The Offering Signs Record Deal With Century Media

Century Media Records is proud to announce the worldwide signing of The Offering. The group’s self-titled debut EP was produced by guitarist Nishad George, with engineering help from Grammy award-winning engineer Mark Fuller, and mixed and mastered by Andre Alvinzi and Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.

Check out the EP’s opening track “Rat King” below, and stay tuned for the five track release to officially drop November 10th digitally. The Offering’s first full-length studio album is scheduled to drop in summer/autumn 2018.

Century Media Records comments: “Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts the five players behind The Offering first came together in Tampa, Florida to invent their signature version of progressive, furious, and technical power metal with a strong death and thrash approach.

“The wild mixture of elements from many metal genres puts The Offering G in a class of its own: deep musical compositions, extreme, adept vocal performances, a powerful modern sound, and profound song arrangement separate The Offering from the metal pack. This is modern heavy metal for open-minded listeners who can imagine a hybrid of Nevermore, Death, At The Gates, Psychotic Waltz, Control Denied and Iced Earth.”

The Lurking Fear Releases “The Starving Gods Of Old” Video

Swedish death metal group The Lurking Fear will soon release debut album “Out Of The Voiceless Grave” worldwide. The album is set to drop next week on August 11th, 2017 via Century Media Records.

A new single entitled “The Starving Gods Of Old” is being launched today via a lyric video created by Costin Chioreanu / Twilight 13 Media, based on the album’s artwork by Stefan Thanneur. Check it out below.

The Lurking Fear’s vocalist Tomas Lindberg commented: “So, for the next video clip we had the idea of letting our old friend Costin work on it, but having him use Stefan’s amazing cover artwork. I think Costin really captured the eeriness of the track ‘The Starving Gods Of Old’ perfectly. It feels like you are thrown into the darkened void of the starving gods themselves, being devoured by them alive, while getting your ears blasted by another serious dose of twisted death metal madness. The song is like an anthem to what lurks beyond this world. Like watching an old 70´s horror movie on a worn out VHS cassette.”

Grave Pleasures Posts “Infatuation Overkill” Video

Finnish apocalyptic post-punk quintet Grave Pleasures is ready to unveil the first new offering of music from upcoming sophomore release, “Motherblood.” Check out a music video for debut single, “Infatuation Overkill,” in the player below.

“This song draws first blood, where desire reaches fever pitch,” divulges vocalist Mat McNerney, “‘Infatuation Overkill’ is a picture of the current zeitgeist in free-fall. Our voyeurism, our all consuming ego, our absolute fixation with our own image and our descent into a commonly accepted form of mass schizophrenia. Obsession and omnipresent violent lust have become the norm as mania begins to seep into our intrinsic make-up. We attempt to portray the feeling of being pulled apart as the volcano erupts on our species and the dawn of man begins to draw to a close.”

Scheduled for release on September 29 via Century Media Records, “Motherblood” features ten hook-laden tracks as well as guest vocals from David Tibet of Current 93. “Motherblood” was recorded at Orgone Studios in the U.K. with Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Ulver, Paradise Lost) which was situated on the site of an old WW2 coding bunker.

Video Clip For New Song “The World Is Yours” Issued By Arch Enemy

Arch Enemy fired off the first single from “Will To Power” in the form of the music video for “The World Is Yours.” Check it out in the player below.

The highly anticipated follow up to “War Eternal” is finally ready to be unleashed on September 8th via Century Media Records.

Mastermind Michael Amott comments, “We’ve been hard at work on the new album for a while now and we’re proud to present the first taste of new Arch Enemy music in over three years with our new single and video, ‘The World Is Yours’! This was the first song I wrote for the upcoming ‘Will To Power’ album and Daniel (Erlandsson, drums) helped me arrange and finish it up. One of many songs we co-wrote and co-produced this time around. We had a blast recording together with the full band in the south of Sweden and then mixing with Jens Bogren, who did a superb mix and mastering – in my opinion even surpassing the epic sound on our previous record, ‘War Eternal’. People that have heard this song in particular are saying it’s got the classic anthemic Arch Enemy vibe going on, and I think they might be right about that… Looking forward to playing it live on stage later this summer!”

The track list for the album is:

1. Set Flame to the Night
2. The Race
3. Blood in the Water
4. The World is Yours
5. The Eagle Flies Alone
6. Reason to Believe
7. Murder Scene
8. First Day in Hell
9. Saturnine
10. Dreams of Retribution
11. My Shadow and I
12. A Fight I Must Win
