Nibiru Reveals New Album “Salbrox” Details

Italian doom metal outfit Nibiru has announced that they will be releasing a new album entitled, “Salbrox” through Ritual Productions this May, with a release date to be confirmed shortly.

Titled “Salbrox,” meaning “Sulfur” in the Enochian language of which the band profess, the rite is a cataclysmic psychic journey of visionary magick, elemental prophecies and esoteric supernormality. Tribal percussion, evocative mantras and hypnotic drones imbued with the band’s amalgamation of black metal, doom metal and psychedelic textures formulates a fascinating, idiosyncratic art. Vocals harbour a possessed and rasping quality that surely summon spectres far beyond our comprehensible realm, bringing forth a divination of the self.

Conceptually and spiritually, “Salbrox” is inspired by the continuous re-adjustment between disharmony and balance. “Salbrox” aims, via mysterious and enigmatic practices that reflect an ouroboros quality of death of rebirth, to explore the transmutation and regeneration of the human being that occurs at every level – spirit, soul and corporeality.

In turn, the alchemical practice of “Solve et Coagula” – meaning to dissolve and coagulate – is the foundation of “Salbrox.” This ethos points towards the liberation of the self from impurities and the destruction of the Ego, bringing forth an alternative awareness and synthesis of the self. The rite is thus a magick process that follows the key principles of alchemy, merging deep, ancestral knowledge into sound voyages that awaken the darkest and most hidden chords of consciousness.

“Salbrox” was recorded live and mixed at Music Lab Studio, Italy by Emiliano Pilloni and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Produced by Nibiru.

The Three Tremors Releases Second Music Video “Bullets For The Damned”

The Three Tremors, (featuring Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens, Sean Peck and Harry Conklin,) has posted a new music video online for the song, “Bullets For The Damned.” You can check it out below. The song comes from the band’s self-titled debut, which is available now through Steel Cartel Records, is the second track from the record to receive the music video treatment, following, “Wrath Of Asgard.”

The CGI-heavy clip, which features the Tremors trading vocal licks on a desolate, post-apocalyptic landscape, where they also do battle with giant, scorpion-like alien creatures.

“It was all green screen stuff. I felt like Arnold Schwarzenegger for a second,” Owens tells Billboard. “It’s kind of a throwback, like the whole CD is — it comes straight at ya, a lot of stuff going on and really a power punch of everything. That’s what this (group) is — the video’s over the top, the music is over the top, everything.That’s something that’s been gone for a while, so we’re trying to bring it back.”

Destruction Recruits New Guitarist Damir Eskic; Reveals New Album Release Date

Today, German thrash-legends Destruction are proud to welcome Damir Eskic as their second guitarist alongside Mike. Damir is a Swiss guitar player with Bosnian decent and works as a guitar teacher, himself being a former pupil of Tommy Vetterli (Coroner). He also plays in a Heavy Metal band called Gomorra and already contributed to 3 solos of Destruction’s 2016 album “Under attack”.

The band prepared a short video clip, in which they properly introduce their new member. You can check it out below.

Frontman Schmier comments:
“Yes – we finally did it again!

“For many years we’ve been talking about this but we needed the RIGHT guy! Damir Eskic is now that dude! He is a super-skilled player and also a good friend of the band. He will surely make some jaws drop and pay tribute to the history of Destruction as he is also a fan of our music!
To be a trio, was a special thing for us, that we did with pride for many years but also Destruction had a period where we were a four piece with a second guitar. Now it was the RIGHT time to get that option back! We know there are many fans out there that have been waiting a long time for this.

“We have composed and recorded the whole new album with two guitars and of course this will make us an even more intense live act and give us the chance to play songs again that we’ve not been able to play for many years…exciting times ahead! Let’s call this a reinvention!

“With Randy Black on the drums and Damir Eskic on the lead guitar, we have the fresh blood in the band that is sometimes needed to reach new goals, it will keep the THRASHMACHINE strong and ready for new adventures!

“See you all on the road soon – the new record is coming on August 8th via Nuclear Blast!”

