Lyric Video For New Song “My Temptation” Posted By Sleeping Romance

Sleeping Romance released a lyric video for the new single “My Temptation.” The song appears on the new album “Alba,” which will be released on November 3rd via Napalm Records.

The band is thrilled to unveil their first track and states: “We’re stoked to finally present ‘My Temptation,’ the first single from our upcoming album ‘Alba.’ This is a killer song that represents in a perfect way the new Sleeping Romance sound: epic, symphonic and dramatic atmosphere. Hope you love it! IL METALLO!”

The upcoming album “Alba” leads a journey of orchestral opera arrangements and siren songs; touching, sometimes frightening, but always as personal as can be. Songstress Federica Lanna means every word she sings and Federico Truzzi complements her lovely voice with delicate guitars.

The concept of “Alba,” ‘Dawn’ in Italian, centers around the main character and her life that advances through difficulties, choices and mistakes, and leads the character to a positive growth. The message the concept wants to give is that life is complex, full of obstacles, but there’s always a way forward, and an opportunity for everyone to reach what their heart desire.

The full track listing is:

1. Overture – Twilight
2. Where The Light Is Bleeding
3. Lost In My Eyes
4. Touch The Sun
5. Forgiveness
6. My Temptation
7. Across The Sea
8. Everything Behind
9. Through The Looking Glass
10. Alba
11. Underture – Daylight

Stick To Your Guns Releases “Married To The Noise” Video

Stick To Your Guns just dropped the video for “Married to the Noise,” an anthemic yet melodic, fist-pumping new track. The song lives on upcoming album “True View,” due out October 13th via Pure Noise.

Vocalist Jesse Barnett told Loudwire, “The older I get, the more I’m met with ‘Oh wow, you still do that?’ or ‘LOL, you still listen to that?’ Every time, my answer is, ‘Fuck yes.’ This scene was never a phase for me. Through every amazing and horrible thing that has happened in my life, this music has been by my side. I’m so grateful to this music, for the people it brought into my life, the places it has taken me, and for the ethics that have shaped me. This may have been a passing phase for some people, but for me there was no other choice.”

Stick to Your Guns will launch a coast-to-coast live assault, playing four shows on the East Coast and four shows on the West Coast. Three of the eight shows will also take place in Canada. Afterwords, STYG is confirmed for a winter 2018 tour with Architects (UK) and Counterparts.

Nachtmystium Signs With Prophecy Productions

Well, it finally happened. A label with an apparent total lack of pattern recognition has signed the reactivated Nachtmystium. Good luck Prophecy Productions — you’re going to need it. Prophecy issued this statement:

“The group has completed work on a new EP titled ‘Resilient,’ which was recorded at Belle City Sound in Racine, Wisconsin with engineer Chris Djuric. Additional recording sessions also occurred in Norway, Germany, and the band’s home base of California before tracking from all contributing members was complete. ‘Resilient’ is slated for an early 2018 release date via Prophecy.

“Now sober, Judd continues to rebuild his life, both personally and professionally. As part of Nachtmystium joining the Prophecy Productions family of artists, the band will release future recordings through the label, who will also reissue much of the group’s extensive back catalog. The new union supersedes the band’s previously-announced deal with Earache Records.”

Guitarist / vocalist Blake Judd comments: “Nachtmystium is extremely honored to be working with Prophecy Productions. It is a true pleasure for me to have been able to develop a personal relationship with the Prophecy label staff in Southern California. We are able to meet face-to-face regularly and work together at creating the best possible environment for Nachtmystium to begin to rebuild it’s way back into the metal community after some very dark years and times that I have spent the majority of the last two years cleaning up the debris from.

“With past misdoings being corrected, new bridges built (and some old bridges rebuilt), and a few exclusive 2017 live performances under our belts, we feel as though the band has taken massive strides forward in recovering from its damaged state after my seven year run with severe heroin addiction. Those dark days are now behind me, the band and all whose lives we effect in one way or another. Onward and upward is the attitude and goal here, as Nachtmystium’s ascension returns to its past form. Expect to hear a lot of new music and news from our camp in 2018.”

Bones (vocalist & guitarist) had this to say: “It is an exciting time of evolution for the band. Bloodstock this year was a real milestone for us, and with the change of lineup, the stars seem to have aligned to lead us into the next phase. We all wish Chris good luck in whatever he chooses to do next. He will always be our brother.”

