Delain Posts New Music Video “Masters Of Destiny” Online

The dramatic and cinematic track, “Masters Of Destiny”, is the first single from Delain’s upcoming release, Hunter’s Moon. It is one of the four brand new studio tracks that are part of the stunning live album + BluRay, which will be released on February 22nd via Napalm Records.

Delain travelled to Iceland to underline the mystic that lies within the brand new single accompanied by a breathtaking video, “Masters Of Destiny”. Watch below.

Says the band: “This is an exciting release for us, and a special one too on account of the fact that we chose one of our more elaborate and unconventional compositions for our first single, showcasing another side of ourselves as a band. We wanted to make the video like an extension to the music; to match the orchestral, instrumental and vocal bombast of the song with visuals of nature in all its grandeur, and we found the perfect backdrop for this in beautiful Iceland. We are very proud to present to you the music video for our brand new track Masters of Destiny. We hope you enjoy the journey.”

Lost 1996 Scum Album To See Release Via Blood Music

Blood Music is extremely proud to present to its roster a one-of-a-kind release by the forgotten classic Finnish death metal outfit Scum.

Hailing from Parikkala (eastern Finland), this obscure five-piece formed in 1990 – at the onset of Finnish death metal, and quickly landed a spot on Quorthon (Bathory)’s Black Mark Production label.

Scum debuted with two back-to-back albums in the mid-90s. The first was a solid straight-up doom/death metal effort titled “Mother Nature” (1994). The second release took the music in a decidedly more psychedelic manner, and was unleashed as “Purple Dreams & Magic Poems” (1995).

Being overshadowed by renowned Swedish death metal outfits on the same label (Edge of Sanity / Necrophobic) and interesting bands at home (Amorphis / Demigod), Scum unfortunately failed to reach its intended audience at the time. In 1996, Scum recorded final album, titled “Garden of Shadows.” After sending in to Quorthon to release, Scum never heard from the label again. The band broke up soon after, and the album was cast aside, in a drawer, never to be heard.

After nearly three years(!) of negotiations, the band was finally encouraged to send the original master of the album to Blood Music. This is a first time publication of a classic death metal album that has never been heard before!

Scum included the original artwork (in physical form), as well as original photos from the era. These assets have been used to authentically recreate the entire package as it was originally intended and envisioned. Since the album was completed in 1996 and slated for release then, the label and band made the collective decision to release “Garden of Shadows” in 2016, on the 20th anniversary of never being heard.

Pre-orders are active now right here and the track listing is as follows:

1. I Am Messiah
2. Golden Seeds
3. Mountain of the Hawks
4. Rise Like Morning Star
5. On the Altar of the Mystic Centuries (Prologue)
6. Trilogian Tales
7. Black Swan
8. Garden of Shadows (Epilogue)

Obsequiae Announces New Album “Aria Of Vernal Tombs”

20 Buck Spin is honored to announce the upcoming second full-length recording from medieval cult Minnesota metal outfit, Obsequiae. The label comments:

“Last year, 20 Buck Spin released the first vinyl edition of Obsequiae’s masterfully unique 2011 debut album, ‘Suspended In The Brume Of Eos.’ Perhaps the only band that might fit as well on a label like Harmonia Mundi as on 20 Buck Spin, the band now re-emerges with ‘Aria Of Vernal Tombs,’ having painstakingly shaped their second opus over four years in the same way an expert woodworker plies her trade to craft singular works of exquisite beauty.

“As before, traditional medieval source material, this time interpreted via Obsequiae’s Vincente La Camero Marino’s sparse, sorrowful harp pieces, appears throughout Aria Of Vernal Tombs providing a foundation on which to base the longer metal-based sagas that form the album’s core. Black metal, death metal, traditional heavy metal and medieval music are all weaved seamlessly together in baroque yet abrasive reverence on Aria…, resulting in a remarkably original long-player.

“With a wet clarity to the incandescent production that cites underrated obscurities like Sacramentum’s ‘Far Away From The Sun’ and Eucharist’s ‘A Velvet Creation,’ along with the early works of Varathron, Samael, and Rotting Christ, the atmosphere created on ‘Aria Of Vernal Tombs’ brings to 2015 what such bands strangely but sincerely captured years ago. Every sound and shimmering tone is intentional and essential to this rite of Spring.”

20 Buck Spin will release “Aria Of Vernal Tombs” on CD and through digital outlets on May 12th, and will follow with the LP version on June 9th. The track listing is:

1. Ay que por muy gran fremosura
2. Autumnal Pyre
3. Until All Ages Fall
4. L’amour dont sui espris
5. Pools of a Vernal Paradise
6. Anlace and Heart
7. The Anchoress’s Orison
8. In the Absence of Light
9. Wilweorthunga
10. Des oge mais quer eu trobar
11. Orphic Rites of the Mystic
