NEKRASOV: One-Man Black Metal Assault To Release The Mirror Void Via Prosthetic Records This November; New Track Streaming + Pre orders Available

NEKRASOV is reminiscent of some unhallowed Lovecraftian vault, where the dreamer meets his dream: the abyss of mind and space alike, where he compositionally depicts the hinges in the deep recesses of the mind, that only a visionary can uncover. Once revealed, it’s up to the listener on whether he or she can handle the […]

Fumigation Releasing Split CD With The Path To R’lyeh

Like a Lovecraftian novel, death metal knows no bounds. It’s themes are often filled with outlandish creatures and horrors that challenge the everyday monotony of our existence. It’s through these musical and lyrical themes that we are afforded an opportunity to truly be free… to live among the creatures that dwell in our subconscious minds.

Straight from the deepest, darkest recesses of the mind is born a partnership of musical aberration crawling from the murk as Fumigation and The Path To R’lyeh come together. This brutal two-some joined forces for a CDN Records split CD, aptly-titled “Invasion.”

01. Arachnophobia
02. Forced Vaginal Harbourage
03. Earwigs & Earwax
04. A Beard Full of Maggots

Zeal And Ardor Releases “Don’t You Dare” Live Video

Zeal & Ardor, the brainchild of Manuel Gagneux that mixes black metal and blues with lyrics delivered in the fashion of chain gang slave spirituals, just premiered brand new song “Don’t You Dare.”

This marks the first time the song has ever been heard and it was performed live at Couleur 3 studio in Lausanne, Switzerland on January 18th, 2017. Check out the video below.

The song does not appear on “Devil Is Fine,” Zeal & Ardor’s debut album, which is due out globally on February 24, 2017 and reviewed here.

Gagneux told Noisey, “The idea of something so horrible that merely looking at it will end you is fascinating to me. ‘Don’t You Dare’ thematically plays with biblical demons as well as Lovecraftian elements that lend themselves well to this idea. Since I wrote it after getting the band together, it’s not on the album, but will be performed on the upcoming tour. I hope you enjoy watching as much as we enjoy playing it.”

Vale Of Pnath Streaming “Klendathu”

Vale Of Pnath just released the “Klendathu” track, which can be heard below and comes off the “II” album. New album “II” is set to surface June 10th via Willowtip records. You can pre-order the album right here.

Tracked at Flatline audio by engineer Dave Otero (Cattle Decapitation, Cephalic Carnage, Allegaeon), “II” is an amalgamation of complex riff writing, calculated chaos, and Lovecraftian worship. This is Vale Of Pnath fully leveled up, and pushing itself to new boundaries of tech death precision.

Guitarist Vance Valenzuela comments: “We’re extremely excited to release our 2nd album ‘II.’ Its been 4 years since the release of ‘The Prodigal Empire,’ and we have progressed exponentially with this bands sound. We believe it is only the beginning to something great. This is our most dynamic, technical and mature material to date, that’s certain to turn heads.”

Sulphur Aeon Opening The “Gateway To The Antisphere”

The winds of Spring bring the stench of sulphur, as German death metal tyrants Sulphur Aeon prepare for the devastating unfurling of leviathan sophomore LP, “Gateway To The Antisphere,” through a cooperative release between Imperium Productions and Ván Records on April 3rd.

Fifty-two minutes of debilitating yet enthralling, black-tinged, Lovecraftian death suck the listener in like an inescapable vortex, as visually depicted in the cover artwork that was created by Ola Larsson.

The sixth of the eleven harrowing passages on “Gateway To The Antisphere” has been released through an artwork video. Witness the destruction of “Diluvial Ascension – Gateway To The Antisphere” below. The album’s track listing is:
