Dawn Of Disease Reveals New Album “Ascension Gate”

Since 2003, Dawn Of Disease has rumbled its way to the top as heavy weights of Germany’s death metal scene. Now the band returns with brand new album “Ascension Gate,” featuring a hurricane of blast beat drumming and the gigantic voice of Tomasz Wisniewski.

“Ascension Gate” is set to be released on August 11th, 2017 through Napalm Records and will be available in CD, LP gatefold, and digital download formats. Pre-orders will be available soon.

Says the band: “‘Ascension Gate’ was created and given birth within a comparatively short lapse of time. Thus it embodies pure energy and raw intensity. In comparison to our former releases our fourth full-length album is different in many ways as it modifies and expanses the musical elements we used to employ before.

“Besides the typical Dawn of Disease trademarks you will find more elaborate melodies that carry the listener through an atmospheric journey. Inspired by gloomy autumn days and the sheer endless darkness of winter ‘Ascension Gate’ adds more depth and catchiness to our sound than ever before without neglecting a huge portion of blastbeating brutality. Regardless of this dark and melancholic leitmotif we can promise you one thing: ‘Ascension Gate’ will bring you a very hot summer!”

01. Passage
02. Perimortal
03. Leprous Thoughts
04. Beneath The Waters
05. Ascension Gate
06. Akephalos
07. Fleshless Journey
08. The Growing Emptiness
09. Lucid
10. Mundus Inversus

Mirrors Of Obsidian Unveils “From One Form” Album Artwork

Dublin, Ireland’s extreme metal act Mirrors Of Obsidian has unveiled the artwork for forthcoming debut full-length album, “From One Form,” via a brand new video clip.

The clip also features brief audio samples of the band’s debut single, “Neutral Disease,” as well as crushing upcoming single, “The Core.” Mirrors of Obsidian, which is comprised of instrumentalist, Eoin Ennis, and vocalist, Ciaran Ennis, had the following to say:

“We recently released our debut single, ‘Neutral Disease,’ and the reaction so far has been fantastic. Our second single, ‘The Core,’ is set for release on October 3rd, and while it still retains the intensity of ‘Neutral Disease,’ fans can expect a change of pace, layered vocals and some odd time signatures. We’re also extremely delighted to reveal the artwork for our forthcoming album, From One Form, which is set to see a release early in 2017. The artwork was designed by Eoin and I feel it really compliments the atmosphere of the album’s music and lyrics.”

Eoin adds: “Inspired by the lyrical concept pervading From One Form, the artwork symbolises a shift in consciousness. A celestial alignment has occurred, the eclipse has passed and a new dawn is here. Nothing has been created or destroyed, things have only changed from one form to another.”

Incite Posts “Life’s Disease” 360 Degree Music Video

Incite released brand new album “Oppression” in late April via Minus Head Records. The album features the track “Life’s Disease,” which Incite is bringing to life today via a new 360º virtual reality video.

Video director Robert Sexton states, “Incite’s ‘Life’s Disease’ is the first-ever concept-driven heavy metal video shot in VR. We trapped the audience in various 360º environments where we built an occult underworld packed with imagery that’s designed to whip viewers into a state of frenzy. The visual action is designed to draw attention to specific details of the narrative and performance, but the audience can also explore the space on their own terms.

“VR is defining the future of both shared viewer experiences and storytelling. We’re pioneers in this space. Every piece of content we create forces us to reinvent everything we know about filmmaking and how an audience interacts with a story.”

The track features Minus Head labelmate and All Hail The Yeti lead vocalist Connor Garritty, who also makes a guest appearance in the music video. Richie Cavalera discusses the music and Garritty’s cameo:

“Life’s Disease is a song that I feel everyone can relate to! Whether old, or young, a metal head, or not, you’re going to dig this song. The vibe is unlike any Incite song before – it’s very chuggy and has a bass line that crushes, not to mention our labelmate Connor of All Hail The Yeti brings some killer screams to it so it just became an instant stand out on this record.

“This 360º VR video will set it apart from everything else. We have always pushed our videos to be pure art and leave you speechless. Videos are huge to us and this one is our monster. It’s very dark and next level for sure – possessions, insane asylums.”

Incite will begin the second leg of a tour with headliners DevilDriver and special guests Holy Grail and Hemlock on June 13th, headlining three dates prior.

6/8 – Austin, TX @ The Dirty Dog – no DevilDriver; Incite headlines
