Porta Daemonium Releasing “Serpent Of Chaos” On Vinyl

Blood Harvest Records has set March 31st as the international release date for Porta Daemonium’s debut album, “Serpent of Chaos,” on vinyl LP format.

Porta Daemonium formed in Santiago, Chile in 1998 under the name Porta Salominiis. After several years, due to the designs of Hell to keep the essence of blackened, deathly metal music alive, in 2011 the band changed names to Porta Daemonium.

This is not a band that usually plays live or releases music in a physical format; in fact, to date, the group’s recordings have all been largely self-released and digital. However, that will now change with the vinyl release of debut album, “Serpent of Chaos” after being released digitally last year.

1. Zazas Zazas Nasatanada Zazas
2. Via Sinistra
3. The Blood of the Dark Madness
4. To the Left of God
5. A las primordiales serpientes del caos
6. The Apep’s Chaotic Dreams
7. Porta Daemonium
8. Under the Sigils of the Fallen Angels

Serpent of Chaos 12″LP by PORTA DAEMONIUM

Black Mare Announces Record Store Day Split With Lycia

Magic Bullet is pleased to unveil two brand new and exclusive tracks from Los Angeles, California’s Black Mare and Mesa, Arizona’s Lycia.

Black Mare is the dark ambient solo project of Ides Of Gemini front woman, Sera Timms. On “Low Crimes,” bandmates from Ides Of Gemini and Mustard Gas & Roses (MGR) contribute to the sonic journey; an aurally lush, yet glacially-paced cruise through Timms’ frozen world wherein she encourages the mind’s eye to notice relics like the feathers of fallen angels scattered about the snow.

Lycia initially came to prominence back in the late ’80s and ’90s with groundbreaking darkwave and ethereal wave styles featuring heavily reverbed guitars, dark/ethereal keyboard tones, and ominous programmed drums that pushed the gothic scene forward.

The title goes immediately out of print after Record Store Day (April 18th). Exclusive cover art and insert art by the bands themselves round out this frostbitten slab of wax.

Armageddon Rev. 16:16 Inks Deal With Pitch Black Records

Pitch Black Records is extremely proud to announce the addition of Armageddon Rev. 16:16 to its artist roster and the release of upcoming album, “Sundown on Humanity,” on March 11th, 2014. The label comments:

“Armageddon Rev. 16:16 (aka Armageddon) is the longest living and most respected Cypriot metal band. The scene veterans were formed in 1985 and have kept active since then, mainly with their continuous live presence as well as their demo and EP releases. Of course their renowned 1993 s/t 12” EP needs no introduction as it is now considered a truly hard-to-find, major collector’s item internationally.

“‘Sundown on Humanity’ is actually the band’s first full length album after all these years, making this album an even more highly anticipated release! The band’s style remains true to its original beginnings of melodic classic heavy metal with some power and progressive elements fused in their style.

“The album line up sees original members Jimmy Mavrommatis on vocals, Kikis A. Apostolou on lead guitar and Elias A. Andreou on rhythm guitars joined by accomplished musicians Nikolas Papaeftychiou on bass and Kerry Elgar on drums (replaced recently by Evangelos Varnava).

“‘Sundown on Humanity’ includes guest appearances by Bob Katsionis (Firewind) on keyboards and guitar, Nicholas Leptos (Arrayan Path, Warlord), Tasos Karonias (R.U.S.T.) and Andreas Paraschos (Blynd) on vocals. Bob Katsionis also mixed and mastered the album at his own Sound Symmetry Studio in Athens, Greece.

“Featuring 12 tracks, ‘Sundown on Humanity’ clocks in at just over 58 minutes! Special mention should be made to the closing track of the album, ‘Icy Blackness (Kursk),’ a tribute to the crew of the Russian submarine ‘Kursk’ that perished in the summer of 2000. This song includes yet another guest appearance, that of Petros Leptos (Solitary Sabred), who lends his voice to create a haunting spoken intro.”

The full track listing is as follows:

1. E.K. 40 (Intro)
2. Human Sundown
3. Shades of Tomorrow
4. Strange Dreams
5. Fallen Angels and Lost Souls
6. Hypocrites of Destruction
7. New Day Will Come
8. 13-Seventh Eleven
9. Why
10. Heavy Metal
11. United
12. Icy Blackness (Kursk)
