Chaos Moon Premieres New Song “The Pillar, The Fall, and The Key (I)” From Upcoming New Album “Eschaton Mémoire”

Philadelphia black metal unit Chaos Moon premieres a new song entitled “The Pillar, The Fall, and The Key (I)”, taken from the upcoming new album “”Eschaton Mémoire”, which will see release on November 17 through Blood Music and Fallen Empire Records.

Check out now “The Pillar, The Fall, and The Key (I)” below.

Explains Chaos Moon:

“This section sets the tone for the duration of the album, regarding intent and imagery. Everything is crafted with the aim of each listener experiencing it in their own unique way. Revealing too many details about the words and notes chosen and meanings behind them start to defeat the purpose set in motion during this track. Speaking vaguely, this piece is the ignition of the end on this plane and others; physically, spiritually, and beyond our comprehension. Capturing that urgency. The beginning of rebirth and the unraveling of consciousness and the ego.”

Emperor Complete Works Boxed Set Released

Remember that Emperor complete discography boxed set announced by Blood Music back in ’14? It’s finally finished and been shipped off to all the lucky bastards who jumped on it while it was still available. The label issued this announcement:

“Nearly 4 years from start to finish, the Emperor official ‘The Complete Works’ box is finally finished. All production parts finished and shipped to everyone from whom payment was received.

“A huge thanks to everyone who pre-ordered this set and patiently waited during the entire ordeal. Needless to say, every single person who worked on this set was driven completely insane by it. That’s not hyperbole whatsoever, this set kicked the shit out of everyone who touched it.

“In the end, it took around 30 trips to the post office where I took up the entire back area to the point that the postal workers couldn’t even move around for several days.

“I honestly wish more people could own the set, but due to the entire logistics of it and the sparing no expense portion of its production, it’s only going to remain in the hands of a limited amount of people, sadly. When you build something where money is no object, that’s the unfortunate side effect. But the response so far has been incredible – I’ve heard many times over that the value to quality of the box set was very well worth it.

“It was the first project I designed top-to-bottom. And probably going to be my last too, haha. Need to give a huge thanks to Seempieces | Illustration & Design by Travis Smith, Ken, and Samoth – they all helped me achieve what I wanted in various invaluable ways and were all driven completely insane by it as well.

“There’s no chance I’ll ever do another box set like this again, and I’d be surprised if any other label does anytime soon. Pro tip: it’s financially not worth it, haha. So, please enjoy it. It will remain on sale during my break, and I’ll ship out any of them ordered/paid every few weeks or so. I’m absolutely delirious now, so I’m going to go back to that fabled break I’ve been talking so long about.”

Blood Music Comments On Bandcamp ACLU Fundraiser

Yesterday – Friday, the 3rd – Bandcamp donated all the company’s profits to the ACLU, and a horde of bands and labels also joined in to further donate all their individual profits for the day. One such label was underground metal champion Blood Music, which just issued this statement:

“OK – that was pure insanity! The fundraising is over but was an INSANE success!! The breakdown – Bandcamp estimated that it was going to bring in about $1 million for the day. Meanwhile, Blood Music’s high fundraising goal was 600 EUR net. However, it looks like we brought in FOUR TIMES THAT – somewhere between 2500-3000 EUR (!!!!) in gross revenue. Estimates:

“Blood Music (Bandcamp revenue side) – around 300 USD of the receipts raised will be donated by Bandcamp.

“Blood Music (label revenue side) – around 2500 USD of the receipts raised will be donated by the label.

“That is an estimated 2800 USD that we raised to donate in one day. I will go through all the transactions one-by-one within a week or so and start sending off the donations. And I’m going to throw in an extra 50 EUR on top of the label’s own money just to participate as well.

“The craziest news of all? Bandcamp estimated it will donate 120,000 USD. If we donate 2500 USD extra we’ll be adding more than 2% to the entire total of Bandcamp’s donations. That is HUGE considering the amount of users / labels / artists on the site! This was just one page out of many thousands on Bandcamp, so we made a SERIOUS dent.

