Paragon Collapse Premiere New Song “A Whisper of Destiny” From Upcoming New Album “The Dawning”

Listen to a new track, “A Whisper of Destiny” below:

Paragon Collapse – The Dawning by Paragon Collapse

Here’s what the band had to say about the album:

“The Dawning does not necessarily want to convey a message, but it is up to the listener to identify and interpret a possible message. Although the lyrics of the songs describe various states and inner living, alternating between love and madness, hope and suicidal depression, we would like each listener to live each song individually, to understand them from the perspective of their own experiences, and if after listening to songs, the listener does not remain indifferent, it means that our goal has been reached.

As for this painting, the viewer can sense the meaning of it right from the title. The first light is so much more than the twilight before the dawn. In this case, dawn is the absolute truth we tend to as people, that beautiful truth, also highlighting the fact that existence takes place between two extremes, lies and truth. The first extreme is made up of a life full of harmony, of pure beauty, but which is forgotten and thus destroyed. The second extreme represents the uglier side of life, lies and hatred, whose appearance of masquerade deceives and seduces man. These two opposites define our lives, the dichotomy in which we lead our existence, the struggle that we carry from birth to death. The true beauty of life is so intangible, too far away, far too lonely, too forgotten, waiting for the dawn of absolute revelation.”

Tracklist:

01. The Endless Dream
02. The Stream
03. A Whisper of Destiny
04. Nirvana
05. Climbing the Abyss
06. A Winter Life
07. Deliverance

Triptykon/Former Celtic Frost Frontman Tom Warrior Comments On Martin Ain’s Death

Following the news earlier today that former Hellhammer and Celtic Frost bass player Martin Eric Ain has died at the age of fifty, his former bandmate Tom G. Fischer (AKA Tom Warrior,) has posted his thoughts online via his blog.

“I am deeply affected by Martin Eric Ain’s passing. Our relationship was very complex and definitely not free of conflicts, but Martin’s life and mine were very closely intertwined, since we first met in 1982. My life will be painfully incomplete without his existence.

“Today, when Reed and I talked about Martin’s death on the phone, Reed said to me: “Now, there’s only the two of us.” It completely broke my heart.”

Conveyer Debuts Title Track From Upcoming New Album “No Future”

Conveyer debuts the title track from the band’s upcoming new album “No Future”, which will arrive in stores on June 23rd through Victory Records.

Check out now “No Future” below.

Comments vocalist Danny Adams :

“‘No Future‘ is the title track for the record because we felt it had to be as straight-forward as the meaning behind it. Human beings are meant to exist in a perfect place, but we’ve somehow deprived ourselves of the desire to venerate perfect things. I’m constantly reminded that I’m unequipped to accept that my existence is limited to this life. It’s also not a typical sounding Conveyer song – we wanted to bleed out some older influences like Buried Alive and Figure Four.”
