Beneath Reveals “Ephemeris” Album Details

“Ephemeris” is the third full length release from Icelandic death metal titans, Benath. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Fredrik Nordström at the acclaimed Studio Fredman in the fall of 2016.

After the departure of founding member and drummer Ragnar Sverrison, Beneath teamed up with Mike Heller (Malignancy, Control/Resist, Fear Factory) to handle the drums for the album. The result is nine tracks of relentless brutality.

Commented vocalist Benedikt Natanael Bjarnason, “We are immensely proud to announce the release of our third full-length album Ephemeris. We teamed up with Mike Heller to provide session drums for the nine-track album which adds a whole new dimension to the soundscape of Beneath. Make sure to not miss the release date on August 18th!”

Guitarist Jóhann Ingi Sigurðsson adds, “Ephemeris has been a demanding album for us personally and in many ways, it represents a turning point for the band. We’ve always pushed ourselves in ways that keep us invested and engaged in our music­, and on this album, that meant making big changes to our overall sound. There are songs that are a marriage of pure heaviness and brutality, while on the other spectrum there are some very challenging technical arrangements pushing the limits of our playing abilities. In the end, we ended up with an album that feels musically multidimensional and that we are extremely proud of.”

New album “Ephemeris” will be released on August 18th via Unique Leader Records and the full track listing is as follows:

1. Constellational Transformation
2. Eyecatcher
3. Ephemeris
4. Alignments
5. Guillotine
6. Cities Of The Outer Reaches
7. Medium Obscurum
8. Amorphous Globe
9. Multiangular

Decapitated Releases “Earth Scar” Music Video

The Polish metal extremists from Decapitated are inching closer to the release of their seventh album “Anticult,” which arrives via Nuclear Blast on July 7th. The band has further stoked anticipation for the album by issuing the video for the new track “Earth Scar.”

“We’re really excited to release the second song from our upcoming new record – ‘Earth Scar!,'” said guitarist Vogg. “I have always drawn influence from all spectrums of metal and this song and? our new? record really reflect those influences. “Much like ‘Never,’ this song has been designed to crush on a stage and we can’t wait to add it to our set. Rasta wrote the lyrics with a lot of metaphorical content dealing with touring. The opposing lifestyles from the ‘normal,’ day-to-day of being at home vs. being on the road and seeing our ‘tribe’ interacting with the music and the almost restorative qualities of that. We hope you all enjoy it and we can’t wait to see you all very soon!”

The new video can be seen below, and if you missed it, the history of Decapitated was recently covered in our Sunday Old School column here.

Broken Hope Posts “The Meek Shall Inherit Shit” Interactive Video

Broken Hope just posted a new 360 degree video for latest track “The Meek Shall Inherit Shit.” Explore unique perspectives of the extreme and incredible art of Wes Benscoter and experience a kaleidosphere of death metal misanthropy at every turn in this interactive video.

While much of the album pays tributes to John Carpenter’s classic “The Thing” and John W. Campbell Jr’s short story “Who Goes There,” the lyrics behind “The Meek Shall Inherit Shit” were actually inspired by the true horrors observed in the real world.

Guitarist and songwriter Jeremy Wagner explains: “’The Meek Shall Inherit Shit’ is a song I’ve been wanting to write lyrically for some time. I’m an environmentalist – a guy who considers environment, rather than heredity, as the primary influence on the development human beings. Homo sapiens are living in a shitpile.

“We constantly foul our nest, we are killing the planet, and we cause up to 2,000 extinctions every year. Look, I don’t want to get all hippy and political here. I just love the natural world so much and I hate what’s being done to it. It fucking pisses me off! And you can hear my anger in the lyrics and the music of this track.”

Thy Art Is Murder Announces New Album “Dear Desolation”

Australian group Thy Art Is Murder will release new album “Dear Desolation” on August 18th via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Check out the music video for the first single, “Slaves Beyond Death,” in the player below.

“Dear Desolation” was produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Will Putney at Graphic Nature Audio in Belleville, NJ. Artwork was created by Eliran Kantor.

