Ravenous Death Premiere New Song “The Sinister Being” From Upcoming New Album “Chapters of an Evil Transition”

Ravenous Death premiere a new song entitled “The Sinister Being”, taken from their upcoming new album “Chapters of an Evil Transition”, which will be out in stores January 21st on Memento Mori.

Check out now “The Sinister Being” below.

Tells Ravenous Death’s drummer Esteban Salcedo, who wrote the track:

“I wanted to create a song with evil riffs and a couple of variations on the drums. Obviously the lyrics had to be according to the music. In fact, the entire album has a concept: it’s the story of a man who was marked by evil at birth. Therefore the songs have a sequence. At this point of the story, the man (nameless) has already embraced the darkness. He has already learned to live with his demons, he is already in the cult and he is ready to fully awake the sinister being that he has cultivated throughout his life. Through the story embodied in the lyrics, he is rejected by society because of that inherent evil that dominates him and all the scum that surrounds him. At first he began to kill for revenge, out of rage towards humanity, but the sinister being now does it for pleasure and to make offerings to his cult. Regarding the music, the ideas came out in a day of inspiration and little by little small arrangements were made. So if you want to hear more and know the whole story of this man, get the album!”

You can’t talk about the true greats of folk-inspired melodic death metal without reverent mention of Ensiferum, and with their latest album, Two Paths, they once more affirm their place in the pantheons of the genre. Further building upon the thrilling metallic hybrid honed across six full-lengths, Two Paths is simultaneously the Finnish quintet’s most epic and far-reaching collection and their most organic, which definitely sets it apart from the pack. Additionally, the album literally takes the concept of Two Paths to heart, with two different versions of standout tracks “Don’t You Say” and “God Is Dead”. “Even though Ensiferum has always had clean vocals and choirs, harsh vocals have been the main style, and those songs worked so well with both styles that we decided to include both versions,” explains bassist/vocalist Sami Hinkka. With Mikko P. Mustonen again handling orchestral arrangements and Lassi Logren returning to play nyckelharpa and violin on a few songs, Hinkka is also more than happy that they brought “more bombastic orchestral and down to earth folk aspects” to the record, further fleshing out their vision. This also applies to the contribution of Gyula Havancsak, who provided the artwork for both Two Paths and its predecessor, One Man Army. “It was really nice to work with him again because he always wants to hear our ideas and then he adds his own magic and improvements to them, and the result is always astonishing.”

Petri Lindroos – Vocals/Guitar
Markus Toivonen – Guitar/Vocals

– December 17th, 2018 –

Tour kicks off in Spring 2019; After The Burial as support

Parkway Drive and Killswitch Engage have announced a massive co-headline tour, dubbed “Collapse the World.” The trek will take place in Spring 2019, kicking off on April 18 in San Francisco and running through May 16 in Milwaukee. After The Burial will be in the lineup as support and the tour will be sponsored by Revolver. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, December 21 at 10am local time.

“After having the pleasure of destroying stages all over Australia with the Parkway guys just over a month ago, we couldn’t be more stoked to share the stage with them once again, this time in the States,” said KsE frontman Jesse Leach. Parkway Drive puts on an incredible live show and we are excited to combine forces and bring the energy every night to a town near you. I am absolutely certain fans of both bands are in for a hell of a time. This will be one for the memories for sure – let’s rage!”

“This co-headlining tour with Killswitch Engage is a landmark for Parkway Drive in North America,” said Parkway Drive‘s frontman Winston McCall. “Having smashed our way across the land for over a decade now, it is a humbling and defining moment to be sharing this slot with true heavy metal icons and personal heroes. We have always aimed to maintain the highest standard of energy, connection and entertainment at our shows, a standard that has been set and maintained by KSE their entire career. The concept of how epic this tour will be is mind blowing to me. Bring on the insanity!”

About Killswitch Engage:
Formed in 1999 out of western Massachusetts, Killswitch Engage are often credited as one of the most influential metal acts in the last 20 years. Twice Grammy-nominated, they’ve sold over 3 million records worldwide, with The End of Heartache and As Daylight Dies both certified Gold in the U.S. The band has enjoyed multiple Top 10-charting albums, with 2016′s Incarnate landing at #6 on the Billboard Top 200, #1 on the Current Rock Albums chart, and debuting at #1 overall in Canada, #5 in Australia, and #10 in both the UK and Germany, a testament to the band’s international reach.

As co-founders of Killswitch Engage, guitarist/backing vocalist Adam Dutkiewicz, guitarist Joel Stroetzel, bassist Mike D’Antonio, and lead vocalist Jesse Leach (who returned four years ago after a decade-long absence) together with longtime drummer Justin Foley continue to make trend-resistant, timeless heavy music that feeds the soul, touches the heart, and strengthens the mind. Spending much of their career on the road, Killswitch Engage have enjoyed premium slots on major U.S. tours, including OzzFest, Warped Tour, Taste of Chaos, Rockstar Energy Mayhem Fest, Music As a Weapon, and Trespass America, as well as countless international festivals around the globe. Having shared the stage with acts ranging from Rise Against to Slayer, the diversity and versatility of their touring is unparalleled. Their songs have been featured on Guitar Hero III, Rock Band, John Madden, the Resident Evil III soundtrack, and as entrance music for WWE wrestling champ CM Punk. The band’s compelling history can be seen in their latest release, Beyond the Flames: Home Video Vol II, a treasure trove of gripping content, containing 3.5 hours of footage, including a 75-minute documentary that chronicles the return of original vocalist Leach after nearly a decade away from the band he helped form, as well as tons of live footage from around the globe. The band recently announced its signing to Metal Blade Records, with a new album planned for 2019.

About Parkway Drive:
The five-piece metal band from Byron Bay, Australia formed in 2002. The band features vocalist Winston McCall, guitarists Luke Kilpatrick and Jeff Ling, bassist Jia O’Connor, and drummer Ben Gordon. For more than a decade, the band has stood at the forefront of heavy music worldwide, matching their uncompromising urgency with a powerful musicality. Parkway Drive has released six studio albums, all on Epitaph: Killing with a Smile (2005), Horizons (2007), Deep Blue (2010), Atlas (2012), IRE (2015), and Reverence (2018). The band has also released two platinum-selling DVDs, one EP, a split album with I Killed The Prom Queen, and one book.

Reverence, produced by longtime Parkway Drive sound engineer George Hadjichristou, is the band’s most sonically adventurous album and their most personal album to date. With its barrage of heart-shredding anthems, the album was closely informed by a series of tragedies the band had endured over the past few years. Reverence debuted in the US at #2 Current Hard Music, #34 Billboard Top 200 and #2 Current Rock Albums. The album debuted #1 in Australia and recently won the 2018 ARIA Award for Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Album.

Globally praised for their powerful live show, the band has had massive performances at festivals all over the world including Welcome to Rockville (US), Aftershock (US), Carolina Rebellion (US), Northern Invasion (US), Rock on the Range (US), Warped Tour (US), Montebello Rockfest (CA), Rock Am Ring (DE), Rock Im Park (DE), Hurricane/Southside (DE), Download Festival (UK), Reading and Leeds (UK). Greenfield (CH), Nova Rock (AT), Lowlands (NL), and Pukkelpop (BE).
