Behemoth launches video for new single, “Wolves ov Siberia”

– September 5th, 2018 –

“It doesn’t get more blasphemous than this,” declares Behemoth mastermind Nergal, about the band’s upcoming album, I Loved You At Your Darkest – due out October 5th via Metal Blade Records (North America) / Nuclear Blast (Europe). While it certainly seems an unlikely title for a black metal band, its origin might surprise fans even more than the words themselves. “It’s a verse from the Bible,” Nergal reveals. “It’s actually a quote from Jesus Christ himself. For Behemoth to use it as the basis of our record, it’s sacrilege to the extreme.”

A crushing salvo of black metal majesty replete with hellish riffs, thundering drum cannonades and soaring liturgical choirs reminiscent of classic horror cinema, I Loved You At Your Darkest is the group’s most dynamic record yet: extreme and radical on one hand, but also more rock-oriented than any other Behemoth release. Produced by the band themselves, with drum co-production by Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames), mixing by Matt Hyde (Slayer, Children Of Bodom) mastering by Tom Baker (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson), and a 17-piece Polish orchestra arranged by Jan Stoklosa, I Loved You At Your Darkest can be pre-ordered now at: metalblade.com/behemoth – where the video for the new single, “Wolves Ov Siberia” (directed by Kyle Kadow and Steven Cleavland), can also be viewed. The following formats are available in the USA, along with an exclusive t-shirt:


–jewelcase CD
–digibook CD (hardcover digibook, 40 page booklet)
–baltic amber vinyl (limited to 600 copies)
–opaque white w/ gold splatter vinyl (Metal Blade Records exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–black / gold split vinyl (Metal Blade Records exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–clear w/ smoky black swirl (Nuclear Blast US exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–clear w/ grey inside (Kings Road exclusive – limited to 500 copies)
–”God = Dog” 7″ picture disc (Metal Blade Records exclusive – limited to 666 copies)

Nergal comments: “‘Wolves Ov Siberia’ was the first song unveiled from ILYAYD, we began playing it on tour in May of this year – the raw energy and dynamism of the song lent itself perfectly to a live context! The studio version doesn’t lose those fundamentals and now with our added intricacies, you will be able to hear the call to Ancient times…the devil is in the detail, after all.
The video was purposefully very different from the well-recognised, Behemoth aesthetic – I wanted it to be chaotic, frenzied yet beautiful…I think this is mission accomplished and we’re really happy with the final product from Kyle Kadow and Steven Cleavland! Enjoy it!”

To watch the video for the first single, “God = Dog” (directed by Grupa 13 / http://www.grupa13.com), head over to: youtube.com/watch?v=iI2y_mi7jDI

Revocation launches title track for new album, ‘The Outer Ones’, online

On September 28th, Revocation will release their new album, The Outer Ones, via Metal Blade Records. For a preview of The Outer Ones, the title track can now be heard at: youtube.com/watch?v=tbEBKH_XDrU

To watch a video for the first single, “Of Unworldly Origin” (directed by David Brodsky / www.davidsbrodsky.com), please visit: metalblade.com/revocation – where the record can also be pre-ordered in the following formats (with new vinyl variations, due to some editions now being sold-out!):


–jewelcase-CD
–transparent blue w/ black smoke vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 750 copies)
–opaque grey inside transparent vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 250 copies)
–opaque cyan / aqua vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 250 copies)

–clear water blue marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–transparent dark green/black marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Produced by Zeuss (Rob Zombie, Queensryche, Whitechapel, etc.), The Outer Ones sees Revocation pushing both the death metal and progressive elements of their signature sound harder than ever. “I knew that I wanted to go in a darker direction, and this is our most death metal album to date,” states vocalist/guitarist Dave Davidson. “Sometimes when death metal bands go down the prog route they lose some of that edge, but we wanted to keep the aggression at the forefront of what we do while still pushing our boundaries.” Moving away from the societal and historical themes that informed 2016′s Great is Our Sin, this time Davidson has immersed himself in the fantastic, evoking one of the great writers of the sci-fi/horror genre. “The title is my ode to H.P. Lovecraft and the entities of pure cosmic horror that rule that universe he created. Since the new music we were writing was so evil and spacey in sections it seemed to be the right title to fit the overall vibe. But while the lyrical content is largely influenced by such writings, in every allegory there is of course some reflection of the real world, so I enjoy writing in a way that could have one overlaying meaning and then another deeper, symbolic meaning as well.”

