First Single “Her Feet Upon The Earth, Blooming The Fruits Of Blood” Posted By Aosoth

French black metal devotees Aosoth premiered the first single from the fifith studio album “V: The Inside Scriptures,” which is due out on November 17th via Agonia Records. Listen to “Her Feet Upon The Earth, Blooming The Fruits Of Blood” in the player below.

Aosoth is the second project of vocalist & lyricist MkM (the founder of Antaeus) evolving in the black/death metal genre. While Antaeus sets boundaries for violent, grinding black metal, Aosoth delivers more dissonant and 90’s death metal elements combined with the work of guitarist & producer Bst (The Order Of Apollyon, VI), who composed the music on the album. The duo is accompanied by bassist INRVI (the founder & mastermind of VI) and Saroth (Hell Militia, Temple of Baal) on second guitar.

“V: The Inside Scriptures” is a closing chapter of AOSOTH’s musical and lyrical concept. Distinctive and downright suffocating, the album shows many differences to “III” & “IV: Arrow In Heart”, the two previous full-length releases, especially in terms of atmosphere. The recordings took nearly three years and were interrupted by many events in the personal lives of MkM & Bst. At some point, the album was about to be abandoned and never released.

The drums for “V: The Inside Scriptures” were recorded by T. at Hybreed Studios (Temple Of Baal, Glorior Belli, VI). All other instruments were recorded at BST Studios. Mixing & mastering were done at BST Studios as well, while the painting adorning the album cover (shown below) was created by Benjamin A. Vierling (Nightbringer, Weapon). Layout and additional photography was done by Somnyum. AOSOTH’s logo was prepared by Erik Danielsson of Watain.

The track listing for the album is:

1. A Heart To Judge
2. Her Feet Upon The Earth, Blooming The Fruits Of Blood
3. The Inside Scriptures
4. Premises Of A Miracle
5. Contaminating All Tongues
6. Silver Dagger And The Breathless Smile

Sliptrick Records Welcomes Sacro Ordine Dei Cavalieri di Parsifal

Italian metal act Sacro Ordine dei Cavalieri di Parsifal (Sacred Order of Parsifal’s knights) has signed on with Sliptrick Records for the band’s debut full length studio album “Heavy Metal Thunderpicking.” Details of the album will be revealed soon.

Sacro Ordine dei Cavalleri di Parsifal was born in north Italy in the province of Gorizia in 2001 from an idea of two longtime friends: Paolo Fumis (vocals) and Carlo Venuti (guitar). The group’s sound is an epic, evocative, but at the same time, powerful and solid heavy metal in the style of old school bands such as early Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Manowar and Candlemass.

10 years on from the first demo “Sacro Ordine” in 2005, the band made a comeback of sorts in 2015 with a live CD (“Live 2015”), which was a mixture of old glories and brand new metal hymns. In 2016, the band started to record it’s first full length studio album, “Heavy Metal Thunderpicking.” The album containing eight tracks of classic heavy metal which will soon be unleashed!

Title Track Of New Album “Early Cvlts” Streaming From Natvre’s

MetalSucks is offering an exclusive early stream of “Early Cvlts,” the title track to the second LP by Thessaloniki, Greece-based black metal trio, Natvre’s, as the record nears release on October 27th through Argento Records. Check it out at this location, or simply in the player at the bottom.

Combining mid-tempo, over-saturated riffs with feral blast beats and lacerating vocals, Natvre’s creates a hateful maelstrom of terror and controlled chaos that is impossible to forget. The Hellenic commandos now offer the torrential maelstrom of the second proper full-length, “Early Cvlts,” the album showcasing the band’sterrorizing yet supremely infectious ’90s-inspired blackened arts through eight methodical songs recorded at Stelth Sound Studiosand completed with artwork (shown below) by Luca Devinu.

The band offers with the “Early Cvlts” advance stream, “This song is what Natvre’s is all about. It’s the song on the album that has the biggest punk influence and it’s a sort of statement against the narcissism and pseudo avant-garde attitude that is quite popular in Black Metal today. It’s a song about reality and self-liberation through following the path that leads to the depth.”
