single from their new album, Cold Black Suns, which will be released via Season Of Mist on June 7. The song, “Silent Redemption,” can be heard below.

The band comments: “We’re proud to introduce our first single, ‘Silent Redemption’, from the upcoming album, Cold Black Suns. This track unveils one of the many layers of the long awaited 11th opus. With ‘Silent Redemption’, we take you along to Aokigahara, the infamous Suicide Forest in Japan, to walk amongst the Yurei. While keeping our band’s trademark, this new album offers another pitch in the music, soaking the listener in bleak and fury.”

Enthroned is surely a name black metal fans are no strangers to. Over the course of the last 25 years, they have pushed the boundaries of black metal and the deepness of the Left Hand Path philosophy further within. The quintet has channelled that dedication into their newest record. Cold Black Suns is a dark and crushing black metal album where cold riffing, blood chilling atmospheres, and ritualistic drumming are keys to forging their most mature and accomplished opus to date.

The band, who crawled out of the black lands of Belgium in 1993, inked their first contract less than a year after its formation, and recorded debut album Prophecies Of Pagan Fire, which is now considered an all-time classic in the genre.

By then known as The Blackened Horde to fans and the scene at large, Enthroned recruited guitarist Nornagest and within two years entered Hautregard Studios to give birth to their second album. After the recording, tragedy struck and founding member and drummer Cernunnos (1997) took his own life.

The band went on to record the album using Cernunnos’s drum tracks from rehearsal recordings which were recorded by long time friend Da Cardoen, from the Belgian band Asphyxia. Towards The Skullthrone Of Satan was thus born. Since then, Enthroned went on to tour the world and have released a total of 10 full-lengths, one live album, and a hearty handful of splits and EPs.

Now, as the band celebrates 26 years as one of black metal’s premier outfits, they are ready to unleash number 11 onto the masses. Cold Black Suns is an icy, brutal offering from the band that will see a worldwide release on June 7 via Season Of Mist, making it their debut to the label. This is the band’s first album in five years, following up 2014’s critically acclaimed Sovereigns.

Tracklisting:

1. Ophiusa
2. Hosanna Satana
3. Oneiros
4. Vapula Omega
5. Silent Redemption
6. Aghoria
7. Beyond Humane Greed
8. Smoking Mirror
9. Son Of Man

Cult Of Luna signs worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records

– March 20th, 2019 –

Announces European tour

Photo credit: Silvia Grav

Metal Blade Records is proud to welcome Cult Of Luna to its worldwide roster! For almost 20 years, Cult Of Luna have imposed themselves as one of the world’s leading post-metal lights. Constantly evolving, the band pushes the genre’s boundaries from album to album so as to explore the darkest and mistiest, as well as the driest and most abrupt, landscapes.

Cult Of Luna comments: “We’re thrilled to announce our collaboration with Metal Blade and the creation of our new home: Red Creek, that will handle Cult Of Luna‘s future productions. This is a dawn to an exciting journey to come.”

Cult Of Luna hasn’t debuted any new material under their sole name since Vertikal 1&2 (2013). In 2016, the Mariner album – which was made in collaboration with Julie Christmas (Battle Of Mice, Made Out Of Babies) – was released, and praised by both fans and critics. A DVD, entitled Years In A Day, followed in April 2017, which also saw much success.

Stay tuned for more news about Cult Of Luna‘s first album in several years – and their Metal Blade Records debut – coming soon!

Recognized for their apocalyptic live performances that unrestrainedly explore the audience’s imagination, transposing music-triggered sensations visually, Cult Of Luna will bring their stunning live show to fans across Europe later this year – appearing at both festivals this summer, as well as headlining a tour in Nov./Dec. with A.A Williams.

You can check out the music video below. “Nova” will be available on April 5th, 2019 via Arising Empire. In addition the band announces their album release tour for May.

Pre-order the new album “Nova” here

Polar states: “Midnight is a song about coming of age and sexual awakening. It is written about a personal experience I had at 15 which forced me to understand sex mentally and physically in a unnatural way. This song has been therapeutic to me and I hope it allows people who hear it to be honest with themselves and deal with their inner demons. Our new album ‘Nova’ musically and lyrically has been therapeutic for all us, we came to point where we all needed a release and this is the product of that. We hope listeners can relate to this record and make steps to finding inner peace as much as us.”

King Diamond releases DVD/Blu-ray, ‘Songs For The Dead Live’, today worldwide

– January 25th, 2019 –

Today (January 25th), King Diamond has released a new DVD/Blu-ray, Songs For The Dead Live, via Metal Blade Records.

There is only one King Diamond, and for more than thirty years the great Dane has been dropping classic albums and putting on shows fans remember for the rest of their lives. Perhaps the only downside to having such a formidable catalogue is that there are just too many great songs to fit into a single set. However, you would be hard-pressed to find a fan who wouldn’t want to hear 1987′s seminal Abigail in its entirety, and Songs For The Dead Live captures this, twice, and in very different locales. The performances of the all-star lineup of musicians, comprising of guitarists Andy LaRocque and Mike Wead, bassist Pontus Egberg and drummer Matt Thompson, are absolutely ferocious, hammering home every single moment.

To preview and purchase Songs For The Dead Live, please visit: metalblade.com/kingdiamond – where Songs For The Dead Live is available in the following formats:

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals Recruits Former Cattle Decapitation Bassist Derek Engemann

Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals are pleased to welcome former Cattle Decapitation bassist/current Scour guitarist Derek Engemann to the lineup.

Engemann – who takes the place of bass comrade Walter Howard (Grieved, Oppressive Force, Vaginal Bear Trap etc.) – will make his live debut with The Illegals beginning next week on the band’s Latin American tour where they’ll be performing Illegals tracks alongside a selection of Pantera hits.

Comments Anselmo of the new addition, “Derek is a brother; he’s solid, driven, and talented. It’s awesome to have him onboard and I look forward to jamming and writing with him. We’re lucky to have him.”

Adds Engemann, “I’m very excited to share the stage with mi hermanos in The Illegals! It’s also truly an honour to pay such a great tribute to Dime and Vinnie!”

In March, the band will make their way to Australia and New Zealand on the Thrash Blast Grind tour with Australian grind practitioners and Housecore Records labelmates King Parrot. The journey marks Anselmo’s first visit to Australia in over five years and includes a headlining set at Slayfest in Perth March 23rd. Additional support will be provided by Palm (Japan) and Potion (Australia).

The summer months will find Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals playing a host of European festivals including Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium, Hellfest in France, and Metaldays in Slovenia, with more performances to be announced in the weeks to come.
