– January 9th, 2019 –

February 8th sees Downfall Of Gaia release their new album, Ethic Of Radical Finitude! In anticipation of this release, Downfall Of Gaia have now launched a video for the second single, “We Pursue The Serpent Of Time”, which can be viewed at: youtu.be/wlodzclp9Ek

Downfall Of Gaia comments: “Today we’re excited to share the music video for our song ‘We Pursue The Serpent Of Time’, the second new song of our upcoming album, ‘Ethic Of Radical Finitude‘! This time we’re joined by our friend Nikita Kamprad from Der Weg einer Freiheit for some guest vocals, and we hope you enjoy this collaboration as much as we do! Thanks for listening!”

For another preview of Ethic Of Radical Finitude, the first single, “As Our Bones Break To The Dance”, can be heard at: metalblade.com/downfallofgaia – where the album can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–Hardcover Digipak-CD
–180 g black vinyl
–Dead gold marbeld vinyl (ltd. 300 – EU-exclusive)
–Grey marbled vinyl (ltd. 200 – EU-exclusive)
–Pic-LP (ltd. 200 – EU-exclusive)
–White/Black split vinyl (ltd. 100 – Evil Greed exclusive)
–Red/black marbled vinyl (ltd. 200 – US-exclusive)
–Clear vinyl (ltd. 100 – US-exclusive)

Ethic Of Radical Finitude is the international quartet’s most melodic, most structured and most dynamic release to date, once more building upon the epic and unique sludgy, crusty, exploratory metallic sound that has organically evolved with every release. “It combines elements from our earlier releases with the path we took on ‘Atrophy‘ (2016),” states guitarist/vocalist Dominik Goncalves dos Reis. “There are long atmospheric parts with enough time to breathe, enough time to unfold, and on the other side there are harsh and melodic blastbeats. Each song is some kind of journey, with emotional ups and downs.”

Ethic Of Radical Finitude track-listing:
1. Seduced By…
2. The Grotesque Illusion Of Being
3. We Pursue The Serpent Of Time
4. Guided Through A Starless Night
5. As Our Bones Break To The Dance

Hamferð releases live video of “Evst”

– December 4th, 2018 –

Set to play live shows in Scandinavia this week

Faroese doomsters Hamferð have released a live video recording of “Evst”, the title track off the band’s 2013 debut LP. The song was performed at the release show for their latest album, Támsins likam, on March 17th, 2018 at the old Sjonleikarahusið theater in Torshavn, Faroe Islands. Watch the video now at: youtu.be/T-XPLG40vSA

Hamferð previously released the live recorded video of “Stygd” from the same concert, the second track off Támsins likam, released on Metal Blade earlier this year. See it here: youtu.be/pLtwVGB7f60

Singer Jon Aldara comments: “This concert was a meticulous production in regards to performance, sound and lighting, and we felt it was the perfect opportunity to record it properly. It’s a great feeling to have a live recording of Hamferð that does not come from an iPhone or from a festival production that we had little to no control over. We took everything in our own hands and went the whole nine yards with a brilliant crew and all the high-end equipment we could get our hands on. Luckily, I really think it shows!”

Hamferð will head out on a tour of Scandinavia this week, notably playing Sweden for the first time in their 10-year long career. See below for all dates!

Hamferð tour dates
w/ Svartmalm

Dec. 5 – Kobenhavn, Denmark – Beta 2300
Dec. 6 – Odense, Denmark – Posten
Dec. 7 – Goteborg, Sweden – Sticky Fingers w/ October Tide
Dec. 8 – Oslo, Norway – Revolver
Dec. 9 – Trondheim, Norway – Hjorten Scene

Támsins likam was released in January via Metal Blade Records! To preview and purchase the album, please visit: metalblade.com/hamferd

Mayhem To Release Dead Era Box Set, “Cursed In Eternity”

Peaceville has announced Cursed In Eternity, a comprehensive limited edition deluxe set covering the influential Dead era of Norwegian legends Mayhem. The set will be available on November 16th, and is available for pre-order here.

