Sun Of The Sleepless Premieres New Song “The Owl” From Upcoming New Album “To the Elements”

Black metal unit Sun Of The Sleepless premieres a new song entitled “The Owl”, taken from the upcoming new album “To the Elements”, which will be released by Prophecy Productions in a variety of formats: as a digipak CD (with a 12-page booklet), a gatefold LP (on both black and limited silver vinyl), and as a collector’s 2xCD box (which includes the digipak CD, the out-of-print 1999 MCD Poems To The Wretches Hearts in a cardsleeve, a patch, and an autographed, hand-numbered certificate in a hotfoil-embossed box).

Check out now “The Owl” below.

Explains Sun Of The Sleepless:

“‘The Owl‘ is actually the first song that was written and recorded for the album. The verse riff/main theme of this song was the spark that lit the fire, so to speak. This was also the first song I recorded the drums for and it made me realize that Black Metal drumming is even more exhausting than I remembered it to be from — wait…18 years ago. ‘The Owl‘ is a hymn to the nocturnal self. The Owl as a symbol for individuality (in German we use the word “Kauz” — tawny owl — to describe a pariah) but also wisdom, superiority — the unrelenting spirit of the night. Musically, I really wanted to have this ‘lonesome nighttime atmosphere’ to be the absolute focus of this song. It draws elements from Empyrium (how come?), old The 3rd and the Mortal, Emperor and influences by some of the more melodic Swedish Black Metal Bands too. One of my favorites for sure. Sublime, free, forever at night — The Owl”

The Soundbyte Posts “Solitary” Music Video

Avant garde metal group The Soundbyte — helmed by former The Third and the Mortal guitarist Trond Engum — is treading dark waters in the new video for “Solitary.”

Drawing from ambient, progressive, and post-rock/metal sounds enhanced by ethereal vocals, The Soundbyte crafts songs that sound massive, aided by dark visuals.

“Solitary slit and tear us,” The Soundbyte told Decibel Magazine. “Beautifully distorting in character, it forces us to through all there is, all there was. It makes us witness our decay within and that of our surroundings twisted and formed by our choices. The album Solitary IV´s title song is moments of battling a haze of disturbing solitary. Intentionally discomforting, the song is aesthetically arranged with signature guitars, expressive drumming, contrasting string arrangements and tenderly raw vocal performances. “

The Soundbyte will release fourth album — aptly titled “Solitary IV” — on June 30th via Temple of Torturous. Pre-orders are now online at this location.

Rozamov Posts “Serpent Cult” Music Video

As Boston’s Rozamov winds down a U.S. tour in support of debut LP, “This Mortal Road,” the band just released a new video for the track “Serpent Cult” – check it out below.

For the past three weeks, directly in the wake of releasing “This Mortal Road through” Battleground Records and Dullest Records at the beginning of March, Rozamov has been delivering the LP’s psychedelia-strewn monolithic doom to audiences across the country, with the last show taking place tonight in Canton, Ohio.

The band checks in from the road about the new video: “We knew that we wanted to do a video for a song off This Mortal Road. We were also all pretty busy with life so we asked our bud Steve from Sea if he had any cool ideas he wanted to shoot. And the rest is history. We are really grateful to be surrounded by a collective of stellar artists in our scene. We work with friends whenever given the opportunity and this video for ‘Serpent Cult’ is no different. Hope you enjoy.”

Dperd Announces New Album “V”

Dperd is coming back and the Italian duo is prepping fifth full-length album “V” for release in March. The band’s label My Kingdom Music comments:

“Once again they focused their efforts on the intimate and atmospheric dark wave mixing it to a filmic fusion of modern melancholic dark rock. The magic of bands like The Cure, Cocteau Twins but also the grandeur of nowadays acts like Dead Can Dance, Lycia, This Mortal Coil and Cranes is present in their music giving to the whole a superb sense of beauty.

“The album will be released on March 14th, 2016 via My Kingdom Music and there’s no way to escape Dperd’s ethereal and nostalgic music… and no reason you’d want to!”
