Hamferð releases third single, “Stygd”

– January 10th, 2018 –

Doomsters Hamferð from the Faroe Islands will release their new full-length, Támsins likam , this Friday (January 12th) via Metal Blade Records! In anticipation of this release, the band has now launched the third single from the album – “Stygd” – at: metalblade.com/hamferd

At the same location, you can watch the lyric video for the first single, “Hon syndrast”, as well as the production video for the 2nd single, “Frosthvarv” – plus, pre-order the album in the following formats:


–jewelcase CD
–180g black vinyl
–dark grey marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 300 copies)
–pastel violet marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–milky clear vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–transparent blue vinyl (TUTL exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
–light grey black marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 200 copies)

Roughly translated as “Body of the mist”, Támsins likam is an attempt to create the most intriguing, honest and unique Hamferð experience yet. It is nothing less than a pinnacle; a culmination of many years of refining both sound and songwriting, spearheaded by a strong desire to keep progressing and expanding. This has resulted in an album bustling with elements ancient and familiar, violent and strange, earthen and spectral – all the while fiercely seeking to surprise and move the listener.

Once again recorded in Studio Bloch in the Faroe Islands, but this time mixed by the legendary Swedish sound wizard Daniel Bergstrand in his Dugout Productions studio, Támsins likam exhibits a rawer and more mature version of the known Hamferð sound. The somewhat harsh and bare soundscape deliberately contrasts with the refined compositions, while at the same time aligning with the increasingly honest and violent lyrical content.

“Faroese doom metal” is a powerful sound. Exclusive to this self-styled tag is Hamferð. For a near decade, the funeral dressed sextet has been casting a unique expression rooted in conceptual tragedy and intense, narrative doom metal.

Faroese history and folklore are mixed together with grand atmospheres, a trademark that has earned worldwide attention. Stages at festivals such as Inferno, Midgardsblot, Tuska, Summer Breeze, Wacken and many more have been turned into funerary ceremonies. Touring with bands like Amorphis and Moonsorrow has further garnered the band a respected reputation due to strong yet solemn live performances.

The lyrical and conceptual approach is ambitious in scope. People are drawn to it, even though the band sings in their native tongue, Faroese. With a highly engaging idea concerning lyrics and songwriting, the hour has arrived to close a conceptual trilogy which commenced with the 2010 EP Vilst er siðsta fet, continued with the internationally acclaimed 2013 full-length album Evst, and is now concluded with Támsins likam .

Támsins likam track-listing:
01. Fylgisflog
02. Stygd
03. Tvístevndur meldur
04. Frosthvarv
05. Hon Syndrast
06. Vápn í anda

Hamferð line-up:
Jon Aldara – Vocals
John Egholm – Guitar
Theodor Kapnas – Guitar
Isak Petersen – Bass
Esmar Joensen – Keyboards
Remi Johannesen – Drums

Edu Falaschi Announces “Rebirth of Shadows Tour” – Performing Angra Classics Across Brazil

Five years after leaving Angra in 2012, internationally renowned Brazilian power vocalist Edu Falaschi will be embarking on his “Rebirth of The Shadows Tour” across Brazil where he will be performing songs from albums he has appeared on such as “Rebirth”, “Hunters and Prey”, “Temple of Shadows”, “Aurora Consurgens” and “Aqua”. Joining Falaschi on the tour will be ex-Angra members drummer Aquilles Priester and keyboardist Fabio Laguna. The tour originally began in July of this summer with 7 packed shows that totaled over 10,000 in attendance. Now it returns for 23 dates in December and January (dates listed below).

“I’ve had many requests for concerts singing Angra! It’s natural since I was Angra’s lead singer for 12 years. Now Angra fans around the globe can have the chance to hear the Angra anthems performed by the original singer in an emotional and nostalgic experience that will bring back the good feelings from the golden years! I plan to perform first in South America and from there reach fans across USA, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia.” says Falaschi.

In 2016, Falaschi released both his solo album “Moonlight” and “E.V.O”, the 5th studio album from ALMAH via Test Your Metal Records. Throughout his career, Edu Falaschi has sold over 1 million albums, recorded 15 albums, along with several world tours that have included Japan, Europe, UAE and South America plus many important festivals like Wacken, Sweden Rock, Monsters of Rock, Rock in Rio, Progpower, Rock Machina, Gods of Metal, etc.

Accuser announces new album, ‘The Mastery’

– November 21st, 2017 –

Releases video for first single, “Mission: Missile”

German Thrash legends Accu§er will release their new album, The Mastery, on January 26th via Metal Blade Records! Accu§er comments: “2017 has been quite busy for us, as we wanted to come back with a bang and to present you a more than decent follow up to ‘The Forlorn Divide‘. For us, ‘The Mastery‘ is the essence of what Accu§er is all about. It definitely feels like the angry newborn child of ‘Who Dominates Who‘ and ‘Repent‘. We just hope all you thrashers out there are going to enjoy this record as much as we do!”

Fans can watch the video for the first single, “Mission: Missile”, at: metalblade.com/accuser – where the album can also be pre-ordered in the following formats:


–jewelcase-CD
–180g black vinyl
–aubergine marbled vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 200 copies)
–black purple splattered vinyl (EU exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
–pastel pink/violet marbled vinyl (US exclusive – limited to 160 copies)

The Mastery track-listing:
01. Mission: Missile
02. The Real World
03. Solace in Sorrow
04. Time for Silence
05. My Skin
06. Catacombs
07. Mourning
08. Ruthless
09. Into the Black
10. The Mastery

Accu§er has been in a constant songwriting mode during the past year. Combined with the energy and spontaneity from several live shows, the songs came to fruition very quickly. Together with long-time producer Martin Buchwalter, they made the record in the summer of 2017 at well-known Gernhart Studio (Destruction, Tankard and many more). For the band, The Mastery is the missing link between the technical virtuosity of their classic album Who Dominates Who and the more basic, heavy approach of Repent – making it their best album since their comeback in 2008. The Mastery contains all of the elements that define the Accu§er sound: heavy, chunky thrash riffs, aggressive vocals with a touch of melody – in addition to the high class guitar solos by youngster Dennis Rybakowski. When it comes to the lyrical side of their songs, Accu§er still raises their voices to denounce social grievances.

Accu§er line-up:
Frank Thoms – vocals/guitars
Dennis Rybakowski – guitars
Frank Kimpel – bass
Olli Fechner – drums