Containing six picture disc LPs, 7”, 92 page book, posters, and DVD featuring the never seen before Jessheim and Sarpsborg live shows plus Henhouse rehearsals.

“We are glad to be able to honour the Euronymous and Dead era in this comprehensive box set that Peaceville and Finn Håkon Rødland put together for the band.” – Necrobutcher & Hellhammer

Mayhem, the Norwegian pioneers responsible for invigorating a global scene alongside originators such as Venom, Celtic Frost & Bathory, formed in 1984, and with a long history of tragedy, intrigue and infamy have become truly revered legends of black metal, with a large part of their legacy established in the late 80’s & early 90’s, when guitarist Euronymous and bassist Necrobutcher welcomed Hellhammer on drums and Dead on vocals, to help shape a new era of darkness and Armageddon.

Marking 30 years since this particularly iconic and subsequently ill-fated union, the deluxe Cursed In Eternity set contains a full and expansive collection of work by the band during that period. This includes Mayhem’s legendary 1990 live dates in Norway and short German tour, plus the additions of the Out From The Dark and Henhouse rehearsal sessions.

These six titles are all presented on a special limited picture disc format for this release, with the set also including a 7” single vinyl containing two studio tracks (“Freezing Moon” and “Carnage”); recorded initially for the CBR compilation Projections Of A Stained Mind and here featuring sleeve artwork made at the time by former vocalist, Maniac.

Along with a full 92-page book recalling tales of their legendary shows and inspirational music from both band members and others from the scene, and including letters and previously unseen photographs sourced from personal archives, all in collaboration with the True Mayhem Collection, Cursed In Eternity also presents, for the first time, a DVD containing never-seen-before footage from the entire Jessheim concert, plus front of stage video from the Sarpsborg show, giving a priceless insight into how these shows were witnessed at the time. The DVD is completed by full footage of the Henhouse rehearsals.

As a final bonus inclusion, Cursed In Eternity features posters from the original designs and Zeitz photo from those iconic live shows.

Contents:

– 92-Page Perfect Bound Book

– LP 1 – Henhouse Rehearsals
– LP 2 – Out From The Dark
– LP 3 – Live In Jessheim
– LP 4 – Live In Sarpsborg
– LP 5 – Live In Zeitz
– LP 6 – Live In Leipzig

– 7” – Freezing Moon / Carnage (Studio)

– DVD:
– Live In Jessheim
– Live In Sarpsborg

Fight the Fight launches pre-order for self-titled debut album

– January 10th, 2018 –

Launches new video for “The Other Side”

Last January, Norway’s Fight The Fight released their self-titled debut digitally in the USA – now, the band is giving the record a proper physical release in the States via Blacklight Media. Due out February 9th, Fight the Fight can be pre-ordered now at: blacklightmediarecords.com/fightthefight – where a new video (directed by Kyrre Larsen) for the album track “The Other Side” can be viewed.

Fight the Fight comments: “We are super stoked to show you guys the video for ‘The Other Side’. This is a song about choosing sides, having a look inside your own truth and what makes you – you. Fuck the expectations of others or the society. Fight for it, be yourself.

Fight the Fight track-listing:
1. Fight the Fight
2. The Edge
3. The Other Side
4. Perfect Combination
5. Addictions
6. This Is War
7. My Emperor
8. Patient Zero

Barely breaking into their twenties, Fight the Fight has already been a band – though under a different name (Faenskap) – for more than a decade. It’s the classic story of childhood friends and schoolmates whose dreams and ambitions run high, and ultimately form a band together. Pushing the whole project to the limit of their capabilities, they succeeded in reaching their goal: creating a record that reflects their vision of what’s to come. Not your average album, this mature, well-composed rock/metal grenade immediately explodes with memorable hooks, catchphrases and choruses, and the rock, punk, metal and black metal elements are woven into a unique and progressive sound. With this debut, it is clear that Fight the Fight is destined for great things.

Fight the Fight line-up:
Lars Vegas – vocals
Amok – guitars
Lord – guitars
HM – bass
Bjorn Dugstad Ronnow – drums
