The third concept album from ritualistic black metal crew Cult of Erinyes will be titled “Tiberivs” and is due out via Code666 Records on April 27th. The label comments:

“Spawned with the intention to distill artistic audacity into respected traditions, Cult of Erinyes belongs to the forbidden experience, where music is merely a symptom of a higher truth.

Eschaton Posts “Falsified Existence” Lyric Clip

Next month, Unique Leader Records will spew forth the spine-twisting sounds of “Sentinel Apocalypse” from New England-based progressive death metal oppressors, Eschaton.

Tracked at drummer Darren Cesca’s House Of Grind Studios in southern Connecticut, “Sentinel Apocalypse” is a relentlessly abrasive exercise in technical agility and blatant aggression boasting eleven tracks of methodical guitar sweeps, fierce drum incursions, and dominating vocal tirades.

With the release of “Sentinel Apocalypse” now just less than a month away, Skulls ‘N’ Bones offers up the forbidden sounds of “Falsified Existence” for communal gorging. Check it out below.

“Falsified Existence is a blast-beat infested, riff-drunk guttural onslaught packed into two-and-a-half-minutes of ass-kicking,” elaborates the band. “No beating around the bush, no finesse, just Eschaton rying to beat it into your heads that every track on Sentinel Apocalypse is ruthlessly aggressive. The lyrical concept pertains to being repulsed by mankind’s failures and that our desperate clinging to the terms of this false reality must be shed.”

The Lion’s Daughter Streaming New Song “Wolves”

St. Louis doom metal outfit The Lion’s Daughter is pleased to unearth the forbidden fruit from latest full-length, “A Black Sea.” Check out the track “Wolves” below courtesy of Cvltnation.com.

A collaborative effort between The Lion’s Daughter and somber folk ensemble/fellow St. Louis occupants, Indian Blanket, the initial idea was to create just one special song together, however through musical chemistry, and perhaps some support from Jim Beam and various forms of earthbound psychedelics, what was prearranged as one track mushroomed into a full LP.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Gabe Usery (Fister) at Encapsulated Studios in St. Louis, “A Black Sea” features seven apocalyptic, blues-based, doom metal mantras. The track listing is as follows:

1. Wolves
2. Gods Much More Terrible
3. Swann
