Kremlin Signs With Godz Of War Productions

Godz Ov War Productions has announced a partnership with the Canadian barbaric death metal squad Kremlin, featuring past/present members of Infernäl Mäjesty and Outre-Tombe.

The band’s debut album entitled “Decimation of the Elites” will be released this fall exclusively on CD.

Godz ov War comments: “The three-piece Canadian act fits the label’s roster perfectly, expanding it with its pretty old school death metal with some modern touches to it (production wise in particular). The eight tracks that ‘Decimation of the Elites’ is made up of mean thirty-plus minutes of unrelentless, furious, bestial and evil death metal played the American way, with some echoes of the 1980s/1990s European, Swedish in particular, scene too.

“Relentless, straightforward, brutal yet melodic death metal devastating your ears from the beginning to the end. No remorse, sheer aggression. And the trio deliver all that with crushing and crunching, robust yet feral sound that make the album even more interesting to listen to.”

Costa Rica’s Sight Of Emptiness has been hard at work towards making an impact on the global metal scene since the release of “Trust Is A Disease” in 2007 – the same year the band won the Bloodstock Unsigned Contest and played the mainstage of Bloodstock Open Air.

The band’s hard work culminates now, as Sight Of Emptiness prepares to unleash third full-length album “Instincts” on January 21st, 2014. The following press release was issued about the album:

“‘Instincts’ is a heavy-hitting dose of melodic death metal that will hit home with fans of Amon Amarth, At The Gates, In Flames and the like. It is also a very targeted effort to reach the worldwide metal masses.

“Produced by Thomas ‘Plec’ Johansson (Watain, Scar Symmetry, etc), ‘Instincts’ features a who’s who of incredible musicians guesting on the album. Tracks featuring Glen Drover (Megadeth, King Diamond), Ralph Santolla (Deicide, Iced Earth), Christian Alvestam (Scar Symmetry) and Whitfield Crane (Ugly Kid Joe) make the album standout on looks alone, but the songs themselves will have fans coming back for more!

“Not only has Sight Of Emptiness caught the attention of their peers, but also the Costa Rican government as ‘Instincts’ also features a guest appearance of Manuel Obregon, the Minister of Culture & Youth for Costa Rica’s government.”
