Details Of New Album “Nebulos” Issued By ZOM

U.S heavy rock act ZOM revealed the cover artwork and track listing for the highly anticipated new album “Nebulos.” The album will be released as a CD and digital download via Argonauta Records able from January 19, 2018. This is highly recommended if you like Melvins, Tad and Soundgarden. Preorders run over at this location.

ZOM is a monstrous force of heavy rock ‘n’ roll full of stinky, stoner grooves and grab-you-by-the-throat hooks. ZOM goes straight to the gut and doesn’t hold back on its relentless attack on the senses.

ZOM was born in 2014 when experienced and multifaceted music vets Gero von Dehn (Monolith Wielder) and Andrew D’Cagna (Brimstone Coven) joined forces. Eventually Ben Zerbe (Monolith Wielder, Mandrake Project) was added to the mix to form the current trio.

The track listing for “Nebulos” is:

1. Nebulos/Alien
2. Burning
3. Gifters
4. Solitary (see video clip here)
5. The Greedy Few
6. There’s Only Me
7. Bird On a Wire
8. Final Breath
9. New Trip

We can’t wait to hit the road and spread the word of the Coven to those who have not yet witnessed our live ritual…See you this summer! Behold! Believe!”

Brimstone Coven will be touring in support of their recently released album, Black Magic. Boasting gritty, groovy riffs (a la Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Led Zeppelin) with Pink Floyd-ian psychedelic movements, and three-part vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Mamas and Papas, Yes, and The Byrds, Black Magic has been hailed as “…kick-ass dark occult rock!” (PureGrainAudio.com). To preview and purchase the record, please visit: metalblade.com/brimstonecoven

Metal Blade Records launches new edition of “6 Bands in 60 Seconds”

– March 14th, 2016 –

In conjunction with RED Music, Metal Blade Records has launched a new edition of the “6 Bands in 60 Seconds” campaign, where CEO Brian Slagel spotlights six artists from the label’s roster every three months. The goal of the promotion is to help fans discover new music from some of the most promising acts in the scene. The latest installment of the series features Brimstone Coven, Ketzer, Gehennah, Accuser, Artillery, and Sourvein; to watch the video clip, and to learn more about the artists, please visit: metalblade.com/6bands

Hailed as “kick-ass dark occult rock” (PureGrainAudio.com), Brimstone Coven released their new album, Black Magic, this past January. Boasting gritty, groovy riffs (a la Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Led Zeppelin) with Pink Floydian psychedelic movements, Black Magic also includes three-part vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Mamas and Papas, Yes, and The Byrds, resulting in “an outstanding genre album, bound to enthuse countless listeners!” (Legacy Magazine, Germany). For more information, please visit: facebook.com/brimstonecoven

Ketzer (German for “heretic”) also released their latest album, Starless, this past January. From sounds of raging fury, to the echoes of calm and cleansing waves, Starless is a record that will take you on a journey that is unexpected, yet familiar at the same time. As Decibel Magazine asserts, “What Ketzer have done on ‘Starless‘ is open up a large swath of potential musical territory, while also managing to understand the confines of their origins. They’ve figured out a new vocabulary.” For more information, please visit: facebook.com/ketzergermany

After nearly 20 years, this past February marks the first full-length release (Too Loud To Live, Too Drunk To Die) from Swedish street metallers Gehennah, since 1997′s Decibel Rebel. “If you’ve ever wondered what Motorhead riffs sound like backwards, or you believe spirit – and spirits! – are more important than musicianship, then Gehennah are your new favorite bar-brawling bruthas” (Decibel Magazine). For more information, please visit: facebook.com/gehennah.metal

Last week, German thrashers Accuser unleashed their 11th full-length, The Forlorn Divide, featuring the band’s trademark blend of powerful thrash metal, virtuoso guitar-work, intricate drum patterns – and of course, gripping, harsh vocals, highlighting the dark recesses of human psyche that are described in the lyrics. After 30 years in the scene, the members of Accuser have perfected their signature style: “The younger generation could learn a thing (or ten) from these gentlemen” (DeadRhetoric.com). For more information, please visit: facebook.com/Accuser2008

On March 25th, Danish power-thrash metallers Artillery will unleash their new album, Penalty By Perception. A familiar, yet modern thrash attack, Penalty By Perception delivers the band’s signature riffing, with powerful drumming and melodic singing – and promises to be a new fan favorite in the quintet’s storied career! For more information, please visit: facebook.com/ARTILLERY.DK

For over two decades, Sourvein front-man T-Roy has pushed through poverty, the deaths of friends and family, bouts of severe depression, periods of alcohol abuse, and an absence of the stability provided by a consistent record label to build the band into a highly respected force in the metal, doom, sludge, and crust underground. At long last, Sourvein has found a proper home for their doom-laden Southern noise with Metal Blade Records, who will be releasing their upcoming full-length, Aquatic Occult, on April 8th. For more information, please visit: facebook.com/SOURVEIN-238932972468

To watch the first “6 Bands in 60 Seconds” video (which included Act of Defiance, Rivers of Nihil, Twitching Tongues, Culture Killer, Visigoth, and Harlott), please visit: youtube.com/watch?v=07bXkEq4Mtg

Brimstone Coven releases new album, ‘Black Magic’, today worldwide via Metal Blade Records

– January 29th, 2016 –

West Virginian dark occult rockers Brimstone Coven have released their new album, Black Magic, today worldwide via Metal Blade Records! To purchase the record in various formats – and to hear Black Magic in its entirety! – please visit: metalblade.com/brimstonecoven.

Formed only four short years ago in Wheeling, West Virginia, Brimstone Coven self-released Brimstone Coven and its follow-up II in 2013, before Metal Blade inked a deal and packaged both releases as a single set, entitled Brimstone Coven (2014). Inspired by the Appalachian’s darkness and mysticism (such as the Mothman, a winged creature that emerged in the ’60s; Screaming Jenny; and the Phantom of Flatwoods), the quartet’s heavy rock also pushes the atmospheric envelope when the mood fits. Their latest album, Black Magic, boasts gritty, groovy riffs (a la Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Led Zeppelin) with Pink Floydian psychedelic movements, and three-part vocal harmonies reminiscent of the Mamas and Papas, Yes, and The Byrds.

Read on for some reviews of Brimstone Coven‘s critically acclaimed new album:

“…kick-ass dark occult rock!”PureGrainAudio.com

“Such quality as displayed on ‘Black Magic‘ cannot be found anywhere else in this genre, except in the works of Swedish act Witchcraft: dark, heavy, lethargic – yet full of harmony and incredibly energetic!”Metal Hammer magazine (Germany)

“An outstanding genre album, bound to enthuse countless listeners!”Legacy magazine (Germany)

Black Magic track-listing:
1. Black Magic
2. Black Unicorn
3. Beyond the Astral
4. As We Fall
5. Upon the Mountain
6. Slow Death
7. The Seers
8. The Plague