“Thank you to all of you. I will make an update in the future once everything has been calculated and paid out. I would expect *somewhere* around:

“850 USD to ACLU (protecting Americans’ civil liberties – from right to left)

“850 USD to Doctors Without Borders (delivering emergency aid to anywhere in the world it is most needed)

“850 USD to No One Left Behind (protecting foreign combat interpreters who have helped American armed forces in battle)

“I know some people here were against the entire cause, but just know that most of us are here, able to appreciate music of all styles and freely use the internet and express ourselves (even calling people ‘faggoty’ as one eloquent gentleman put it) because of rights and safety already devised by generations before us and constantly maintained.

“I believe a lot of people are taking this for granted, the goal is to preserve these rights and to continue to solve complex world problems together. I’m pretty sure insults never solved anything. Thank you to all for participating in this and hopefully you got a lot of great music out of it!”

Astronoid Signs With Blood Music To Release New Album

Astronoid just inked a record deal with Blood Music to release a new album next year. The label comments:

“Blood Music is extremely proud to present to its roster – Astronoid! The astronomically-themed ‘dream thrash’ Boston five-piece twists through intense tremolo-picked galaxies, condensing soundscapes from a wide variety of artists – Alcest, Devin Townsend, deafheaven, Dragonforce – to a single and very unique core.

“With two acclaimed EPs under their belt, the band has been hard at work on their debut album for more than two years. Nearing completion, the record considerably ups the ante on the band’s previous material, bringing in a gloss of soaring major key atmospheres alongside constant, intense, galactic shredding – eliciting something so familiar yet so unique.

“The record is in fact so accessible, yet like nothing I’ve ever heard before. The band’s debut album is in the final mixing, mastering, and layout stages and will be ready for an early 2016 release through Blood Music.”

Emperor Releasing “The Complete Works” Box Set Via Blood Music

Blood Music has issued the following announcement about releasing a box set featuring the discography of Emperor:

“Blood Music is extremely, incredibly proud to announce the greatest extreme metal band of all-time to its roster – Emperor!

“We’ve been working behind-the-scenes for more than a year – carefully compiling every detail of Emperor’s oeuvre from the minute they began in 1991 until their final breath in 2007. We are working directly in conjunction with the members themselves to compile the most incredible, beautiful, and archival collection one could ever imagine into a massive COMPLETE WORKS box set, due to be released in approximately one year.

“This will be the first time the band’s music will be properly remastered for vinyl, as well as presented in true vinyl special editions of any kind. An insane honor for us to take part in.

“Start saving your money this minute. The box set will be a one-time only, limited edition pressing. There will be no copies of our records outside the box set this time. This will be a unique offering that will make a massive mark upon the history of metal and quickly vanish into thin air.

“Oh, and it will be the largest metal vinyl box set of all-time (beating out our Moonsorrow set) and one of the largest vinyl box sets ever created in the history of music. So really … if you want in on this. Start saving now. Early-to-mid 2015.”

The Emperor lineup has also reunited this year for a series of live shows celebrating the 20th anniversary of “In The Nightside Eclipse.”

Öxxö Xööx Inks Deal With Blood Music

Blood Music has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Öxxö Xööx:

“Blood Music is extremely proud to welcome to its roster, one of the most hauntingly beautiful artists we’ve ever encountered – Öxxö Xööx. Utilizing equal parts Mozart, David Lynch, and Ministry – this incredibly unique and operatic project is the brainchild of Öxxö Xööx – the singer of Whourkr’s debut album ‘Naät’ – and features flawless production and programming duties by Igorrr – the darling of the breakcore scene.

“Operatic in scope, utilizing programmed harpsichord as one of the main instruments, mysterious ‘Twin Peaks’ dark pads [reverberating to infinity], with unexpected glitch breakbeats, hyperactive doom metal riffs, and one of the most haunting vocal performances on the planet – this project puts Blut Aus Nord to task for king of Normandy’s electro-metal scene.

“Add on top that the centerpiece of the band is an invented language, which already has a dictionary of several hundred words.

“This is only the second project to ever ‘cold call’ us that we’ve signed on, and we’re damn excited to present the band’s debut album – ‘Rëvëürt’ – on vinyl for the first time in history. We will also have a good handful of CDs autographed by the band.”
