Xtreem Music Signs No Amnesty For Debut Full Length “Psychopathy”

Spanish thrashers No Amnesty has just inked a deal with Xtreem Music for the release of the debut full length album “Psychopathy,” due to drop November 14th.

Formed back in 2012 in Sant Boi de Llobregat (Barcelona) with an average age of 15 and currently 20, except new vocalist Albert (also vocalist in Fuck Off) who is 30, No Amnesty began to play its first local shows until in April 2013 when the band recorded the debut EP “A New Order For Attack.” In 2015, the band recruited Pol as new drummer and in 2016, due to the departure of bassist & vocalist David, the band welcomed Albert (vocals) and Mija (bass) to complete the lineup as a five-piece.

In early 2017, No Amnesty entered Ax Studios to record “Psychopathy,” a 9-song opus of intense, varied, fresh and aggressive thrash metal that follows the steps of local masters like Crisix and Aggression.

More information on the album is expected soon.

Live Stream Of New Album Release Show Announced By Satyricon

Only one duo is able to evoke sinister settings like the world of bleak woods lurking behind Norwegian wafts of mist. And that duo is legendary Satyricon. Formed in Oslo in 1991, Satyricon made an immediate and enduring impact when emerging from the flourishing Norwegian black metal scene.

With the brand new opus titled “Deep calleth upon Deep,” the iconic masters Satyr and Frost properly dispense the darkest art of metal. Satyricon’s highly anticipated ninth studio album will be coming out this Friday, September 22nd, on Napalm Records.

To celebrate the upcoming record, the band will play an exclusive and very special album release show – on the rooftop of the KLP building in the heart of Oslo!

300 fans will exclusively experience Satyricon live at this very special event, but the release concert will also be streamed live to fans around the world, before the band leaves for an extensive world tour!

“I always thought the Beatles gig on top of the Apple building in London, 1969, was such an intriguing thing and it really feels like a privilege to be able to do something like this ourselves. In our hometown too! Since this is to celebrate the release of “Deep calleth upon Deep”, we don’t want to exclude those who can’t be there with us that night, so I’m glad it’s being streamed worldwide. We’ll play the whole record and we’ll do it in style!” Satyricon frontman & visionary Satyr informs us.

Save the date and make sure to check into Satyricon’s Facebook page this Friday, September 22nd at 9pm CEST, when the masters of dark art will take over the city of Oslo for one of the most special shows to date!

Debut EP “Posthumanism” Announced By Carbon Seed

Carbon Seed plays powerful and effective death metal. Heavy rhythms, incisive riffs and energetic vocals are sustained by floods of blast beats and double bass. Delivering fast and mid-tempo riffs along with powerful drums is at the heart of the sound. Dystopia, trans-humanism or artificial intelligence are themes touched upon in the lyrics. Influences derive firstly from the 90’s UK death metal bands, namely Napalm Death, Bolt Thrower and so on. Also of importance are bands from the US wave, like Suffocation, Dying Fetus.

The beginnings of Carbon Seed are now in the past and the best is to come, the band wish to play as much as possible, discover new friends around the world and make sense of everything the band strives for.

Sliptrick Records Signs Deal With Poison Pill

Hard rock/metal act Poison Pill signed on to Sliptrick Records for the release of the self-titled album coming November 7th.

Poison Pill was formed around the ambition to link hard hitting metal with unique verbal expressions of human frustration. This first release is a statement that has developed from three musicians of diverse backgrounds getting together sharing their visions of a modern, revitalized metal sound. The band felt there was new ideas to create in relation to the range of more traditional metal influences.

Poison Pill wants to reinvent and challenge what has become stereotypical words, expressions and messages flooding the genre. There are more subjects to touch upon than beer, babes, rock’n’roll, and on the other hand hell, war and monsters. Like the faceless external forces that surround us Poison Pill is a statement that’s not based on faces and names. It’s not a matter of individuals forming a line-up to promote their own careers, it’s about staying true to the artistic expression without getting stuck in a cult of personality. The music, the lyrics, the songs are what is important and it is also, in the end, what will attract the listener.

Stay tuned for more information on the album.

In Twilight’s Embrace Streams New Single “The Great Leveller”

Ahead of the release of fourth album “Vanitas,” In Twilight’s Embrace today unveils next single “The Great Leveller, which” is streaming below. Vocalist Cyprian Lakomy comments on the track:

“There is a thread which links this one with the first single, The Hell of Mediocrity. Although the title phrase is often used to portray death itself, it also reflects the sheep mentality versus free spirit, mass versus individual and, finally, the idolisation of the lowest common denominator as opposed to independent thought and action. From the very beginning, until the very end, this bitter undercurrent is present in every single line and note on Vanitas.”

1. The Hell of Mediocrity (song streaming here)
2. Fan the Flame
3. As Future Evaporates
4. Trembling
5. Flesh Falls, No Ghost Lifts
6. Futility
7. The Rift
8. The Great Leveller
