Nuclear Blast Records Inks Deal With Letters From The Colony

A highly complex construct of math metal, crushing death elements and virtuosic shoegaze moments – Letters From The Colony creates more than just songs. The young progressive extreme metal architects from Borlänge in Sweden are building tracks that are able to catapult them right into the league of bands such as Meshuggah, Opeth or Gojira with their first album only just on the horizon.

The five young musicians are proud to announce that they have signed a deal with Nuclear Blast whilst the debut album “Vignette” is currently in the making. But lowering its sights for the debut album or taking just small steps at the beginning of a career has always been out of the question for Letters From The Colony. The first full-length release is already being mastered by Jens Bogren (Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, Pradise Lost), whilst Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, PAIN, Lindemann) has not shied away from declaring a big recommendation for the band.

Letters From The Colony builds upon the intersection between perfection and ordered chaos; the unbridled joy of experimentation and virtuosic instrument mastery. They deliver highly complex songs full of unbounded aggression and progressive structures, but also do not shy away from playing saxophone alongside guitars or sampling the call of a deer into a track!

Obviously, the cover artwork choice for the band is another proof of the quintet’s dazzling multi-faceted qualities, and it arrives as rare and vibrant as they come (see below), pushing Letters From The Colony into a completely new niche compartment of technically challenging extreme metal.

More info, as well as the first songs from ‘Vignette’ will be unveiled soon.

Enslaved Premieres New Song “Storm Son” From Upcoming New Album “E”

Enslaved premieres a new song entitled “Storm Son”, taken from the upcoming new album “E”, which will be released on October 13th through Nuclear Blast Records.

Check out now “Storm Son” below.

Commented the band’s Ivar Bjørnson of the song:

“‘Storm Son‘ deals with the duality of man and nature, how important and basic that relationship is. Everything we do and create are imitations of nature; as we evolved from nature, that is how it must be – yet modern man thinks he and she is independent of nature, that we somehow are so superior that we do not have to take nature into consideration other than as a backdrop for shitty movies. Or festivals. Losing touch with nature is basically to lose touch with being human.”

Decrepit Birth Posts “Hieroglyphic” Playthrough Video

U.S. technical death metal crew Decrepit Birth has shared a playthrough video for the song “Hieroglyphic,” taken from new album “Axis Mundi,” out now via Agonia Records (Europe / ROW) and Nuclear Blast Records (North America).

“We’ve gone through an evolution throughout the years” says founding member and primary songwriter Matt Sotelo. “The last couple of albums we had, ‘Diminishing Between Worlds’ and ‘Polarity,’ were more progressive death metal. They were different from ‘…And Time Begins,’ which is a different genre of death metal. It’s more brutal.

“I’m the type of guy who likes to experiment. ‘…And Time Begins’ has no solos. It’s all really fast palm-muted riffs. The other albums breathed more with the guitars. I let chords ring out on ‘Diminishing Between Worlds’ and ‘Polarity.’ ‘Axis Mundi’ is combination of all the stuff I’m into. I like it a lot right now. It’s more melodic. The riffs repeat intentionally. I want to have fun with these songs”.
