legendary Polar Studios. 2012 also saw their critically acclaimed full length debut “Ghost Road Blues” that was procuded by Lawrence Mackrory (F.K.Ü, Darkane).

During the past ten years, Nale has toured with Crucifed Barbara and The Resistance as well as played both clubs and big festivals such as Getaway Rock, Sabaton Open Air and Wacken Open Air.

New Album “Random Acts Of Carnage” On The Way From Meat Train

On the 29th of September a new level of horror, fear and ferocity will be pulling into a station near you. The whispered warnings have spread through the metal underground like wildfire and now the dreaded event is upon us…Meat Train have returned. Led by a deranged anti-priest, these sinister, soulless beasts of brutality are on a crusade of carnage. They not only want to watch the world burn, they want to kill as many people as possible as the flames engulf us all.

Contagion Records have taken it upon themselves to release Meat Train’s unholy book, the bestial bible, the manual to the end of all things…”Random Acts Of Carnage.” The eleven hymns of horror that nestle like vipers beneath the bloody insanity of the cover art explore the darkest depths of human behavior. From unflinching examinations of the chapters of history that shame our entire species to flesh eating fantasies and tales of the undead, Random Acts Of Carnage leaves no ghastly stone unturned, no shadowed corner unexplored.

The tales of terror are accompanied by musical muscle of the most intimidating power. The band that Terrorizer magazine once said would make you ‘”ick to your stomach” have never been more fiercely focussed. This is real death metal – filthy, grinding, decimating death metal that will drown you in blood and have you choking and gasping for more. Featuring a gruesome, guttural, guest backing vocal performance from Svenson Groß of Fleshcrawl, a guitar sound heavy enough to reduce bodies to pulp, a vocal presence to freeze the blood and a merciless bottom end that propels the listener into the meat grinder of the relentless drum assault – this album is unstoppable.

The track listing is:

1. Random Acts Of Carnage
2. Handle With Caer
3. Eat Or Be Eaten
4. Redneck Zombies
5. Orchards of Death
6. Fear The Machine
7. Stop Killing All The Whores
8. Wolf
9. Saviour
10. Insubordinate
11. Block 11

Vallenfyre Premieres New Music Video “The Merciless Tide” From Brand New Album “Fear Those Who Fear Him”

Crusty death/doom metal outfit Vallenfyre premieres a new music video for “The Merciless Tide”, taken from the band’s brand new album “Fear Those Who Fear Him”, out in stores now via Century Media. The video was directed by Ash Pears (Paradise Lost, Bloodbath).

Check out now “The Merciless Tide” below.

Comments vocalist/guitarist Gregor Mackintosh (also Paradise Lost):

“‘The Merciless Tide‘ is about the relentless march of time and also wishing you could be in someone else’s shoes to save them suffering. In the video we see a man going through immense suffering over a long period of time, never being able to grasp the things he craves, whilst faceless tormentors observe in indifference. This is incredibly grim, so enjoy.”

New EP “Thronosis” Detailed By Excommunion

As the world crumbles beneath our feet, a slumbering beast awakens to feast on the weak. That beast is Excommunion. The band will break a years-long silence with the upcoming release of “Thronosis” via Dark Descent Records on May 12th.

Fifteen years after the sonic blitzkrieg that was the debut album “Superion,” Colorado born Excommunion triumphantly returns with the new EP “Thronosis.” Christbutcher and Kyle Spanswick once again form the backbone for this relentless return.

The band comments: “In death we are born again, to rise once more with new form, beneath the Shadow of the Logos. Old doctrines are cast into the abyss and old flesh flensed and given to the flames of pyres. Let only the old name remain as our epithet. Let all else burn and fall from this new and glorious form within the paradoxical light of a greater heresy. In death, Excommunion arises once more…”

The release was recorded, mixed and mastered at Flatline Audio by Dave Otero and Excommunion. The cover art (shown below) was created by Lauri Laaksonen (Desolate Shrine).

The track listing is as follows:

1. Twilight of Eschaton
2. Nemesis
3. World Crucifier
4. Blessed is the Epoch of Darkness and Strife

Ravencult premieres second single, “Tormentor of Flesh”, via NoCleanSinging.com

– October 26th, 2016 –

On November 11th, Ravencult will release their third full-length (and Metal Blade Records debut!), Force of Profanation. For a preview of Force of Profanation, head over to NoCleanSinging.com, where the latest single, “Tormentor Of Flesh”, is streaming: nocleansinging.com

Ravencult comments: “‘Tormentor Of Flesh’ is the opening track of the new album, serving the cause of direct attack in our trademark paces & riffing. Lyrically it’s about profane acts of torment against divine flesh, while musically it reflects our adoration for the 80s gods like Possessed/Venom/Slayer. Rejoice in Blasphemy.”

Originating from Athens, Greece, Ravencult was spawned to revive the relentless side of black/thrash metal, bringing forth an unpolished, organic sound to manifest their morbid darkness. With Force of Profanation, they dive even deeper into the abyss of metal obscurity, delivering a merciless barrage of metallic death that continues the tradition of their trademark conceptual axis: revenge, horror and mocking of all that is holy.

Ravencult reveals details for new album, ‘Force of Profanation’

– September 22nd, 2016 –

Launches first single, “Beneath The Relics Of Old”, online

On November 11th, Ravencult will release their third full-length (and Metal Blade Records debut!), Force Of Profanation. To hear the first single, “Beneath The Relics Of Old”, and pre-order the record in various formats, please visit: metalblade.com/ravencult

Ravencult comments: “In this first sample of our new album, one can witness a big part of what Ravencult is all about in the ‘Force Of Profanation‘ era. Almost all important elements of the band’s sound here shine in their entirety, combining our adoration for the old thrash/d-beat pace with sinister black metal in a variety of tempos. Lyric-wise, ‘Beneath The Relics Of Old’ is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s ‘At The Mountains Of Madness’, completing our vision of descending into bottomless depths of horror. For us, making steps forward means definitely not incorporating modern or more complex/technical parts; it’s all about honoring our roots and sound by maximizing aggression and morbidity each time, maintaining the riff-after-riff mentality while everything is executed with absolute determination.”
