Nekrokraft Debut New Lyric Video For “Wrath of The Heavens” From Upcoming New Album “Witches Funeral”

On the 19th of January 2018 the witches will rise again when Nekrokraft compiles their earlier demos on their new album Witches Funeral”. The album contains two previously unreleased tracks “They Swim, They Must Hang” and “Wrath of the Heavens” that was written in the same era as the demos. The band have just released a lyric video for new track “Wrath of The Heavens” which can be viewed below:

Combining a raw, brutal and untamed sound with blackend melodies shows the first primal steps of these fallen creatures. With a total of ten tracks of thrashing black metal that contains eight original songs and covers of Slayer “Angel of Death” and Bathory “Satan my Master”. Let the hammer fall, this is the hour of the witch.

Angst: “We often refer to these demos as the forgotten times of Nekrokraft, since we have a hard time remembering the recording session at all. We were wasted and gave in to our fleshly desires…”

Nekrokraft is spending the last half of 2017 in the studio recording their new album Servants that will be out late spring of 2018. The band have previously released the mini-album Will o’ Wisp on The Sign Records 2016. Since the release of Will o Wisp, the band’s singer Angst has also joined Swedish blackened thrash legends Witchery. The songs on Witches Funeral are taken from three different recording sessions and are compiled from two demos and previously unreleased material.

Former Marilyn Manson/Jack Off Jill Guitarist Daisy Berkowitz Passes Away

Scott Mitchell Putesky, more famously known as Daisy Berkowitz, the co-founding guitarist of the Marilyn Manson (originally Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids,) and later of Jack Off Jill, has passed away according to a number of his friends and bandmates. A posting on the Jack Off Jill Facebook page stated; “Saying good bye to Scott, friend, band mate, artist , hero.. RIP Scott – “always touched by your presence dear.” Daisy Berkowitz.” An official cause of death has yet to be revealed but in 2013, Putesky was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.

Putesky formed Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids in 1989 with the eponymous singer (AKA Brian Warner,) after meeting at an after party at the Reunion Room in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He remained with the group recording the album, “Portrait of an American Family” and the EP “Smells Like Children,” before leaving halfway through the recording of “Antichrist Superstar” due to creative differences, though he does appear on the record. He would then join Jack Off Jill in 1998 and went on to record the album, “Covetous Creature” with the group and made a guest appearance with Godhead, before recording some albums with Three Ton Gate.

New Song “Soul Taker” Streaming From High Reeper

Delaware stoner act High Reeper has teamed up with Indy Metal Vault to stream the new song “Soul Taker,” which appears on the band’s upcoming self-titled album. Check out the song at this location, or just in the player down below.

“High Reeper” will be released on November 3rd. Pre-order the album over here.

Formed in 2016, High Reeper is made up of Zach Thomas, Napz Mosley, Andrew Price, Pat Daly and Shane Trimble. Originally started as just a studio band, it rapidly became apparent that these songs were meant to be heard live and loud. The band made their debut in the Philly/DE stoner rock scene in early 2017 with success which was followed up by the recording of the self-titled debut in May. With a sound deeply rooted in modern stoner rock while still giving a nod to the earliest Sabbath records, High Reeper’s first offering is driven by pounding rhythms, thick guitars and the soaring, screeching vocals.

New Album “No Cure For Death” Announced By Sect

Following the signing of North American hardcore group Sect to Southern Lord earlier this year, the band has since completed recording the second full-length, and label debut, “No Cure For Death” and with plans to release the album on November 24th.

“No Cure For Death” was recorded with Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios and mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music. Check out brand new footage of the recording sessions in the player at the bottom.

Comprised of an international cast of scene veterans, who cut their teeth in that formative moment of political, cynical, antagonistic extremes, Sect unites vocalist Chris Colohan (Cursed, Burning Love, Left For Dead), guitarists James Chang (Catharsis, Undying) and Scott Crouse (Earth Crisis, The Path Of Resistance), bassist Steve Hart (Day Of Suffering), and drummer Andy Hurley (Racetraitor, Fall Out Boy, The Damned Things). The result of these musicians’ alignment is a caustic, riotous, belligerent style of vile hardcore fed by a boundless well of socio-political vitriol.

Sect gets right down to the blast beats and breakdowns that fight it out in chaotic jams. The band cuts the shit and go for the throat with no time to waste, “because the Orwellian police states and irreparable social and ecological disasters we once saw off on the horizon are now on our front doorsteps, in full swing. And in just such a volatile, precarious moment as this for civilization, there is more reason than ever to keep lashing out at a world more suicidally-bent on its own destruction and the exploitation of people, species and the ecosystem itself, than perhaps ever before in history.”

For Sect, this is the purpose of hardcore as they know it, conveying an urgency that transcends age, credentials or scene politics, to convert desperation into real talk and action. Stand by for audio samples, videos, pre-order links and more in the days ahead.

The track listing for “No Cure For Death” is:

1. Open Grave
2. Day For Night
3. Crocodile Prayers
4. Reality’s Wake
5. Stripes
6. Liberal Arts
7. Born Razed
8. Transaction
9. Least Resistance
10. Avoidance Ritual

Check out the recording footage here:

Sect will take part in Not Dead Yet Fest this weekend in Toronto, playing Saturday, October 14th alongside Incendiary, Glory, Hotheads, Spiritual Cramp, Illusion, and Real World. The next day they headline a show in Buffalo with Acolyte, Old Ghosts, and Juggernaut. Additional tour dates are to be expected, but confirmed dates are as follows:

10/14/2017 Coalition – Toronto, ON @ Not Dead Yet Fest
10/15/2017 Mohawk Place – Buffalo, NY w/ Acolyte, Old Ghosts, Juggernaut
