Beyond Creation Premiere New Song “Entre Suffrage Et Mirage”

Another new Beyond Creation song titled “Entre Suffrage Et Mirage“ has premiered and is streaming below. The band’s upcoming new album “Algorythm” will be released on October 12th via Season Of Mist.

Beyond Creation had the following to say of it:

“We’re excited to release our 3rd promo single ‘Entre Suffrage et Mirage‘ as a band studio play-through! This song is a bit different than both previously released songs off ‘Algorythm‘, fairly leaning towards our more technical roots.

We wanted to connect with our long-time fans with a fast and catchy song, with multiple layers of melodic elements, while still keeping the vibe we went for in ‘Algorythm‘. In this video, we were also able to capture some of the great ambiance offered by the amazing studio ‘The Grid‘, in Montreal.”

Chthonic Posts New Video, “Millenia’s Faith Undone” Online

Chthonic, the Taiwanese metal band recognized with its unique signature of performance, is to release an all new album, “Battlefields Of Asura,” on October 10th, the first new music since 2013’s full-length album, “Butik.” A video for the song “Millennia’s Faith Undone” can be found below.

According to Chthonic, the new album depicts the adventure of deities in Taiwan through eleven songs carrying messages about resistance, freedom and fraternity. The journey is full of hostility, adversary, impregnable fortresses and desires but also inspires infinite courage to search for eternal wisdom. Anyone deeply touched by this album will eventually realize that it is the origin of all thrilling epic stories portrayed in the past albums. This album sounds like gods versus devils and fights among evil spirits on the surface; however, everyone can feel the empathy of fury, grief and even strength of resurgence from the lyrics.

When asked why the band names the new album “Battlefields Of Asura,” Doris, the spokesperson of Chthonic, states, “This album is the prologue of the albums released in the past and was inspired by and dedicated to the activists of Taiwan’s first modern political reform movement back in 1920s.”

Pre-orders on CD and vinyl are available now. The album marks the first vinyl released by Chthonic since its formation. Pre-order of album box set is also available in Taiwan, Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong which includes the album, T-shirt and caps, thematic candle glass, rosary plus 7″ vinyl collaboration single of Chthonic and Denise Ho.

Behemoth Reveals New Album, “I Loved You At Your Darkest” Details

“It doesn’t get more blasphemous than this,” declares Behemoth mastermind Nergal, about the band’s upcoming album, “I Loved You At Your Darkest” – due out October 5th via Metal Blade Records (North America) / Nuclear Blast (Europe). While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band, its origin might surprise fans even more than the words themselves.

“It’s a verse from the Bible,” Nergal reveals. “It’s actually a quote from Jesus Christ himself. For Behemoth to use it as the basis of our record, it’s sacrilege to the extreme.”

A crushing salvo of black metal majesty replete with hellish riffs, thundering drum cannonades and soaring liturgical choirs reminiscent of classic horror cinema, I Loved You At Your Darkest is the group’s most dynamic record yet: extreme and radical on one hand, but also more rock-oriented than any other Behemoth release.

Produced by the band themselves, with drum co-production by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames), mixing by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Children Of Bodom) mastering by Tom Baker (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson), and a 17-piece Polish orchestra arranged by Jan Stoklosa.

The following formats are available in North America, along with an exclusive t-shirt:

– jewelcase CD
– digibook CD (hardcover digibook, 40 page booklet)
– baltic amber vinyl (limited to 600 copies)
– opaque white w/ gold splatter vinyl (Metal Blade Records exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
– black / gold split vinyl (Metal Blade Records exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
– clear w/ smoky black swirl (Nuclear Blast US exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
– clear w/ grey inside (Kings Road exclusive – limited to 500 copies)
– “God = Dog” 7″ picture disc (Metal Blade Records exclusive – limited to 666 copies)

“I Loved You At Your Darkest” tracklisting:
