Demo Track “Gravity Chasm” Streaming From Conan

The world’s heaviest doom metal-band Conan is streaming the 2012 demo track “Gravity Chasm” in the player below. The song appears on the upcoming release “Man Is Myth – Early Demos” coming November 17th via Napalm Records.

Says guitarist & vocalist Jon Paul Davis: “‘Gravity Chasm’ made it onto the final album and it was always a favorite tribute to Cathedral’s own ‘Ride’ which has a similar riff. I wanted to write a song like this for a while and it kind of came together one day when we were trying to play Iron Maiden in the studio.”

It roars and cranks all over, dull distortion drags nerves into the coldest regions of the world. It’s no accident that the band calls this “Caveman Battle Doom.” “Man Is Myth – Early Demos” is the primordial soup for everything that Conan stands for!

The track list for “Man Is Myth – Early Demos” is:

1. Battle In The Swamp ( Rehearsal room demo 2009 )
2. Satsumo ( Rehearsal room demo 2009 )
3. Krull ( Rehearsal room demo 2009 )
4. Satsumo ( Rehearsal room demo 2006 )
5. Gravity Chasm ( Studio demo 2012 )
6. Foehammer ( Studio demo 2012 )
7. Domed Iron Boss ( Studio demo 2012 )

Check out “Gravity Chasm” here:

Century Media Records Inks Deal With Death Alley, New Song Released

Dutch destroyers Death Alley signed on with Century Media Records for the upcoming sophomore album. The band is streaming the new song “The Sewage,” which is available in the player at the bottom.

The band already raised attention with the debut album “Black Magick Boogieland” in 2015. The band, revolving around former The Devil’s Blood guitarist Oeds Beydals, singer Douwe Truijens, Swedish drummer Uno Bruniusson (ex-In Solitude) and latest addition Sander Bus on bass, mainline an unorthodox cross contamination of psychedelic hard rock and punk, played with excellent precision and power. The spirit of Bad Brains and King Crimson, Hawkwind and Poison Idea, and hints of The Stooges and Black Sabbath-worship form the fundament for Death Alley’s solid rock and roll presented with metal finesse and a pitch black psychedelic soul cherry on top.

The ink on the new deal with Century Media Records isn’t dry yet and the band just left the Moon Studios where they recorded the sophomore album with producer Pieter Kloos (Motorpsycho, The Devil’s Blood, Dool, etc.). Right now, the band is hitting the road again with friends in Kadavar with whom very special tour split 7” was created.

The band comments: “We’ve been sailing the sewage for quite a while now, and time has come to harvest the gold and offer it to you on a silver platter. We can spend much time and effort describing the feeling of the new music, the upcoming record, and the European tour with Kadavar, but that will always be just a faint shadow of showing it: so just come to the shows and blast the new song with volume at 11 – that’ll say more than the dozens of synonyms for ‘stoked’. Let us feast on it.”

Check out “The Sewage” here:

Don’t miss seeing Death Alley on tour in Europe and watch out for the new album to be released in early 2018 through Century Media Records.

First Details Of New Metal Opera “Beloved Antichrist” Announced By Therion, Tour Dates Revealed

When 15 year old prodigy Christofer Johnsson founded Therion as a death metal band in 1987, little did he know that exactly 30 years later he would put the final touches to a project that will go down in history as symphonic metal’s most ambitious release. While “metal operas” are no longer an unusual creation, this term will forever receive a new meaning on January 26, 2018, when the curtain opens for Johnsson’s lifelong creation: “Beloved Antichrist.” The new spectacular brainchild consists of 3 full-length CDs. It’s more than just a concept album, but a complete rock opera with multiple chapters unveiling a sweeping story, partly based on and inspired by Vladímir Soloviov “A Short Tale Of The Antichrist.”

With an incredible total of 29 different roles and characters, who all required a unique voice, Therion hired not only a big choir, but also 29 vocalists to bring the epic story to life. With long-time collaborators like Thomas Vikström, Lori Lewis and Chiara Malvestiti, fans will hear the classical Therion vibe but also be able to drown in a magical maelstrom of many new as well as familiar voices. Divided into several chapters, the opera reaches a full length of 3 and a half hours and Therion is currently working on the possibility of bringing the entire production to the stage.

While this monumental undertaking still simmers away in the Swedish production halls, the band has announced a pan-European tour where they will perform some of their new masterpieces live in a classical concert setting. Support comes from Russia’s Imperial Age, Germany’s Null Positiv and New York symphonic metal act Midnight Eternal. Don’t miss this new milestone in the history of symphonic metal and witness this dramatic staging of the apocalypse and all those brave, sinister and fascinating characters heading towards the end of it all.
