Subterranean Masquerade Posts “Nomad” Lyric Video

Six weeks prior to releasing upcoming album “Vagabond,” Israeli / Norwegian prog metal band Subterranean Masquerade releases the lyric video for new single “Nomad,” which is the second track of the upcoming opus.

Tomer Pink (guitars) comments: “‘Nomad’ is one of the earliest tracks written for ‘Vagabond.’ It’s heavy, progressive, mixing all the elements from which this album is made of and kicks ass live 😉 The lyrics tell the story of visiting a far away place, trying to run away from inside demons until eventually facing them.”

The lyric video was created with the talent of Rafael Ortega. With the band now signed to the Swedish label Vicisolum Records for a two album deal, “Vagabond” is set for release on September 1st.

Subterranean Masquerade features members of Orphaned Land and Green Carnation, mixing prog rock with psychedelic 70’s sounds and full force death metal. The album was mixed by Christer Andre Cederberg (Anathema, Tristania, etc.) and mastered by Tony Lindgren at Fascination Street Studios. The artwork was created by Ben Danzig and Travis Smith.

Wage War Premieres New Song & Video “Don’t Let Me Fade Away” From Upcoming New Album “Deadweight”

Ocala, FL’s metalcore outfit Wage War premieres a new song and video titled “Don’t Let Me Fade Away”, taken from the upcoming new album “Deadweight”, which will be out in stores August 04th via Fearless Records. Recording sessions for the release took place with Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, The Word Alive) and A Day To Remember vocalist Jeremy McKinnon handling the production duties.

Check out now “Don’t Let Me Fade Away” below.

States guitarist/vocalist Cody Quistad:

“We are so thrilled to finally announce our new album, Deadweight. We’ve put so much time, effort, and emotion into making what we think is the best and truest Wage War album. Lyrically, it’s the most vulnerable and honest we’ve ever done. Musically, we really pushed ourselves on the heavy and melodic sides of our band. “Stitch” was an insight to the heavy and now we give you a melodic answer, ‘Don’t Let Me Fade Away.’ This record was exceptionally hard to pick singles for because of how much time and work we put into making every song a great one. ‘Don’t Let Me Fade Away‘ was always a stand out from the beginning. It’s all the elements that make up our band in one song, and in a perfected state. We’re very excited for all that’s ahead!”

Mentor Releasing “Guts, Graves, And Blasphemy” Album

Mentor – featuring members of Thaw and J.D. Overdrive – will release “Guts, Graves and Blasphemy” on September 15th, 2016. Arachnophobia Records comments:

“The name might be new, but the individuals behind it are no strangers. Three out of four members have recently been beating the hell out of Europe’s stages with the dissonant black metal sensation Thaw. Now joined by singer Wojtek Kaluza (J.D. Overdrive), the pack provide another unholy challenge for the audience who miss the fuckin’ animal in metal and grew fed up with its artsy incarnations.

“In times when the majority tend to categorize music by coming up with the most bizarre tags and shoving it all the way through pigeon holes, Mentor’s blasphemous and straightforward emanation of heavy music’s essential traits appears like a spit in the face. Enforcing the idea of a sonic porn for those who like it fast and heavy, ‘Guts, Graves and Blasphemy,’ Mentor’s debut full-length offering is a highly explosive cauldron merging the elements of black/thrash metal, hardcore punk and plain rock’n’roll.”

Hallowed Butchery Working On New Album

It’s been years since we heard anything solid from the criminally unknown Hallowed Butchery, but it would appear all that’s about to change soon. Band mastermind Ryan Fairfield just issued this update via the band’s Facebook profile:

“I think I am finally ready to make the follow-up to the first record. I wrote and recorded a 2nd full-length years ago but I never finished it and I never released it. It just didn’t feel right. It wasn’t Hallowed Butchery. It didn’t have the elements that made people love that first record so much.

“It’s taken me time to realize that. But, I do now. And I’m hungry, man. I’m really hungry to make another record. It’s festering inside me, and it’s only a matter of time before it bursts out like a fucking explosion.

“Time to dust off the guitar and get to work. It’s been far too long…”

Départe Premieres New Song “Vessel” From Upcoming New Album “Failure, Subside”

Australian progressive blackened metal outfit Départe premieres a new song entitled “Vessel”, taken from the band’s upcoming new album “Failure, Subside”, which will be out in stores October 14 via Season of Mist.

Check out now “Vessel” below.

Comments frontman Sam Dishington:

“Our new track ‘Vessel’ is a reaction to deeply entrenched feelings of isolation and futility. It deals with the despair of being stranded in that place, that void, and even still finding peace, stillness, and victory, drawing you out into the light. From a musical standpoint, ‘Vessel’ is quite broad, touching on many of the elements you can expect to hear throughout the rest of the album. Dark, crushing and dissonant, yet in the same breath powerful and emotive.”
