Darkest Hour Premiere Music Video For “Enter Oblivion”

Darkest Hour premiere a music video for their track “Enter Oblivion” which was directed by the band’s own vocalist John Henry. He commented of the clip:

“I wanted to find a location that I felt would represent the nomadic theme of the song. When I came across Rainbow Basin outside of Barstow I immediately knew it was the right spot. There’s a real beauty about the bleakness and harshness of the desert which stands out as the true star of the video.”

Adds guitarist Mike Schleibaum :

“We chose the song ‘Enter Oblivion‘ because it shows a different side of the album then we first presented. This song sits in the middle of the album and although it doesn’t crush with the same speed as the others it presents a depth that is all its own.

The style of this song really allows for the band to breath sonically and the production of Kurt Ballou to really stand out on this track, especially in those drums! This is song for those who live outside of the borders of man and the laws of nature. For those who have found themselves in the act of constantly searching.”

Darkest Hour will be headlining this tour with Whores. and Extinction A.D. later in the month:

02/16 Richmond, VA – The Canal Club
02/17 Savanah, GA – AURA FEST
02/18 Nashville, TN – The Basement East
02/20 Cincinnati, OH – Bogarts
02/21 Indianapolis, IN – Emerson Theater
02/22 Chicago, IL – Reggies
02/23 Lansing, MI – The Loft
02/24 Rochester, NY – Photo City
02/25 Pittsburgh, PA – Cattivo

Primal Fear Working On New Studio Album “Apocalypse”

Primal Fear are back in the studio working on their upcoming new album, “Apocalypse”. 12 brand new crushing heavy metal tracks have been selected, out of 30 newly written tracks, which will be produced by PF’s own Mat Sinner and engineered & mixed by Jacob Hansen at Hansen Studios in Denmark. The album is tentatively scheduled for release in mid-2018.

New song titles include “Apocalypse”, “New Rise”, “The Hounds Of Justice”, “King Of Madness”, “The Beast”, “Blood, Sweat & Fear” and the 10-minute extravaganza “Eye Of The Storm”. Stylistically, the new tunes follow the same path that started on the most successful Primal Fear album so far, “Rulebreaker”.

Ralf Scheepers: “I don’t know where it comes from and how we do it, but we seem to have a real flow in writing some cool heavy metal tunes since quite a while. And again, nothing will be released which we are not 100% satisfied with. You can trust the seal of the brand Primal Fear.”

Mat Sinner adds: “I’m really surprised about the creativity in the band. Every band member contributes on the song writing and I’m super happy about the chosen songs and the production so far. You can expect a full energy driven metal album with a maximum attitude and raw power!”

Primal Fear will support the new album release with an extensive summer festival tour in 2018, followed by a world tour.

Primal Fear:
Ralf Scheepers – Lead Vocals
Tom Naumann – Guitars
Alexander Beyrodt – Guitars
Magnus Karlsson – Guitars

New Song “Mutilation Mansion” Available From Acid Witch

Today, the ever-singular Acid Witch revealed the new song “Mutilation Mansion.” The song hails from the band’s third album “Evil Sound Screamers,” which will see digital release on Halloween via Hells Headbangers; the CD and vinyl LP formats shall be released by Hells Headbangers in the new year. Check out “Mutilation Mansion” in the player at the bottom.

Although their catalog is relatively sparse, Acid Witch should need no introduction. It’s been seven long years since the release of their classic second album “Stoned.” That album saw Acid Witch take the bewitching formula of the “Witchtanic Hallucinations” debut to greater, more entrancing lengths, swirling about a heady (and headfucking) brew of gutted doom-death riffage and spooky synth embellishments.

Now on “Evil Sound Screamers,” those synths don’t so much take a lead role as unite every thread across the record, flitting in and out of perception like a fever dream (or an LSD nightmare) and otherwise torquing all the gutsfucking riffs that now stomp ‘n’ sway with a rousingly anthemic quality. They are authentically analog synthesizers, too, just like the beloved sound design of those classic horror movies. Additionally, the acute placement of samples further threads everything together in a manner most filmic. And that’s to say nothing of the production here, which finds a hazy, crazy balance between murky and 3D.

Before you know it, the 38 minutes of “Evil Sound Screamers” is up and you’re immediately pressing “play” again and again. Now more than ever, there’s really no other band out there quite like Acid Witch: Evil Sound Screamers is the band’s magnum opus, and long may its reign continue. This is the season of the Witch!

The track listing is:

1. Scare Tape
2. Mr. Beistle
3. I Hate Halloween
4. Cheap Gore
5. Nain Rouge (The Red Dwarf)
6. Enter At Your Own Risk
7. Mutilation Mansion
8. Hardrock Halloween
9. Nightmares In A Damaged Brain
10. An Evil Sound Screaming

Video CLip For New Song “Halls Of Human Delights” Issued By Genus Ordinis Dei

Italian symphonic death metal act Genus Ordinis Dei posted a video clip for the new single “Halls of Human Delights.” The song is lifted from the upcoming second full-length album “Great Olden Dynasty” coming November 24th via Eclipse Records.

“The song is about God’s creation of sin, and the fact that sins have been made to seem delicious when committed” states vocalist Nick K. “As more people commit sins, more souls are sent to the prison that God created for them until they are redeemed. We decided to represent the theme of the song in a luxurious but decadent hall as a metaphor to the joy of committing sin, but also to imply the feeling of emptiness when one’s sins are redeemed.” Guitarist Tommy Mastermind continues, “We decided to revisit this abandoned location we used for a previous photo shoot because it was perfect. We didn’t expect any problems, however when we arrived, there were dozens of people shooting an actual movie! The movie production troupe was using our hall as their control room, and just outside they were shooting some horror scenes. We were desperate because that was the only day for us to shoot before departing on tour with Lacuna Coil. Luckily some people on the production crew had heard of the band before, and were sympathetic to our dilemma. They moved their gear to the far side of the room and we literally shot the video while they were shooting their movie! It was a difficult but memorable experience!”

The album features ten pummeling tracks of symphonic death-metal mastery, including Cristina Scabbia (Lacuna Coil) on guest vocals for the song “Salem.”

The album was produced, mixed, and mastered by Simone Mularoni (Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody, DGM) at Domination Studio. It sports the following track listing:

1. The Unleashed
2. You Die In Roma
3. Cold Water
4. The Flemish Obituary
5. Sanctuary Burns
6. Morten
7. ID 13401
8. Halls of Human Delights
9. Salem (Feat. Cristina Scabbia)
10. Greyhouse