Chris himself added, “I wish the guys all the best, and would like to thank the fans for all their support over the years. It has been a great experience and will remain a highlight in my life.”

Buried Realm Announces “The Ichor Carcinoma” Release

Josh Dummer provides all the core instruments and vocals on his creation Buried Realm’s debut, “The Ichor Carcinoma” with the exception of some very exciting guests such as Bob Katsionis (Firewind, Septicflesh), Brandon Ellis (Arsis, Cannabis Corpse), Christopher Amott (Arch Enemy, Armageddon), Dean Paul Arnold (Vital Remains), Marios Iliopoulos (Nightrage), Peter Wichers (Soilwork), Ryan Strain (Recode The Subliminal), Teemu Mäntysaari (Wintersun) and Travis Montgomery (Threat Signal, Jeff Loomis band).

Dummer describes Buried Realm’s music as “fierce, cutting, technical, melodic, and memorable.” The studio project represents a hidden dimension within himself where the buried disputes of his life are confronted only through music; where he can express musical ideas without compromising.

Eager for the fans to hear his debut album, Dummer reflects: “I feel that listeners can appreciate it, not only on a musical level but hopefully enjoy the listening experience too. This album was a long time in the making and hopefully that translates. ‘The Ichor Carcinoma’ was originally supposed to be an EP. However, I had too many pre-production demos and didn’t want to scrap them, so I decided on a full-length, which fans can expect many guests across the entire album!”

Not afraid to draw deep from a painful wellspring of inspiration, Dummer adds, “Many people close to me, myself included, have been though unfortunate life-threatening situations recently. No one is invincible and everyone walks though life like they are…I couldn’t ignore those events when it came to writing lyrics for this release. Some of the songs go into further detail about the terror I’ve experienced and personal demons I’ve faced. The lyrics are about the mental and physical battles of terminal illness/diseases and the attempt to rebuild.”

“The Ichor Carcinoma” is set for release on September 29th, 2017 and features the following track listing:

1. Portal (0:34)
2. The Ichor Carcinoma (4:56)
3. Asphyxiation’s Lullaby (5:04)
4. Through These Darkened Halls (4:05)
5. Apeiron I – The Legacy (5:02)
6. On Serpent Soil (4:46)
7. Apeiron II – Global Dreamer (5:06)
8. Unscrupulous (6:15)
9. Hidden Chapter (2:20)
10. SuperSpell (8:08)

Hexenklad Announces “Spirit Of The Stone” Album Release

The story of Canadian blackened folk metal crew Hexenklad began with the planting of a seed, an idea to create a band that was as deep in meaning and feeling as it was heavy and aggressive in sound.

Over time, this seed grew to envelope the forest floor, sprouting new life in its terrestrial journey. Of interesting note, the band features within its ranks both father and son – the old, wisdom-endowed seed and seedling, working together to germinate this Northern boreal with new life.

Out of this was born “Spirit Of The Stone,” the band’s debut album that will officially drop July 28th via CDN Records. Check out the song “Returned” below and you can pre-order the album right here.

1. In This Life or the Next
2. To Whom Veer Sinistral
3 At the Ends of Existence
4. Returned
5. At Dusk
6. In Waking Tymes
7. Path to Ruin
8. An Offering

Gateway to Hell Premieres Pre-Release Full-Album Stream Of Upcoming New EP “Clovers”

Maryland doom quintet Gateway to Hell premieres the pre-release full-album stream of the band’s upcoming new EP “Clovers”, which will arrive in stores later today via Unholy Anarchy Records.

Check out now “Clovers” in its entirety below.

Explains the band:

“Most of the songs we write are based around inside jokes that eventually snowball into a twisted story backed by catchy riffs. For instance, the title track started out as a reference to an episode of the show Review, where the main character has to go to jail with their imaginary friend named Clovers. From that joke, the song morphed into a reflection of the masks we wear to impress others, whether that be an uneasy performer onstage or an overwhelmed friend going through the motions of life. Clovers is equally inspired by the the life of Paul Stanley and your average childhood imaginary friend – both burdened to live up to the expectations of others in the face of the grim realities of life. Musically, we wanted to conjure the quiet before the show followed by the rush as the curtains get pulled. By the time the solo rolls around, you’re comfortable in your groove and have finally become the anticipated entertainment of the night. At the end of the song, the show’s over, and you’re left alone with your insecurities.”
