Deinonychus Returning With New Album “Ode To Acts Of Murder, Dystopia And Suicide”

My Kingdom Music just issued this announcement about the long overdue return of Deinonychus and an upcoming album:

“It’s been nine long years but now we can finally reveal that Deinonychus is back. Its reactivated Dutch protagonist, Marco Kehren, has set ‘Ode To Acts Of Murder, Dystopia And Suicide’ as the title of the long-awaited new album.

“Marco entered Spacelab Studio in Grefrath, Germany with Christian Moos a few weeks ago to begin recordings for his 8th album, the band’s first release since ‘Warfare Machines’ released on 2007. Steve Wolz (Bethlehem) will play the drums as it was for ‘Insomia’ album.”

New album “Ode To Acts Of Murder, Dystopia And Suicide” will be released worldwide via My Kingdom Music on October 2017. The label will also re-release the back catalog, including “Deinonychus” and “Ark Of Thought.”

Marco Kehren comments: “After the recordings of ‘Warfare Machines’ back in 2006 I felt things spinning downwards as for my involvement with Deinonychus, so just one year after its release, I decided to put things to rest in September 2008. That was the time when I started with Nihil Novi Sub Sole doing something closer to Martial / Industrial music.

“After releasing one album with Nihil Novi Sub Sole in 2010, I was about to get things together with Deinonychus again, but for several reasons it just didn’t come of the ground, it just didn’t feel like being the right moment… I just hadn’t got back that vibe which I had years before. However things have evolved eversince, and in early 2016 I decided to pick up things again in a serious matter and speeding up any efforts necessary to get Deinonychus back on track.

“So early 2016 a start was made in composing a new Deinonychus album. For the new album we are recording drums with Steve Wolz (Bethlehem). The album recordings process will be finished by the beginning of the new year at the Klangschmiede Studio under the guidance of Markus Stock (The Vision Bleak / Empyrium). Then we’ll take care of the process of mixing and mastering that will lead me and my always present label My Kingdom Music to the release of this new album in the fall 2017.

“I have invested my soul in this album, and I’m certain you’ll get in your hands the best, powerful and mournful Deinonychus music you have ever listened to.”

Aborted And Guitarist Danny Tunker Have Parted Ways.

View post on imgur.com

Aborted just announced Danny Tunker’s departure via the following official statement:

“So sometimes there’s good news and sometimes there’s not so good news. Today is one of the not so good news days. After three amazing years guitarist Danny Tunker decided he needed to step back from the band and pursue a different path in life. Combining a normal life and day job became too stressful to combine with our heavy schedule and even if we are sad to see him go, we completely understand his decision and support him in doing what makes him happy in life.

We had 3 great years with Danny and we all felt like a big family so we ask you all to show respect towards both Danny, his decision and the band, there is no bad blood, there is no need for any drama or gossip, Danny had the following to day:

“After a lot of soul searching for the past few months I’ve decided to part ways with Aborted. It’s been a hell of a ride and I want to thank to guys for all the good, bad and in between times. There’s no bad blood and I wish the band all the best, but I needed a change. I will still play the shows in Cairo and Tel Aviv and then on to different ventures (several of which I’m working on right now). And of course continue/expand my involvement with Alkaloid. So, once again, thanks to the band and everyone who made the past 3+ years completely unforgettable.”

Continues Aborted:

“We will be trying out several candidates in the next few weeks and fear not, none of the shows will be cancelled. We are working hard on the next fullength album and we have another surprise to be unleashed before the end of the year. So even if this something we didn’t want to happen, things go on and we intend to keep giving 200% for all you guys out there and wish Danny all the best with his new endeavours.”

Dark Quarterer Signs With Metal On Metal Records

The Italian metal veterans from Dark Quarterer have signed with Metal On Metal Records for the release of 6th full-length album “Ithaca.” Vocalist / basssit Gianni Nepi comments:

“We’ve known Simone and Jowita for years. They often came to our concerts, and there’s always been a great, friendly relationship between us. Oftentimes Jowita would take photos at our shows and share them with us. We’ve had the chance to see the quality of their releases, and when we needed a new label, it seemed natural to consider their involvement. We met several times before finalizing the terms of the agreement and we believe it’s a great opportunity to keep on releasing our albums in the best way possible.”

Jowita Kaminska-Peruzzi, Metal on Metal Records CEO, added: “My first meeting with Dark Quarterer and their unique music was in 2004, at the Keep It True festival in Germany. I had not heard any song of that band before, and I was enchanted on the spot. We’ve kept in touch ever since and by now we’ve seen the band live over a dozen of times… and each time they sounded incredible, no matter if they played on a big stage or in a small club or a biker bar. A spotless performance is a guarantee with his band. Such level of talent and professionalism is rare these days indeed. It’s an honour for us to be working with this legendary band that also happens to be comprised of true gentlemen.”

Reverorum Ib Malacht To Release New Album “De Mysteriis Dom Christi”

Today The Ajna Offensive has announced September 16th as the international release date for the CD version of Reverorum Ib Malacht’s second album, “De Mysteriis Dom Christi.”

The follow-up to 2011’s “Urkaos,” the CD version and LP version of “De Mysteriis Dom Christi” will feature entirely different track listings as well as music. The Ajna Offensive also comments:

“Reverorum Ib Malacht originally operated as part of the Swedish ‘anti-cosmic’ black metal community until members Lundin and Mikael converted to Catholicism around 2009. Lundin was known for his involvement with Dödfödd, Emit, and Ofermod.

“Ever since then, the debate has not been about how captivating and haunting the music is, but about whether or not this band can still be ‘black metal.’ On De Mysteriis Dom Christi, the band uses the phrase ‘Roman Catholic Black Metal.’

“Antagonism reigns. Mysterious, utterly obscure, divergent, murky, lo-if, eerie, transcendental, old, occult: what do all of these adjectives have in common? They not only refer to the music created by Reverorum Ib Malacht, but they are also embody much of what one experiences in those epic cathedrals that plague Christendom.”

The CD track listing is as follows:

1. I (3:35)
2. II (9:05)
3. III (3:37)
4. IV (9:01)
5. V (6:52)
6. VI (7:20)
7. VII (6:53)
8. IIX (5:25)
9. IX (2:57)
10. X (6:00)
11. XI (10:42)

The LP track listing will be:

1. De Mysteriis Dom Christi (21:30)
2. Ps. 138, 1-18 (18.29)

Protest The Hero Bassist Arif To Miss Upcoming Tour Dates

Protest The Hero has checked in with the following announcement about bassist Arif Mirabdolbaghi missing upcoming tour dates:

“Arif has decided that the touring schedule we have signed up for to support Volition is more intense than what he is prepared to commit. He is actively involved with other projects at home and being a full time band member isn’t a practical thing.

“Though he has and will be missed out on the road with his brothers, everything was left on a positive note and we are open to his involvement down the road and only time will see how it all plays out.

“In the meantime, our longtime friend and tourmate Cam McLellan will be filling in on bass duties for the rest of the cycle. As an amazing musician, co-writer and producer of Volition, he is more than capable to pick off where Riffy left off.

“Don’t fret, Cam’s working on his giant happy smile and well placed high kicks during our set!”
