Stahlsarg Premieres Pre-Release Full-Album Stream Of Upcoming New Album “Mechanisms of Misanthropy”

U.K. based black metal act Stahlsarg premieres the pre-release full-album stream of the band’s upcoming new album “Mechanisms of Misanthropy”, which will be released later today through Non Serviam Records.

Check out now “Mechanisms of Misanthropy” in its entirety below.

Explains the band:

“On this album we have used more atmosphere to link the songs together to make a more immersive experience. The lyrics on this second album focus heavily on survival and individuals. We hear about how Jan Baalsrud, a Norwegian resistance fighter, had to cut gangrene infected flesh from his body. How a Jewish woman ended up working for the Gestapo to assist with capturing other Jewish people in hiding. How Sophie Scholl and the White Rose Movement fought to resist valiantly in a time of oppression. The album easily sits alongside its contemporaries, however it has its own sound. So if you like black and death metal with atmosphere than surrender your ears to Mechanisms of Misanthropy.“

Monument Of Misanthropy Premieres Trailer For Upcoming New EP “Capital Punisher”

Austrian/French brutal death metal maniacs of Monument Of Misanthropy are set to release their upcoming new EP titled “Capital Punisher” this October. Like on the band’s critically acclaimed pre-decessor and full-length debut “Anger Mismanagement”, French drum-wizard Romain Goulon (Necrophagist, ex-Benighted) is providing studio-drums. The album’s cover artwork was created by Remy Cuveillier of Headsplit Design, Paris, France.

Today Monument Of Misanthropy has dropped a trailer with exactly 666 seconds of brand new tunes of the band’s forthcoming EP, which can be streamed via YouTube below.

Explains frontman George “Misanthrope” Wilfinger:

“After this year’s European Tour with Vader and Immolation, we went directly to the studios to put our finishing touches to this new EP. We’ve been playing “At Death’s Door” already during that 3-weeks run, and later some more new songs from it during this year’s summer festivals. People seemed to love the new tracks as much as they love the classic MoM-tracks. So if you like your deathmetal brutal with hints of deathgrind, grindcore, slam and old-school death & thrash, I think this album will be your cup of tea.

We also recorded two new covers for it (Death’s “Pull The Plug” and The Faceless’ “Prison Born”), putting the typical Monument Of Misanthropy sound to it. To sum up, I can say that with our own lyrical themes ranging from political and economic corruption, to animal abuse, and psychological struggles of a misanthropic mass murderer, I think “Capital Punisher” serves perfectly as 2017’s cataclysmic and cynical soundtrack for a world gone criminally insane. Brutal music for brutal times.

“Capital Punisher”-track list:

01 Epilogue I
02 Capital Punisher
03 Epilogue II
04 At Death’s Door
05 Epilogue III
06 Killing Spree
07 Pull The Plug (Death – cover version)
08 Prison Born (The Faceless – cover version)

“Capital Punisher” will hit stores on CD – appropriately enough – this coming Halloween, October 31, 2017 and digitally via all major digital-retailers on December 5th, 2017 (Krampus Night or Krampusnacht). Physical pre-orders and exclusive bundles for “Capital Punisher” are currently available via BigCartel HERE.
