Fractal Universe reveals details for new album, ‘Rhizomes of Insanity’

– February 21st, 2019 –

Launches video for new single, “Oneiric Realisations”

On April 19th, Fractal Universe will release their new album, Rhizomes of Insanity, via Metal Blade Records. In anticipation of this release, the band has launched a video for the record’s first single, “Oneiric Realisations”, which can be viewed at: – where Rhizomes of Insanity can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–ltd. digipak-CD w/ bonus track (EU exclusive)
–180g black vinyl (EU exclusive)
–light yellow vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–yellow / white splatter vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 120 copies)
–orange / red marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 150 copies)
* exclusive bundles with shirts, plus digital options are also available!

Fractal Universe comments: “Directed by Vincent Tournaud, the video was shot during 2 days of October 2018 at l’Autre Canal in Nancy, France.
A special attention was given to the lightings and color grading, which were designed to both match with the album artwork and catch the particular atmosphere of the song.”

Fractal Universe‘s sophomore full-length, Rhizomes of Insanity, hits as hard intellectually as it does sonically, affirming the French quartet’s place on the progressive death metal map. “‘Rhizomes of Insanity‘ is a concept album based on a thought experiment around the concept of insanity,” asserts vocalist/guitarist Vince Wilquin. “It questions the origins of it, and tries to define where we set its boundaries with ‘reason’. It eventually questions its place in our modern society and surmises that it has turned into an intrinsic, unavoidable but also necessary part of it and of every human being, which we’re trying to repress at all costs.” From start to finish, the album is an immersive, complex yet wholly accessible collection rich in melody, invention, and packed with decimating riffs – wielding ten tracks, all of which hit their mark.

Rhizomes of Insanity track-listing
1. Oneiric Realisations
2. Flashes of Potentialities
3. Rising Oblivion
4. A Reality to Foreclose
5. Masterpiece’s Parallelism
6. Parabola of Silence
7. Madness’ Arabesques
8. Architectural Aberrations
9. Fundamental Dividing Principle
10. Chiasmus of the Damned
11. Collective Engram – Unplugged (Bonus Track)

With a headline French tour scheduled for April followed by a European run later in the year, plus the intent to play as many festivals as possible this summer, metal fans can expect to hear a lot more from Fractal Universe in 2019 and beyond. “Since the beginning of the band, we’ve always given ourselves a 100% to offer our fans the best possible music and memorable live performances. With ‘Rhizomes of Insanity‘ and our forthcoming collaboration with Metal Blade Records, I believe we now have the perfect cards in hand to bring Fractal Universe to the next level.”.

Fractal Universe tour dates:
Apr. 19 – Nilvange, France – Le Gueulard+
Apr. 20 – Limours, France – Asylum Metal Fest
Apr. 23 – Nantes, France – La Scène Michelet
Apr. 25 – Toulouse, France – La Cave à Rock

Aztec Metal Band Cemican Signs To M-Theory Audio; Plans New Album For Spring

The Mexican-based Aztec metal group Cemican – whose unique music incorporates elements of the legends, mysticism and ideologies of ancient Mexican culture – has signed with M-Theory Audio, who plans to release the group’s new album in the late spring/early summer.

Cemican – who combine the modern instrumentation of a metal band with traditional pre-Hispanic instruments – experienced a breakout year in 2018. In addition to their new single/video “Guerreros de Cemican” receiving regular airplay on SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal, the six-piece group was invited to perform at the Paris edition of the Download Festival and Germany’s Wacken Open Air, as well as Force Fest – described by Revolver as “Mexico’s premier open-air festival” – in their native country.

The band plans to build on their momentum on 2019, when they will return to Europe in both the winter – when they’ll perform at France’s Cernunnos Pagan Fest and Germany’s Wacken Winter Nights – as well as the summer, when they will make their debut at the French festival Hellfest.

“I was first exposed to the sound of Cemican upon hearing ‘Guerreros de Cemican’ played on Liquid Metal. Finding out more about this exciting new band I saw the captivating promo video and that they were performing on some big shows,” explains M-Theory label head Marco Barbieri. “I was impressed and wanted to buy their record only to find that they were still unsigned and looking for a home. I immediately had to get in touch and share my enthusiasm and belief in the group and their musical and visual concept and here I’m proud to announce the forthcoming album and help further develop the band and spread their appeal.”

“Life is the center of every culture, the mysticism and ancient sounds gathered in the path of the death, warrior blood and glory of an empire,” states Xaman Ek. “The rituals of the Aztecs lead by the war drums thru the red path…TODOS SOMOS GUERREROS.” (We Are All Warriors)

Formed in 2008, Cemican has independently released two albums to date – 2009’s Ometiliztli and 2012’s Ticateh Ipan Miquixtlahuac. More information on the group’s new record – which will include “Guerreros de Cemican” in addition to other new tracks recorded in late 2018 – will be revealed in the coming weeks.

Enforcer Reveals New Album “Zenith” Details

It’s been silent for a while now in the camp of Swedish metallers Enforcer – too silent! But now the quartet are pleased to announce their return, with their highly anticipated fifth studio album entitled “Zenith.” The record will be unleashed on April 26th 2019 through Nuclear Blast Records – containing 10 brand new anthems, bringing not only classic tunes but also fresh blood to the band’s unique sound. In addition, guitarist Jonathan Nordwall debuts as a new permanent member of the group on the forthcoming record.

Comments guitarist/vocalist Olof Wikstrand, “Zenith is definitely the most ambitious project we ever engaged ourselves in.

With the drums having been recorded at Soundtrade Studios, Stockholm and the rest of the tracking completed at Hvergelmer Studios, Arvika, Zenith was produced by Enforcer themselves. The artwork was created by Italian artist Velio Josto.
