Video Clip For New Song “Into The Heart Of The Sun” Issued By Tragul

International melodic metal band Tragul – featuring contributions from the Holzwarth brothers Oliver and Alex (ex-Rhapsody of Fire) – issued a video for the new single “Into The Heart Of The Sun.”

The new track offers a more progressive side of the band mixed with the natural and operatic voice of Zuberoa Aznárez (Diabulus in Musica) with a intense rock solo of Steve Conley (Flotsam and Jetsam) in the middle of the song.

Tragul was created in late 2016 by Adrian Benegas, keyboardist and composer of the band Pergana. In addition to the Holzwarths, the project features contributions from renowned metal stars such as Zuberoa Aznarez (Diabulus In Musica) (Vocals) and Steve Conley (F5/Flotsam & Jetsam) (Guitars).

Tragul releases will come in a “song by song” format, every 1-2 months, as a music or lyric video. After each video release, the fans can download the songs from each major digital stores.

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.

Debut EP “Pillars” Announced By Apologoethia

Today, Invictus Productions set November 24th as the international release date for Apologoethia’s highly anticipated debut mini-album, “Pillars.”

Apologoethia was spawned way back in 2012 as a side-project of J.B. in order to develop some ideas that didn’t fit both musical and stylistically with his main band, Spain’s Graveyard. After an intense period of composition, the style that now exists as Apologoethia was born. Sometime in 2014, J.B. asked J.F. to lay down some drum patterns that would fit with the riffs, the tempos, and complement the overall feel, atmosphere, and vibe that the songs needed and demanded. With all the material already prepared, shaped, and sharpened, it was time to develop the conceptual side of the band, creating some lyrics that would fit with Apologoethia’s atmosphere and dark ‘n’ macabre approach. After a meticulous search, L.O. was brought into the band, knowing that his writing and conceptual skills would work perfectly with the band’s aesthetics and purposes.

Alas, what results is a hysteric-yet-nuanced plunge into the realms of madness. Exploring the dark side of human knowledge, an introspection through different cultural, ascetic, and religious approaches mankind explored throughout centuries past, Apologoethia here construct ceaselessly roiling monoliths of diabolical metal mania. Comprised of four equally treacherous labyrinths/songs, Pillars unfurls its mysteries with a perversely restless ease, pitching headlong from lumbering doom chunder into frothing, ferocious South American-styled chaos and often back again (or in reverse, or both), all of it betraying a boundless vision heeding the darkest energies coursing through heavy metal. Within, stretches of clean-toned tension crop up, deliriously setting the stage for further onslaught to commence.

Rounded out by rich ‘n’ robust production, Pillars marks a none-more-auspicious debut for a name that shall soon be spoken of far and wide: behold the birth of Apologoethia. The first Pillar to be revealed is “De Aeterno Praesentia,” which can be heard in the player below.

The cover and track listing are as follows:

1. Pillar I (De Fundamenta Spiritus)
2. Pillar II (De Humanae Natura)
3. Pillar III (De Absentiae Vitae)
4. Pillar IV (De Aeterno Praesentia)

Signs Of The Swarm Releasing New Album “The Disfigurement Of Existence”

Pittsburgh death metal squad and recent Unique Leader signees Signs Of The Swarm will release latest full-length, “The Disfigurement Of Existence,” on November 3rd.

The ten-track offering was mixed and mastered by Phil Pluskota (Abiotic, King Conquer) of Sonic Assult Studios in Cape Corral, Florida, features a guest appearance by Dickie Allen (Abiotic, Bludgeoned Beyond Reason), and comes swathed in the cover art of Par Olaffson.

Offers Signs Of The Swarm vocalist CJ McCreery, “Our first album ‘Senseless Order’ was mainly to get the point across that we know how to bring the heavy. A lot of the songs were fairly slow and nothing really stood out as far as appealing to anyone more than the standard ‘deathcore’ fan base.

