The Offering Signs Record Deal With Century Media

Century Media Records is proud to announce the worldwide signing of The Offering. The group’s self-titled debut EP was produced by guitarist Nishad George, with engineering help from Grammy award-winning engineer Mark Fuller, and mixed and mastered by Andre Alvinzi and Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.

Check out the EP’s opening track “Rat King” below, and stay tuned for the five track release to officially drop November 10th digitally. The Offering’s first full-length studio album is scheduled to drop in summer/autumn 2018.

Century Media Records comments: “Hailing from Boston, Massachusetts the five players behind The Offering first came together in Tampa, Florida to invent their signature version of progressive, furious, and technical power metal with a strong death and thrash approach.

“The wild mixture of elements from many metal genres puts The Offering G in a class of its own: deep musical compositions, extreme, adept vocal performances, a powerful modern sound, and profound song arrangement separate The Offering from the metal pack. This is modern heavy metal for open-minded listeners who can imagine a hybrid of Nevermore, Death, At The Gates, Psychotic Waltz, Control Denied and Iced Earth.”

Hexenklad Announces “Spirit Of The Stone” Album Release

The story of Canadian blackened folk metal crew Hexenklad began with the planting of a seed, an idea to create a band that was as deep in meaning and feeling as it was heavy and aggressive in sound.

Over time, this seed grew to envelope the forest floor, sprouting new life in its terrestrial journey. Of interesting note, the band features within its ranks both father and son – the old, wisdom-endowed seed and seedling, working together to germinate this Northern boreal with new life.

Out of this was born “Spirit Of The Stone,” the band’s debut album that will officially drop July 28th via CDN Records. Check out the song “Returned” below and you can pre-order the album right here.

1. In This Life or the Next
2. To Whom Veer Sinistral
3 At the Ends of Existence
4. Returned
5. At Dusk
6. In Waking Tymes
7. Path to Ruin
8. An Offering

Moloken Streams Full New Album “All Is Left To See”

“All Is Left To See” – the third long player from Swedish progressive sludge bringers Moloken – is now streaming online in its entirety.

A monolithic wall of dread and despair shrouded in sulfuric atmospheres and an overwhelming sentiment of desolation, Moloken’s “All Is Left To See” centers itself around a lyrical concept called mörkrets kärna (Swedish for “darkness core”), and serves as a veritable soundtrack to falling into a pit of misery.

“All Is Left To See” is Moloken”s first studio offering in four years, recorded mostly live by Pelle Henriksson at Tonteknik Recording (Refused, Breach, Cult of Luna, Meshuggah, Entombed) and featuring the cover renderings of Costin Chioreanu (Bloodbath, Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride, Ulver etc). The album will officially drop in Europe on October 23, with North America getting the album on November 13, 2015.
