Black Cilice Releasing New Album “Mysteries”

Iron Bonehead Productions is proud to present the third LP of Black Cilice, titled “Mysteries,” which will drop January 30th, 2015. Iron Bonehead comments:

“Truly embodying the definition of ‘underground,’ Portugal’s Black Cilice has lurked in the shadows the past five years – or perhaps even longer, as the one-man band’s history is as mysterious as he is elusive – releasing a slew of demos and splits, all eventually culminating in two impossibly-rare albums.

“Dedicated to the ancient ways, Black Cilice has now teamed up with Iron Bonehead, who’s long maintained the vinyl aesthetic, to release arguably the man’s best record, Mysteries. A wave of rawness greets the wary listener, surging second-wave black metal to the bone, but underneath those layers of filth ‘n’ fatalism lies a melancholic majesty that’s truly a splendor to behold. Some could even qualify Mysteries as ‘beautiful’ – if that beauty was bespoiled for centuries in a cold, cobwebbed castle.

“Intractably black metal, we find here that ‘purism’ need not be shorthand for a dearth of ideas: Black Cilice twists the anachronisms of classic black metal into ageless, endlessly spellbinding forms, each undulating wave lapping back against the other to utterly hypnotizing effect. Medieval madness awaits within these otherworldly Mysteries…”

New Single “Twilight Of The Gods” Announced By Blind Guardian

The wait is over and Blind Guardian is back. The world’s most popular fantasy metal band announced the impending release of the new song “Twilight of the Gods,” the first single from the long-awaited new album, which will be unleashed December 5th via Nuclear Blast Records, with a full length album (yet untitled) to follow in January 2015.

“Twilight of the Gods” is the first creation of the Krefeld, Germany based band in more than four years. Vocalist Hansi Kürsch comments: “this song is a statement about Blind Guardian. The pure definition of all that the band stands for: it is innovative, melodic and brutal.”

“Twilight of the Gods” is described as a “neck breaker” in the true tradition of Blind Guardian and as Kürsch continues, one “that will captivate you with the most epic and catchy chorus we’ve ever written.”

Lyrically, “Twilight of the Gods” is about the deities’ waning power; no such times are in sight for the band. The single will be released in three formats (including digital release):

CD digipack with three tracks:

1. Twilight of the Gods
2. Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) – Live in Wacken 2011
3. The Bard’s Song (In the Forest) – Live in Wacken 2011

7? Vinyl:

Side A: Twilight of the Gods
Side B: Time Stands Still (At the Iron Hill) – Live in Wacken 2011