“For ‘The Disfigurement of Existence,’ we all dove into our own craft and stepped our game up one-hundred-percent individually to really bring this album together and be more than just a standard ‘deathcore’ band. We got our new guitarist (Jacob Toy) and drummer (Jimmy Pino) right when we started the writing process for TDOI and immediately realized that all of our minds working together could make an absolutely insane album, and I feel like we accomplished that goal. The guitar riffs are way more intricate, Jimmy’s drumming is fucking batshit crazy, and I made sure to really step it up vocally and lyrically.

“An unbelievable amount of work, sweat, and tears — and probably blood at some point too — went into this album and we are so excited to finally release it to everyone and show what we are now capable of. We cannot wait to see what the near future holds and are extremely excited to tour new places and meet new fans. The amount of support we got in the last year is so incredibly heartwarming and all of us are blessed beyond words to have such awesome fans and be where we are right now in our careers. A huge thanks to Unique Leader Records for believing in us and having us join the team to make this album possible. We’re just getting started.”

Imperialist Announces Debut Album “Cipher”

Black metal band Imperialist will unleash debut album “Cipher” on November 28th, 2017. Check out the cover art and track listing below.

Imperialist was established in Los Angeles in early 2013 by Sergio Soto. Once the compositions had been crafted, Sergio called upon Rod Quinones, a long-time friend who had been playing the drums for over a decade due to his extensive training in drumline and his high school marching band.

Soto and Quinones quickly gathered an ease in working through the compositions and decided to request for Bryant, the other half of the Quinones, to join them as the second pair of virtuosic strings. Once the songs had been further conquered, they gained Adrian Castaneda on bass, as he had learned bass early on in his studies, and was ready to transition to a more serious target.

At the beginning of 2017, Imperialist ventured to Trench Studios to record and mix this debut full-length album with John Trench in Pomona, CA. “Cipher” was mastered by Ken Sorceron (Abigail Williams, The Faceless, Aborted).

New Album “Vicious Breed” Announced By Lady Beast

Pittsburgh, PA’s NWOBHM-inspired upstarts Lady Beast will be entering +/- Studios in early September to record the third full-length album, “Vicious Breed,” the band’s first release for Italy’s Cruz Del Sur Music. Jason Jouver will be handling production duties. Karl Dahmer is credited with the album’s cover art (shown below).

Comments guitarist Twiz: “Musically, I’d say it’s a continuation of the ‘Metal Immortal’ EP. Some of the songs were written at the same time as the songs on the EP. I think it’s our most dynamic and diverse album to date. We have fast songs (‘Vicious Breed’), heavy songs (‘Lone Hunter’), melodic songs, a ballad (‘Always With Me’), rockers (‘Get Out Of My Way’), and an instrumental. I’m probably most proud of the songs on this than I am of other stuff I’ve written.”

“I am very proud of the melodies and lyrical content on this album,” adds vocalist Deborah Levine. “I have a bit of a formula when I start writing lyrics. The music and feel of the song obviously help the direction I turn, but also I like to have a skeleton of the same idea for each album. The song of an epic story, the hopeful song, the metal ripper, etc. Each is important as it builds the album as a whole. On ‘Vicious Breed’, we have our first ballad, on which it will be fun to slow it down and have people hear a different side of us.”

Vicious Breed is set for October 2017 release, after which the band hopes to embark on the most expansive run of shows to date.

“We are excited to release our third full-length, but first release with Cruz Del Sur,” concludes the band. “This is by far our greatest album yet and we are excited to get out there and play it for the world. We have goals of more international touring in the next year. Europe is our biggest goal right now and we are networking as we speak trying to plan a Lady Beast European tour, as well as touring in the States and writing new music!”

The track listing for “Vicious Breed” is:

1. Seal the Hex
2. Lone Hunter
3. The Way
4. Always With Me
5. Get Out
6. Every Giant Shall Fall
7. Sky Graves
8. Vicious Breed
