Zornheym Announces Debut Album “Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns”

Swedish symphonic extreme metal band Zornheym is preparing to unleash new album “Where Hatred Dwells and Darkness Reigns” this September 15th via Non Serviam Records.

With magnificent visual artistry in the form of cover art by Lordigan Pedro Sena and a concept expanding graphic novel illustrated by Anu Bring, every chapter tells gruesome tales of an asylum for the criminally insane.

The band comments: “This is the first chapter in the history of Zornheym and we are so very proud of the outcome. The performance of everyone involved has been amazing. To use so many real instruments from day one feels like such an accomplishment. This is just the beginning!”

Wing Studio’s sound wizard Sverker Widgren comments: “It was a great pleasure to take part in the journey of the creation of this record. To have Zornheym here in the studio with the ambition to make an album that is so much more than an ordinary metal album made me very excited to produce this recording from day one. Now looking at the final result, the power of Zornheym’s music can’t be denied really.”

Demonical Recruits New Vocalist Alexander Högbom

Demonical has officially split with the band’s vocalist and now brought on a new band member. The group issued this statement about the situation:

“We have parted with vocalist Sverker Widgren due to various time and priority related matters. As there are always two sides to every story and answers might differ depending on who you ask, we prefer to keep the more detailed reasons amongst the ones involved and not publicly go into further explanations. However, in order to avoid any speculations we can inform you that there is no bad blood between any of us, we want to thank Sverker for all the years in the band and we wish him the very best of luck for the future.

“As the band has always operated under the motto ‘only the best is good enough,’ we are thrilled to announce that one of Sweden’s premium death metal vocalists, Alexander Högbom (known from acts such as October Tide and Centinex) has joined us as our new permanent commander.

“In order to raise the flames even higher, we can hereby also reveal that after more than two years in Demonical on a session basis, guitarist Eki Kumpulainen and drummer Kennet Englund have both become full-time members of the band.

“With this determined and solid line-up we are very much looking forward to the upcoming Finnish shows next week, the summer tour across Eastern Europe during July as well as the album recording in the autumn.

“Yes that’s right, during the fall we will (finally) record our fifth full-length album for an early 2018 release. We have tapped an award-winning Swedish producer for the task and we are confident that the album – which summons bits and pieces from all our previous releases – will become an improved quality-related chapter for Demonical and push our Swedish Death Metal Darkness to a new level. The future looks more than victorious!”

Alexander Högbom added: “It is with excitement and great honor I will shoulder Sverker Widgren’s position in Demonical. I have known the band for almost 10 years now and we have toured together all over the globe with my other bands both as support and vice versa. This is one more step for me into the chasm of Swedish death metal darkness.”

New Track, Album Details Available From Centinex

Swedish old-school death metal act Centinex is going to release a new album titled “Doomsday Rituals” on July 8th via Agonia Records. Along with the street date, the band has revealed the first new song – “Exist to Feed” – which is available for streaming in the player below.

Centinex originated in 1990 as a riff-oriented part of the classic Swedish death metal movement and disbanded in 2005 after releasing eighth full-length albums. In 2014, the band surprisingly resurfaced with a refreshed line-up of Martin Schulman (Demonical) on bass, Sverker Widgren (Demonical, Diabolical) on guitars, Alexander Högbom (October Tide, Spasmodic) on vocals and Kennet Englund (Interment, Centinex 1999-2003) on drums. Year 2014 also saw the release of the comeback record, “Redeeming Filth.”

The band doesn’t want the fans to be kept waiting another near-decade for a new album. Titled “Doomsday Rituals”, the record is a natural follow-up to “Redeeming Filth”. Martin Schulman (bass) commented: “Heavy riffing, deep brutal vocals, everything from slow via mid-tempo to faster stuff, a perfect mix of the early 90’s Florida and Stockholm sound”.

“Doomsday Rituals” was recorded at Wing Studios with Sverker Widgren (Centinex, Demonical, Diabolical) behind the knobs. The cover artwork was made by Bahrull Marta of Abomination Imagery.

The track list for the album is:

1. Flesh Passion
2. From Intact to Broken
3. Dismemberment Supreme
4. Generation of Flies
5. The Shameful Few
6. Doomsday
7. Exist to Feed
8. Death Decay Murder
9. Sentenced to Suffer
10. Faceless
