New Album “Strength In Numbers” Announced By The Haunted

After a strong finish on a series of tour dates across the UK and Central Europe alongside heavy-hitters’ Meshuggah and Arch Enemy respectively, Swedish thrash metal act The Haunted has been busy completing the recording and mixing process of the upcoming 9th studio album effort.

Recorded at Parlour Studios in the UK with producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, The Exploited), the album is entitled “Strength In Numbers” and will be released worldwide via Century Media Records on August 25, 2017. More information on the album is expected soon.

Guitarist Ola Englund has checked in with the following comment: “Working on ‘Strength In Numbers’ with Russ Russell as an engineer and producer has been an incredible experience. His attitude and positivity has helped us to truly do our best when recording. He’s just a killer guy to be around!”, before adding: “All the tracking for the album has been completed and Russ is right in the middle of mixing and mastering it. And from the early mixes I’ve heard, it’s shaping up to be insanely heavy. No clean singing, no banjo, no pickup trucks…so fans of country music are gonna hate it, haha! Seriously: Heads are gonna roll. In a good way…”

A video teaser from their recording sessions can now be seen below:

Having recently been announced to appear at the lauded Sweden Rock Festival, the band has also confirmed a string of tour dates across Scandinavia in support of their upcoming release in late August/early September. A full list of upcoming appearances is as follows:

Farsot Unveils New Album “Fail-Lure”

Experimental black metal band Farsot will release third album, “Fail?Lure,” on April 21st via Prophecy Productions / Lupus Lounge. Produced by V. Santura (Triptykon, Secrets Of The Moon), the album merges Farsot’s avant-garde songwriting with original black metal arrangements and a dynamism that could only come from one of the world’s most ambitious underground bands.

A blend of failure and allure, the album is conceptually inspired by the critically acclaimed Peter Greenaway film, “Drowning by Numbers” which won the award for Best Artistic Contribution at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival, as well as Art Nouveau works such as Khnopff’s “Ishtar,” Klimt’s “Water Serpents,” Kotarbinski’s “Kiss of Medusa,” and Schwabe’s “La Vague.”

The record’s album art features a sculpture by French artist Denis Lavoyer that depicts a female idealized with threatening, claw-like branches for arms, addressing the inevitable dilemma between fascination and mania and seeming rifts between the sexes; it is an allegory of life as an endless game that cannot be won.

1. Vitriolic
2. Circular Stains
3. With Obsidian Hands
4. Undercurrents
5. The Antagonist
6. A Hundred To Nothing

Darkest Hour Posts New Song “Timeless Numbers”

Darkest Hour, which recently announced the March 10th release of ninth album “Godless Prophets & The Migrant Flora” via Southern Lord Recordings, today shares a second song from the 12-track album. Check out “Timeless Numbers” below.

“This song, like ‘Knife in the Safe Room,’ has a dual meaning,” explains Darkest Hour guitar player Mike Schleibaum. “The first is the continuation of the story line that permeates the album. In this track we see our main character struggle with the inherit history of the culture he/she was brought up in and the realization that it was always in our nature to divide and consume ourselves. “

Mike goes on to say, “In simpler terms, it is a reflection on the drain of modern life and the subsequent division / internal destruction that this life seems to always lead humanity towards. As we travel the world, we have seen how no matter where you are, humans divide themselves. We interact with immigration policies, boarders and barriers that are cultural, economic, and political everyday that we are on tour. While traveling the world we have done our best to spread a message of anti-nationalism, unilateral respect for humans of all forms, and lastly the basic idea that music/art is more powerful and more eternal then religion, nation states, or even TECHNOLOGY!”

Frost Posts “Numbers” Music Video

Frost* will release new album “Falling Satellites” this Friday and has now launched a brand new video for the track “Numbers.” Produced by Crystal Spotlight, you can watch the video below.

Jem Godfrey had this to say about the video: “Us being us, we wanted to try something a bit different for the Numbers video that would make it more interesting visually than just 4 blokes in a room wobbling about so we shot everything using bit of software called DepthKit via a Kinect sensor.

“This enabled us to create 3D modelled versions of ourselves that could continue to freely be rotated, moved and manipulated even after filming was completed. The render times were horrendous, but Crystal Spotlight did an incredible job putting it all together. I think the end result is magnificently Frost*-ish and suits the song very well.”
