New Album “Sweet Death And Ecstasy” From Midnight Gets Release Date

Today, Hells Headbangers Records set December 15th as the international release date for Midnight’s highly anticipated third album, “Sweet Death and Ecstasy.” The album will be released on 2CD, vinyl LP, and cassette tape formats.

By now, Midnight needs no introduction. Guided by the twisted muse of mainman Athenar since 2003, this Cleveland cult has been slaying the metal/punk underground with a highly addictive brand of lust, filth, and sleaze, subsequently building up a sizable catalog and garnering a rabid fanbase.

While there’s certainly fanatics for the band’s early EP work, it was Midnight’s debut album, “Satanic Royalty” – released to international fanfare in 2011 by Hells Headbangers – that entered the band’s name into the annals of “classic.” Never one to rush things (nor drop an EP along the way), Midnight continued its underground dominance with “No Mercy for Mayhem” in 2014, further perfecting the signature sound. Now, with the massively anticipated third album, “Sweet Death and Ecstasy,” Athenar and co. return with the darkest and most daring effort yet.

As a taste, check out the new track “Penetratal Ecstasy” in the player below, where a link to pre-order the album resides. The track listing for “Sweet Death and Ecstasy” is:

1. Crushed by Demons
2. Penetratal Ecstasy
3. Here Comes Sweet Death
4. Melting Brain
5. Rabid!
6. Bitch Mongrel
7. Poison Trash
8. Before My Time in Hell

Split LP Announced By Retortion Terror And Invidiosus

Minnesota death grinders Invidiosus are proud to announce a forthcoming split release with Japanese grind beasts Retortion Terror. The self-titled album will be released October 20th via Horror Pain Gore Death Productions. Check out promo videos for “Cultural Indifference” and “River of Ignorance” from Invidiosus and Retortion Terror, respectively, below.

CD Pre-order: Over Here
Digital pre-order: right here

Horror Pain Gore Death Productions presents this intense split album between Japan’s grinding maniacs Retortion Terror and US Death/Grind destroyers Invidiosus! Retortion Terror makes its HPGD debut with five tracks of raw, blistering grindcore straight from Kyoto, Japan. Featuring legendary guitarist Takafumi Matsubara (Gridlink, Mortalized Grindcore) and a mysterious lineup of international grinders, Retortion Terror pull no punches on this split. In 2014, Takafumi suffered a brain infection that made it nearly impossible for him to play guitar, and many thought Gridlink’s “Longhena” might be Takafumi’s last record.

Fortunately, he has beaten those odds; his recovery has been nothing short of miraculous, and he has resumed playing guitar and doing karate in spite of what the doctors told him. This is Takafumi’s first release since that final Gridlink album, having overcome some impossible odds to return to playing grindcore. His work with Retortion Terror shows that he has no signs of slowing down or stopping anytime soon. This is an absolute must listen for fans of Discordance Axis, Wormrot, Noisear and Insect Warfare.

Invidiosus also makes its Horror Pain Gore Death debut on this devastating split release! Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, Invidiosus perform vicious, anxiety-driven death/grind that is absolutely punishing. Invidiosus features current and former members of Amiensus, Rottenness, Violence Condoned, In Defence and Atrum Inritus. The band has spent the last 3 years relentlessly touring Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Bolivia and the USA, with an upcoming tour of Japan and South Korea (including a festival performance at Asakusa Deathfest). Blending elements of grindcore, death metal and thrash, Invidiosus brings a destructive, eclectic style out in full force for their HPGD premiere! Essential for fans of Cephalic Carnage, Phobia, Pig Destroyer, and Brutal Truth.

“This is Karate. This is Grindcore. If the doctors say bad things, I try spinning back kick” – Takafumi Matsubara

The track listing reads:

Retortion Terror:

1. Arcane Dogs
2. Scorched
3. Trench
4. The Line
5. River Of Ignorance

Invidiosus:

6. Cultural Indifference
7. Purpose Defeater
8. OD’d On Technology
9. From The 16th Floor
10. Where Evolution Ends

New Album “Volition” On The Way From Death Rattle

Five years ago, New Hampshire-based groove-thrash band Death Rattle self-released the debut album “Man’s Ruin,” which served as a striking introduction to the fist-in-face outfit that channeled the musical styles of the band members’ favorite bands into sharp-taloned songs that sunk deep. Back, refreshed and heavier than ever, Death Rattle returns with the sophomore full-length album “Volition,” which set for independent release on October 20th. The album is available for pre-order now via Big Cartel – more pre-order options are coming soon!

Watch a brand new Emvison Productions-directed music video for Death Rattle’s politically-minded new single “Love and War,” now via Metal Insider at this location, or in the player below.

Death Rattle performs thrash with a purpose – music that emphasizes groove and lethal riffage over speed and interchangeable guitar parts. It’s a sound bred from the attitude and angst of New England, a region that has faced economic and social strife and frustration time and again. Yet every time it lowers its head and pushes forward, obstacles be damned.

“‘Volition’ is the act of using free will to accomplish something,” says guitarist and main songwriter Ryan VanderWolk. “It’s taken a lot of work, but we’ve been able to overcome a lot of obstacles as a band, so the name has meaning that’s very relevant to our experience.”

With more time to work on and fine-tune the songs on the second album, Death Rattle is able to approach each cut from various musical directions to see what worked best. The band recorded the final tracks appearing on “Volition” at Brick Hithouse studio in Cape Cod, MA with engineer Sean Fitzpatrick over the course of several months.

The track list is:

1. Internal Determination
2. Love and War
3. Sentenced to Hell
4. Snake in the Grass
5. Adrenalize
6. Sociopath
7. Order Within Chaos
8. Unfinished Business
9. Doomsday
10. From Blood to Black

Check out “Love and War” here:

In addition to featuring stronger, more original songs, “Volition” features a high-energy performance that effectively captures the frenzied excitement of the band’s high-impact concerts. “We live for playing live and that’s one thing that we spent a lot of time working at as a band,” says VanderWolk. “We love bands that bring their albums to the stage and come alive. We’ve always tried to do that and now we finally have an album that’s worthy of our live show.”

Death Rattle will support the release of “Volition” on the upcoming tour supporting The Convalescence, Wings Denied and Shaping The Legacy. Death Rattle will appear on dates running from October 21 in Placerville, CA through November 18 in Englewood, OH. See below for a full list of tour dates:
