Details On New Album “Keystone” Posted By Klogr

Italian alternative rock/metal band Klogr issued details on the upcoming new record “Keystone.” Slated for release on October 6th via Zeta Factory, the band issued the cover artwork and track listing for the album.

The artwork is a piece of a painting by the renowned Italian artist, Andrea Saltini. On it, Rusty commented: “A while ago, I saw a paint of Andrea Saltini and I was really impressed by it. When the record came to life with its contents, I immediately remembered that painting and thought it would be perfect for our cover. Luckily it was still available and we could use it for our design.” Check it out below.

“Keystone” was recorded at Zeta Factory Studio and mixed at Mainstation Studio in Toronto, Canada, by David Bottrill (Peter Gabriel, Kid Rock, Smashing Pumpkins, Tool). The track listing is:

Dead Asylum Releasing New Album “Death Always Wins”

Melodic death / thrash quartet Dead Asylum will release sophomore album “Death Always Wins” on June 2nd. On the follow-up to 2013 debut “General Carnage,” the Vancouver band has sharpened its songwriting to a fine point and bolstered an established muscular attack with a harder rhythmic punch and an even deadlier arsenal of riffs.

Lyrical themes include revolution and political uprising, the apocalypse, and – as the band name alludes – twisted facets of the human psyche. “Death Always Wins” was tracked at Jam Factory Studios in Port Coquitlam, BC; recorded and edited by Roger Mowat; and mix/mastered by Chris Holmes. Pierre-Alain (3mmi Design) was responsible for the album art.

Dead Asylum will hit the road this summer for an August/September U.S. tour. Stay tuned for details. In the mean time you can pre-order the album here and the full track listing is as follows:

1. Defiance
2. Death Always Wins
3. Between Me and the Grave
4. Bury the Living
5. Forgotten Sacrifice
6. Bred to Die
7. Welcome
8. Inmate 666

Lacerta Announces New Self-Titled Album

Birthed in 2005, prior to the more-recent explosion of tech death, Lacerta paved the way for later-era tech death bands such as Beyond Creation and Archspire, finally releasing a debut effort entitled “Mind Processor” in 2010.

The album, produced by Psycroptic guitarist Joe Haley, combined brutality and brains, with over-arching sci fi themes as the perfect narrative to the clinical-yet-complex compositions.

In the time it would take an astronaut to circle the earth 38,000 times, Lacerta wrote and recorded that debut effort, toured with the likes of Psycroptic and Dreadnaught, and wrote and recorded a brand new sophomore effort.

This latest self-titled album contains eight tracks of death metal architecture that will certainly go on to inform a whole new journey of tech death into the furthest reaches of space. “Lacerta” will drop April 14th via CDN Records and features the following track listing:

1. Pillars Of Deceit
2. Grotesque Design
3. Hell To Pay
4. Incubation Of Tyrants
5. Void Of Shadows
6. Gargantua
7. Molecular Residue
8. Ambiguous Forms

New Album “Elliptic Orbits” Announced By Trilateral

Multi-dimensional progressive metal act Trilateral announced the new release “Elliptic Orbits.” The album drops independently on March 11th. A preview clip can be viewed in the player below.

Trilateral is a progressive metal band with influences as diverse as their music. A trinity of adept and nonconformist musicians, the band is not easily categorized into one simple genre, but that’s exactly what keeps hungry, forward-thinking metal fans interested in their unique sound. Although they integrate various fundamental elements of multiple genres and styles, Trilateral delivers neural depth without mercy to shatter audiences’ expectations of what modern prog metal is truly capable of.

With a unique blend of brutality and jazz-fusion, the band manages to create a vast soundscape within every track that is not typically associated with metal.

“Elliptic Orbits” was engineered and produced by Jacob Goose at Avalon Studios. It was mixed by Nigel Curley at Mindscape Studios and mastered by Siegfried Meier at Beach Road Studios. The logos were created by Nate Mitic of Cosmic Creative Design and the album’s artwork was created by Tom Hilborn.

The track listing for the album is:

1. Dividers of Infinity
2. Cloud Forest
3. Airlock
4. Celestial Bodies
5. Whalefall
6. Fountainhead
7. Nomad
8. Blessed Protagonist
9. Charon
