Bloodbath Premiere New Track “Bloodicide” – Carcass, Ex-Bolt Thrower & Cancer Members Guest

Bloodbath premire a new track called “Bloodicide”. The song is off of their upcoming new album, “The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn“, out October 26th via Peaceville. Guesting on this new track are Jeff Walker (Carcass), Karl Willetts (Memoriam/ex-Bolt Thrower) and John Walker (Cancer).

Comments Bloodbath‘s frontman Nick Holmes (also Paradise Lost) :

“The lads play a part in representing the backbone of the old school British Death Metal scene, which has also been a big influence on Bloodbath since the beginning.”

Says Jeff Walker:

“I owed Nick a tenner, so he told me instead of sending the bailiffs round he would kindly let me pay off my debt by contributing vocals to his new album. Imagine my great disappoint when I found out it wasn’t for THAT band but, was in fact for Bloodbath. I have great faith in him that my vocals will be lower than his in the mix.”

Adds Willetts:

“I have known Nick Holmes for over 30 years – so when he asked me to do some vocals for the new Bloodbath album how could I refuse? The opportunity to do things like this in life don’t often come twice so I am really pleased to contribute in a small way to this legendary opus!”

States John Walker :

“Bloodbath is an amazing band and I’ve had the chance to do some vocals for their new, killer album along with eff Walker and Karl Willetts. It’s been a bloody honour and a lot of fun!!”

Unflesh Announce Debut Album “Savior” & Share Trailer

Unflesh is proud to announce their debut record, Savior, which is set for release on May 25th. Savior will strongly appeal to fans of Arsis, Dissection, Necrophagist, Naglfar, Emperor, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Obscura, Dimmu Borgir, Alterbeast, and Revocation. You can listen to an extended Unflesh- Savior album teaser video below:

Unflesh Vocalist/Guitarist Ryan Beevers says regarding Savior:

“I’ve always thought of the band as having a kind of mixed sound of 90’s black metal and more technical death metal bands. Since the band started I just called us “Extreme Metal” because it’s a broader label. I never thought the sound of the band would be described as just black metal or death metal. When the first EP “Transcendence to Eternal Obscurity” came out, most people seemed to identify the sound as technical death metal. This album is one more step forward in molding the sound of Unflesh, musically and lyrically the “Savior” album is a lot darker and more aggressive than our previous EP.”

Dimmu Borgir Reveals New Album Title And Release Date

Over seven years, deathlike silence has filled the halls of the world‘s biggest black metal forge, Dimmu Borgir, whilst powers have been gathering to resurrect the band right in time for their 25th anniversary. Now they finally mark their return with a vicious work of art that can be defined as timeless in the truest sense of the word: Eonian.

The song writing core of Dimmu Borgir furthermore consists of charismatic vocalist Shagrath, as well as the string wizards Silenoz and Galder, but other familiar faces also emerge from the darkness; drummer Daray and keyboarder Gerlioz are still part of the team, and Gaute Storaas helped with the choral arrangements for the majestic voices of the Schola Cantrum Choir.

The cover artwork was designed in fascinating detail by Zbigniew M. Bielak (Ghost, Behemoth, Mayhem).

This tenth full-length record will see the light of spring on 4th May and it will contain 10 new tracks, produced by the band itself and engineered by Jens Bogren. Emerging from the dark minds of the three songwriters, Eonian follows a philosophical concept, dealing with the illusion of time:

“Time, when not approaching it from the construct we’re used to can’t be defined and thus it is illusory”, explains axemaster Silenoz. “There’s only an ‘eternal now’, which the album title is already hinting at. When we travel between the worlds seen and unseen, the perception of time ceases to exist, it has no function. Our energy is our torch and our compass when we make rifts and pierce through the veil – when we go beyond.”

Vocalist Shagrath adds: “Eonian represents the illusion of time, everything that is and always has been. For us, it also marks the 25th anniversary of Dimmu Borgir and the album itself is a tribute to our own history and the Norwegian black metal history.”

On February 23rd, Dimmu Borgir will unveil their first single ‘Interdimensional Summit’ which will be released as a 7” vinyl EP, providing a first taste of the upcoming album.

The EP contains the new track ‘Interdimensional Summit’ as well as ‘Puritania (Live In Oslo)’ and will be available in red & clear, and gold vinyl colors.