The Outer Ones track-listing
1. Of Unworldly Origin
2. That Which Consumes All Things
3. Blood Atonement
4. Fathomless Catacombs
5. The Outer Ones
6. Vanitas
7. Ex Nihilo

Epic melodic death metallers Nothgard announce new album, ‘Malady X’

– August 9th, 2018 –

Launch title track as first single

Epic melodic death metallers Nothgard from Germany have finished the recordings for their new album Malady X and are proud to present the first song to the masses! Head over to metalblade.com/nothgard to check out the stunning video for the title track “Malady X” – where the record is also available for pre-order in the following formats:


–ltd. 1st ed. Digipak-CD
–box set (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–180g black vinyl
–dead gold marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–light grey marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–red/black marbled vinyl (EMP exclusive – limited to 120 copies)
–clear/black marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 100 copies)

Bandleader Dom R. Crey states: “With ‘Malady X‘, we have created an album that is both dark and serious, but on the other hand rife with catchy melodies – while not compromising our individual sound at all, on the contrary: I am sure we have defined the Nothgard-style more clearly than ever on this album. This is why we are really happy to present our first new material to you in the shape of a music video!”

The clip for “Malady X” was recorded in one take, meaning without interruptions and based on a specific choreography to make an authentic impression. The result is nothing less than breathtaking!

Dom R. Crey adds: “Of course, ‘Malady X‘ takes on an important role because it’s the title track. It represents everything that we, deep inside, find disturbing about society and current ways of thinking. We consciously address it in the lyrics – no-go’s and issues in daily life which should actually be perceived as such, but instead, we have lost awareness of them. Rather than standing in for our convictions, we choose to live according to false values.”

Nothgard has recorded Malady X at Def-Creation and & Southern Deathcult studios and called the renowned Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, Arch Enemy, Kreator, Opeth, etc.) for mastering duties. The result is an album full of epic melodic death metal anthems!

Metal Underground caught up with guitarist Andreas Kisser months ago, during which “Machine Messiah” was discussed, as well as the retrospective documentary, “Sepultura Endurance” and the focus on concept albums. You can view the video beneath the tour recap.

KATAKLYSM And HYPOCRISY Announce Death… Is Just The Beginning European Co-Headline Tour
Montréal based melodic death metallers Kataklysm have announced that they will be teaming up with Swedish death metal legends Hypocrisy for a European co-headline tour.

The tour’s special name traces back to Nuclear Blast’s popular sampler series and promises nothing but evenings of moshpits and endless devastation. Don’t miss out on this outstanding tour and secure your tickets now.

Kataklysm’s Maurizio Iacono states: “It’s been in talks for over two years and finally both Kataklysm and our brothers in Hypocrisy can make the schedule work to join forces once more. It’s been almost 15 years since we toured together and the last time we did the tours became instant classics. It‘s that time again folks… Kataklysm & Hypocrisy team up once more for a world tour beginning with Europe this fall. To make things even greater our record label Nuclear Blast has come on board and baptized the tour Death… Is Just The Beginning, a homage to the old classic compilations that made so many fans discover both bands back in the day. This will mark the return of this classic compilation with this tour and maybe give other artists the chance to get discovered like we did. DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR, YOU ONLY GET ONE CHANCE!”

Hypocrisy’s Peter Tägtgren adds: “I hope that you are just as excited as we are, because we are very happy to announce that we are finally warming up the Hypocrisy engine again and that we will be back on the road in fall! We will be touring Europe together with our friends in Kataklysm! The tour will be an overview of the chaos and confusion created by Hypocrisy over the years. See you out there!”