Comments vocalist C.J. McMahon: “I feel the strongest I’ve ever felt going into a record. Coming back to the fold of our band has reinvigorated me. I missed my brothers, touring, and of course all our dedicated fans around the world who have always given us their all.

“This new record is going to shape our future; we gave it everything we could and then some. In the past, I was the weakest link and now that I have re-built myself, we are stronger than ever and nothing can stand in our way.”

Adds guitarist Andy Marsh: “Hate, War, Desolation; the trilogy series of the path mankind has laid out before himself. We are prouder than ever of our efforts on this record. A lot of time, planning, creativity and teamwork has culminated in what we think is our most completed vision yet: Dear Desolation.”

Five Finger Death Punch Comments On Disastrous Tilburg Show

After a show in Tilburg last night was cut short last night and Ivan Moody apparently quit the band mid-set, Five Finger Death Punch has now released a statement about the situation. It doesn’t address the Moody situation at all, but does indicate the band will still continue touring. The band comments:

“Those who have followed 5FDP from the beginning can tell you there has always been an element of danger and unpredictability in our music and in our shows.

“That’s Rock ‘n’ Roll. When you do over 150 shows in a year, you will inevitably have a few derailments, but the train always keeps on moving. Last night in Tilburg was one of those instances, but as they say, you aren’t a race car driver if you don’t wreck a car or two.

“We can’t wait to put on amazing shows tomorrow night at Nova Rock all the way to our just announced winter tour all over Europe. See you all on the race track… bring a helmet…”

Igorrr launches “The Making of ‘Savage Sinusoid’ [part3]“

– June 13th, 2017 –

On June 16th, Igorrr – the brainchild of French musician and eclectic composer Gautier Serre – will release their new album, Savage Sinusoid, via Metal Blade Records. On this record, electronic manipulations, accordion, saxophone, sitar, harpsichord, mandolin and strings sit comfortably alongside ruthless blastbeats, chunky riffs, death grunts and soaring operatic vocals – and as chaotic as this might sometimes seem, there is no lack of heart behind everything thundering from the speakers. To watch a behind-the-scenes video of the making of Savage Sinusoid, part 3 of the series can be viewed at: https://youtu.be/nLGLPWrfkI4

The previous episodes can be seen below:
–Part 1: https://youtu.be/Yq7_Kax-DwI
–Part 2: https://youtu.be/emJ1l8853pU

For another preview of Savage Sinusoid, the previously released singles, “ieuD” and Cheval” (featuring guest vocals by Cattle Decapitation‘s Travis Ryan!), can also be heard at: metalblade.com/igorrr – where the record can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–Digipak CD
–pale skin clear vinyl (limited to 500 copies)
–cream/white splatter (limited to 200 copies – EU exclusive)
–golden yellow vinyl (limited to 100 copies – Bandcamp exclusive)
–tan-marbled vinyl (limited to 200 copies – US exclusive)
*exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Savage Sinusoid track-listing:
1. Viande
2. ieuD
3. Houmous
4. Opus Brain
5. Problème d’émotion
6. Spaghetti Forever
7. Cheval
8. Apopathodiaphulatophobie
9. Va te foutre
10. Robert
11. Au Revoir

To realize Savage Sinusoid as a completely sample-free record, Serre reunited with vocalists Laurent Lunoir and Laure Le Prunenec, along with drummer Sylvain Bouvier, and collaborated with more musicians than on any of his previous releases – one of those guests being Cattle Decapitation‘s Travis Ryan, who lends his vocals on “Cheval”, “Apopathodiaphulatophobie” and “Robert”. “Viande” also sees Teloch (Mayhem) contribute some guitar/bass work, while “Houmous” features accordionists Pierre Mussi and Adam Stacey (the latter of whom is in Secret Chiefs 3 – a project by Mr. Bungle‘s Trey Spruance). While Savage Sinusoid draws from a plethora of genres, Serre has no intention of baffling or alienating potential listeners. As he explains:“I just want to make the music I love, without asking myself if it’s gonna be too complex or too far from what people like. I want to make the music which has sense to me, with no restrictions, like a big party with metalheads, electronics nerds, classical and baroque-heads and gypsy violinists getting drunk and joining together to bring the best of every genre.”
