Monolord Releasing New Album “Vænir”

The new full length from Monolord is called “Vænir” (named after the biggest lake in Sweden) and is due out April 28th, 2015. Riding Easy Records comments:

“The record comes in with 6 songs over 48 mins of bone crushing mother fuckin DOOM! The song ‘Cursing The One’ was teased on Xmas Day, now that the record is off to press we figured y’all deserved to have 1 song from the follow up to Empress Rising.

“Vænir won’t be on the shelves until the end of April, but do not fret… you will be able to purchase a 12? single with Cursing The One on the A side and the Black Sabbath cover ‘Fairies Wear Boots’ that you can hear on the Cvlt Nation Paranoid comp that came out this summer.”

Saille Posts “Eldritch” Recording Studio Footage

Belgian epic black metal outfit Saille is only a few weeks away from releasing brand new record, “Eldritch,” which will hit the shelves on November 10th via Code666 Records. Be sure to check out our review of the symphonic black metal beast over here.

Over the last few weeks the band has been offering fans insight into the recording process via a series of studio videos. Check ’em all out below.

“‘Eldritch’ differs quite a bit from our two previous albums,” keyboardist Dries Gaerdelen begins. “We wanted the new songs to be more guitar oriented and more edgy, so we worked on the songs in a different way than we used to. Guitar players Reinier Schenk and Jonathan Vanderwal started writing the songs from a guitar perspective adding the keyboards and drums later on. On our two previous albums ‘Ritu’ and ‘Irreversible Decay’ the songs were created the other way around.”
