Horror God & Techne Split CD Out Now On Lavadome Productions

The new split CD from Horror God and Techne is out now and streaming in its entirety via Lavadome Productions below. This eight-track album takes great lengths to show how art can manifest if bands have the chops and perseverance to place expression and originality above all else.

Horror God and Techne each contributed four tracks to the album, all of them loaded with equal amounts of monstrous riffs and intensity. The similarities end there as each band retains their own sound and style throughout the split.

Horror God offers three brand new originals and a ripping cover of “Sinking into Transparency,” from Canadian death metal band Purulence. A true, but rewarding challenge.

Techne’s contribution to the split is surreal and proves that extreme music can rife with complexity and technicality, yet accessible to the listener. Art such as this needs no label. Techne approached this release with one goal – to permanently imprint the music – and the atmosphere it creates – on the listener’s brain. Mission accomplished.

For Techne, this release means ‘Finita la Commedia,’ as the band has decided to call it a career.

Horror God will carry on and has a full-length album coming later this year on Lavadome Productions.

“Hi Everyone,

It’s with great, great sadness that I must tell you I have to cancel the Day Of Errors tour dates scheduled in December. I wound up in hospital this past weekend with heart problems. I am OK and in good recovery at this time. However, I’ve never experienced this particular type of heart problem before, and due to its nature, I had to make the decision to cancel the dates.

I want to send my sincere apologies to everyone who was planning to come out to the shows. I’m so sorry we won’t be making it – I was looking forward to seeing you all and sharing this music with you. I’ll be in touch soon.

All my love,
Bill”

Amon Amarth and Ride & Crash Games Launch New Viking Mobile Video Game In 80′s Retro Style

– November 20th, 2017 –

Available immediately, Swedish heavy metal titans Amon Amarth (Metal Blade Records/Sony Music International) – in partnership with Swedish video game developer and publisher Ride & Crash Games AB – has unleashed a new Amon Amarth mobile video game!

The Game. You are Thor and your mission is simple: cleanse Midgard from all of the vile creatures that are threatening the (*ahem*) peaceful Viking way of life. There are three keys to ensure your success:

(1) your hammer, Mjolnir;
(2) your control of the freakin’ thunder and lightning!; and
(3) your fighting spirit is always high thanks to Amon Amarth‘s epic music in retro style blasting from over the horizons and into your ears.

The unique game features four worlds, four epic battles, 12 unique levels and 13 different Amon Amarth tracks with retro video game sounds!

The game is available worldwide to the public for iOS and Android Phones and Tablets for a retail price of $8.99. This link redirects the mobile or tablet user to their correct App Store: tosto.re/amonamarthgame

The idea for the game was conceived in the fall of 2015 when Robert Chirico Willstedt, a video game producer in Stockholm and founder of Ride & Crash Games AB, met Amon Amarth. Robert and the band bonded over epic amounts of beer and a common love of video games, and they started discussing how cool it would be if they could create a video game for Amon Amarth. There and then, the idea was born of a retro style Viking platformer with Amon Amarth music in ’80s sounding square wave format. Robert hand-picked a team of developers and designers to realize the game concept. The band met the development team continuously during the development process to ensure the end product would stay true to the initial vision of the game. This is an authentic Amon Amarth product.

Grab Mjolnir. Blast Amon Amarth. Save Midgard.

Amon Amarth line-up:
Johan Hegg – Vocals
Ted Lundstrom – Bass
Johan Soderberg – Guitar
Olavi Mikkonen – Guitar
Jocke Wallgren – Drums

In Flames Releases Surprise Covers EP, Posts “It’s No Good” Video Online

Swedish melodic death metal veterans In Flames has today released a four track covers EP entitled, “Down, Wicked and No Good.” Appropriately, the song includes covers of the Alice In Chains song, “Down In A Hole,” Chris Isaak’s, “Wicked Game” and the Depeche Mode classic, “It’s No Good,” for which they have released a new music video. It also contains a live recording of the Nine Inch Nails staple, “Hurt.”

Speaking on the Depeche Mode cover, the band said: “We’ve been fans of Depeche Mode since we were as young as 10. Getting to do our rendition of ‘It’s No Good’ showed us a different side of the song – it brought new meanings to us. We relate to the lyrics and power of the song so heavily that it almost feels as if we could have written it ourselves. They’re a band that we’ve always looked up to. Growing up, you either listened to Pop, Synths or Rock and even though we are a metal band, Depeche Mode inspired a lot of the electronic elements we use in our music today.”

Earlier this week, the band kicked off their co-headline arena tour with American heavyweights, Five Finger Death Punch and special guests Of Mice & Men in Helsinki. The trek will take place across Europe and the UK, stopping in most major cities, finally concluding on December 21st at the iconic Wembley Arena in London, UK.

Cannibal Corpse lands on international charts with new album, ‘Red Before Black’

– November 16th, 2017 –

Cannibal Corpse recently released their new album, Red Before Black, via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has now entered the international charts! See below for all positions:

Top 200 Current Albums #21 (USA)
Hard Music Albums #2 (USA)
Independent Albums #4 (USA)
Rock Albums #5 (USA)
Top 200 # 95 (USA)

Top 200 Charts #20 (Canada)
Hard Music Charts #1 (Canada)
Digital Music Charts #38 (Canada)

Germany #16
Czech Republic #24
Austria #29
Switzerland #29
France #75

To preview and purchase Red Before Black, please visit: metalblade.com/cannibalcorpse

Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black‘ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

Night In Gales Shares Details Of Upcoming New Album “The Last Sunsets”

After a couple of eventful years, Night In Gales finally return with a new album. Together with returning vocalist Christian Müller who appeared on their early works “Sylphlike” (1995) and “Razor” (1996), the melodic death metal five-piece returns to its roots and experiences a process of rejuvenation. “The Last Sunsets“ will be released on February 23rd via Apostasy Records. Stay tuned for more information.

The band is supported by three guest vocalists: Mark Grewe (ex-Morgoth, Insidious Disease), Christian Mertens (Dark Millennium), und Martin Matzak (ex-Torchure). The mix and the master was done by a true scene-icon. Dan Swanö (Edge Of Sanity, ex-Bloodbath, a.o.) created the perfect sound for the twelve songs which shifts between old-school and timeless. Furthermore, Costin Chioreanu’s artwork (At The Gates, Arch Enemy, Carach Angren…) with its strong symbolic power fits perfect as a visual addition to the music.

Tracklist:
01. The Last Sunsets
02. Dark Millenium
03. The Mortal Soul
04. The Passing
05. Architects Of Tyranny
06. The Abyss
07. The Spears Within

10. Cessation
11. In Pain, In Silence
12. Dust And Form