Damir adds:
“I am of course very happy to be a part of this Thrash Metal family and to join one of the best bands of the genre. To record three guest solos on the
Under Attack’ album was already a big deal for me, now some years later, we’ve become close friends and I am really excited to be a part of this! I am looking forward to meeting the fans all over the globe and to thrash the stage with the boys!”

Campaign Launched To Have Napalm Death Play MTV Music Week Festival

A campaign has been launched to have grindcore pioneers Napalm Death perform at the upcoming MTV Music Week event, a four day long pop festival which is also expected to feature include quadruple platinum selling girl group Little Mix and former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher, although no names have been confirmed as of yet. Popular bookmakers Paddy Power has Napalm Death at 12/1 to be added to the festival, above other British mainstream acts like Professor Green. A poll to determine which act festival goers would most like to see is running at the Plymouth Argus.

Napalm Death are no strangers to playing outside their comfort zone, having previously played the Glastonbury Festival in 2017 (which was headlined by Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran and Radiohead) and this year will perform at the Boomtown Fair, alongside such acts as Lauryn Hill and UB40. They’ve also appeared in mainstream shows such as Never Mind The Buzzcocks, TFI Friday and the Craig Charles presented children’s show, What’s That Noise?

Metal Underground recently spoke with Napalm Death frontman Barney Greenway, discussing progress on their new album, the status of guitarist Mitch Harris, Brexit and his time with Extreme Noise Terror (who are also playing this year’s Boomtown Fair.) You can check it out below.

Triptykon’s Tom G. Warrior Recording Debut Niryth Album; Triptykon Live Release Near Completion

Triptykon and former Hellhammer/Celtic Frost mastermind Tom G. Warrior has revealed that he is currently working on the debut Niryth album in Switzerland with Triptykon/ex Celtic Frost guitarist V. Santura. In a post on his blog, Delineation II, he said:

“Wednesday evening, late at night, and I am sitting in my spartan room in an exceptionally old-fashioned countryside inn, located in a tiny Bavarian village surrounded by endless fields and forests covered in lingering snow. We have just finished the third day this week of recording and mixing sessions at Triptykon guitarist V. Santura’s equally remote Woodshed Studio. It is a pleasant feeling of accomplishment that fills me this evening, after many months of frequently challenging work on music and lyrics behind the scenes.

“These past few days, we finished all vocal recordings for Niryth’s initial recorded music and then began mixing the material. Only one of the songs remains to be mixed tomorrow. And we also completed the recording sessions for V. Santura’s pilot lead guitar and my pilot vocals for the final, major part of the Celtic Frost/Triptykon Requiem. I am deeply grateful to V. Santura for his graceful patience and considerable talent, without which neither the Requiem nor Niryth’s sessions would have yielded such unique results.

“And when V. Santura and I sent the Niryth mixes to my songwriting partner and group co-founder Mia Wallace, who was unable to attend these sessions due to a prior and inescapable commitment, her emotionally positive reaction confirmed that we appear to be on the right path with this project.”

Niryth is a new project from Warrior which features three bassists (including himself) and no guitars. He’s joined in the group by Triptykon bassist Vanja Slajh and Mia Wallace (of The True Endless, Skoll and currently of the Hellhammer spin off Triumph Of Death and live bassist for former Immortal frontman Abbath,) as well as drummer Pidi Leuenberger.

In addition to this, Warrior revealed in a previous blog post that he has been working on a live Triptykon release entitled, “Requiem.” It’s not yet known if this will be a CD/download or home video release. In his blog, he stated:

“At long last, after some extremely regrettable delays due to my commitment to the deadline to finish the music for Triptykon’s forthcoming Requiem live concert, we are now close to completing Niryth’s initial recording sessions. This was originally scheduled to take place by the end of last year, and I deeply regret having been the cumbersome obstacle in meeting this goal.

“The music Mia Wallace and I have written for Niryth has by now become a measure darker than it originally appeared to transpire, not least due to the vocals. It is monolithic and delicate at the same time, heavy and enigmatically melodic, mesmerisingly grooving while often psychedelic. And we are working on more.”
