Bloodbath Detail Upcoming New Album “The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn”

Bloodbath‘s fifth full-length effort “The Arrow Of Satan Is Drawn” is planned for an October 26th release via Peaceville. The outfit’s guitarist Anders “Blakkheim” Nyström says of it:

“What are we presenting with this album? Humanity’s unfaltering march prone towards downfall. The threat to this world isn’t from far beyond the sun, the enemy is right here, within the walls. Only the god of emptiness will survive us all. The arrow of Satan is drawn!”

“There’s no mitigating circumstances coming your way any time soon… The world is a mad place full of darkness, horror, disease and terror! Hell on Earth is real and not just limited to fiction. The dark ages transcend all frontiers, ever present but yet unseen.”

The outing will be released in both standard and deluxe editions.

Among the album’s songs is “Bloodicide“, featuring guest appearances from Jeff Walker of Carcass, Karl Willetts of Bolt Thrower/Memoriam fame and John Walker of Cancer.

Says Blakkheim of that in particular:

“It wasn’t deliberately planned to be just British guests, but as it randomly turned out that way, it became a really cool feat!. Nick [Holmes], Jeff, Karl and John are all legends respectively within the UK death metal scene and we’re proud to bring them all together on our little old school soiree to tribute the days of old.”

Fit For An Autopsy Debuts New Song “Iron Moon” From Upcoming New Album “The Great Collapse”

Fit For An Autopsy debuts a new single titled “Iron Moon” (featuring guest vocals from Ion Dissonance singer Kevin McCaughey), taken from the upcoming new album “The Great Collapse”, which is due on March 17 via eOne Music/Good Fight Music.

Check out now “Iron Moon” below.

Says guitarist Will Putney about the track:

“’Iron Moon‘s’ one of our more aggressive songs, lyrically it’s sort of an attack on the complacent and routine life. The world is full of people stuck in these dead end paths, just accepting a world that’s handed to you, a world where you have no voice or no opportunity to even get ahead. It’s a song written in defiance of that and is a reminder that you don’t have to settle for being exploited or controlled by anyone.”

Oni Releases “The Only Cure” Video Featuring Randy Blythe

2016 was a breakout year for progressive metal band Oni with the release of debut album “Ironshore,” touring alongside heavy metal greats such as Max & Iggor Cavalera and Children of Bodom, and tearing up the stage at Ozzfest Meets Knotfest with Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God.

After capping the year with Top 10 “Album of the Year” nods from the likes of Metal Injection, Metal Insider and others, Oni is returning with a new music video for one “The Only Cure” – featuring guest vocals from none other than Randy Blythe himself.

The music video, directed and edited by Abraham Roofeh, doubles as a petrifying, serial killer-themed horror film rapidly cutting to scenes of Oni and Blythe setting the soundtrack. Check it out below.

Guest vocalist Randy Blythe of Lamb Of God states: “What a super creepy video! Horror fans will love it – the production is Hollywood film-quality. It looks like something out of a ‘SAW’ or ‘Hostel’ movie. I had a lot of fun with the Oni guys recording this track, and it’s cool to see the music set to such dramatic scenery. Nightmares…”
