Cursed Moon Signs Record Deal With Hells Headbangers

Hells Headbangers is proud to announce the signing of Cursed Moon. The label issued this statement:

“A one-man entity hailing from the greater Los Angeles area, Cursed Moon is one of the most exciting newcomers the label has come across. Branding itself ‘deathwave,’ Cursed Moon uniquely combines classic goth-rock from the ’80s with early black metal sounds, weaving a witchy atmosphere whilst being grounded firmly in the grit of evil heavy metal. It’s a sound that’s immediately memorable and positively addicting – and not to mention one that will appeal to a wide variety of metalheads, punks, and other assorted freaks.”

“Well, Cursed Moon started last year (2015), when I began the writing process of it during late September,” explains mainman Sal “Hellraiser” Yanez. “I was pretty much just jamming on my guitar while I was listening to The Sisters of Mercy and I thought to myself, ‘This would actually be fun to play.’ So, just for fun, I wrote one song and I was really impressed on how it came out, so then I wrote second song and I also liked it. The style of music I was writing was different; it was something I haven’t heard of any band doing.”

Yanez goes on to say, “It was some sort of post-punk with an evil twist to it. It had band influences like Fields of the Nephilim, The Sisters of Mercy, and Christian Death mixed with Bathory, Celtic Frost, Amebix, King Diamond, etc. After that moment, I then decided to make it into a real music project and pursue it. That’s when the name Cursed Moon was born along with the unique style of subgenre in what I call ‘deathwave.’ After I had enough songs written, I wanted to go to a legit studio and record them and do them right so I can put out an album. I wrote and recorded all the instruments myself, since this was just a one-man music project. Now, thanks to Hells Headbangers for signing and doing an official album release and for also believing in the Cursed Moon vision, I am currently putting together a live lineup for shows/tours that’s almost complete. That is just the beginning in what’s to come…”

The first fruit of this union will be Cursed Moon’s self-titled debut album, which will be released by Hells Headbangers during the first quarter of 2017 on CD and vinyl formats. In the meantime, a four-song sampling of Cursed Moon’s unique deathwave can be heard below.

Fields Of The Nephilim Posts "Penetration" Video Clip

Fields Of The Nephilim has unveiled the first track from the forthcoming “Ceromonies” project, which can be found in the player below. The band issued the following press release:

“‘Penetration’ is a dazzling assault on the senses; a ferocious blast of machine-gun strobes and billowing dry-ice that switches between vivid colours and intense monochromatic flashes, set to a precise, brutal and ritualistic soundtrack.

“A demonstration of their dark power which first featured on the ‘Zoon’ album, ‘Penetration’ is an example of the Nephilim at their most extreme, a track which welds the jackhammer rhythms and guttural roar of that album’s industrial vision to the chiming guitars and dramatic melodies for which they are most widely known.

“Whilst other tracks such as the elegaically beautiful epic ‘Wail Of Sumer / And There Will Your Heart Be Also’ from the ‘Elizium’ period demonstrate the softer, more atmospheric moments in their canon, and the likes of ‘Moonchild’, ‘Preacher Man’ and ‘Psychonaut’ represent some of the band’s biggest hits, ‘Penetration’ is a unexpected shot of adrenaline straight to the heart.”

The “Ceremonies” live album and DVD is set for release on March 19th, 2012.
