Many words come to mind when you hear the name Cannibal Corpse, but one truly defines the soon-to-be thirty-year death metal veterans: Unstoppable. Produced by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Goatwhore), Red Before Black serves to not only reiterate this but to once more raise the stakes, making it very clear who sets the standard when it comes to always compelling music that is equally brutal and complex. Moreover, the band have pushed themselves again, ensuring that it stands out from their catalog. “Throughout our career we’ve tried to improve the precision of both our musical execution and our album production, while still maintaining full-on aggression. ‘Red Before Black‘ continues in that direction, but might go even further on the aggressive side of things. It’s definitely precise, but it has a rawness to it that goes beyond anything we’ve done recently,” asserts bassist Alex Webster. “We really worked super hard crafting these songs, practicing them, and getting them where we wanted to be more so than on any of our previous albums,” adds drummer Paul Mazurkiewicz. “And as Alex said, musically I think it’s the most raw sound we’ve had – and at the same time I think it’s our most focused, tightest and catchiest record.”

The Black Dahlia Murder announces exclusive flexi with New Noise Magazine

– October 10th, 2017 –

Flexi track, “Gone But Not Forgotten”, now streaming online

As previously announced, the Halloween issue of New Noise Magazine features a cover story with The Black Dahlia Murder; that same issue includes a flexi from the band, with the track “Gone But Not Forgotten”. To purchase your copy online, please visit: newnoisemagazine.com/black-dahlia-murder-new-noise-cover/. “Gone But Not Forgotten” can be streamed now at: newnoisemagazine.com/black-dahlia-murder-new-noise-flexi/

The Black Dahlia Murder released their eighth full-length, Nightbringers, last week via Metal Blade Records. To preview and purchase the album, please visit: metalblade.com/tbdm

Rather than meticulously plan things out or stick rigidly to any kind of template, when it comes to writing, The Black Dahlia Murder prefer to let things happen organically. In the hands of guitarist Brian Eschbach – who co-founded the band with front-man Trevor Strnad in 2001 – and new recruit Brandon Ellis (Arsis, ex-Cannabis Corpse), Nightbringers is rich with dynamic riffs that are at once fresh and classic The Black Dahlia Murder, resulting in a collection that shifts through many moods and effortlessly incorporates various elements of extreme metal. While Strnad explores a variety of themes and ideas with his lyrics, they are united by the album’s title, which embraces a tenet that has been central to The Black Dahlia Murder‘s output since the very beginning. “Death metal and nighttime are synonymous to me,” Strnad explains. “We are the rulers of the darkened hours that the Christian good fears. A lot of archaic ideas that are still upheld – such as marriage and monogamy – came from Christianity, whether people want to acknowledge it or not, and to me, death metal has always been bucking that. It’s ‘being-the-villain music’, because we’re the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of all that is good and traditional. Death metal is for free thinkers, it’s for showing people the path to inner strength and operating on your own will, instead of being told what to do and living in fear, and songs like the title track and ‘Kings Of The Nightworld’ are about leading a legion of awakened minds into battle.”

New Song “Bortom Hemom” Available From Agusa

With the eponymous third LP from Sweden’s psychedelic prog rock alchemists Agusa confirmed for late October release through Laser’s Edge, the album’s closing movement “Bortom Hemom” has been made available for streaming in the player below.

Agusa was recorded and mixed by Viktor Rinneby and mastered by Grammy-winning engineer Bob Katz, and sees the band delivering the singular brand of trance-inducing, folk-inspired, psychedelic rock through more traditional track lengths, offering five songs which range from five to ten-and-a-half minutes in length and are a bit heavier than the album’s predecessors.

Agusa’s Mikael Ödesjö offers of the song:”‘Bortom Hemom’ translates roughly as ‘Beyond Homeward’ and consists of two sections joined together by a bridge. The first part is in 7/4 and the second in 3/4. Perhaps our most ‘progressive’ effort this far. Enjoy!”

The follow-up to 2015’s “Agusa 2” (Två ) sees the Agusa circleexpanding the kaleidoscopic output which conjures images of nature and the cosmos, the extensive passages again leading the listener into fantastic realms of a possibly supernatural or parallel existence. The record is completed with fantastic artwork by Danilo Stankovic and design by Peter Wallgren.

Laser’s Edge will release Agusa on digital, CD, and LP on October 27th. The track list is:

1. Landet Längesen
2. Sorgenfri
3. Den Förtrollade skogen
4. Sagor från Saaris
5. Bortom hemom

Debut Single “Salvage Dump” To Be Issued By Offensive Ground

Swedish metal act Offensive Ground has announced the debut single “Salvage Dump,” set to be unleashed on September 29th! The song is taken from the upcoming debut album “Nightmare King” slated for release later this year.

Stated the band: “Finally, we can proudly announce the release of ‘Salvage Dump’ the first single from our debut album ‘Nightmare King’. September 29th will set the tone for the devastation to follow in it’s wake. Be sure to follow us on Spotify to be among the first to hear it and the full album upon release!”

Formed in Luleå, Sweden fall 2011, Offensive Ground is a back to the roots, kick down your door kind of metal music. In February 2017, the band entered the studio to record what will be the debut album “Nightmare King” (with plans for late 2017 release).

Offensive Ground is a band that pulls from many inspirations and many cultures while still retaining that in your face rock’n’roll groove. The intensity is also carried on through out the live shows with energetic running, jumping, and all around maniac thrashing madness. The band seamlessly pulls off brutal riffing and epic harmonies all while keeping you engaged as instructed to ‘tear down the walls till your hands break.’

The new album confirms that Offensive Ground has evolved into a monster that won’t be stopping in the forseeable future, and as they say ‘Welcome to our Nightmare.’ Watch the album teaser right here:

Nuclear Blast Records Inks Deal With Letters From The Colony

A highly complex construct of math metal, crushing death elements and virtuosic shoegaze moments – Letters From The Colony creates more than just songs. The young progressive extreme metal architects from Borlänge in Sweden are building tracks that are able to catapult them right into the league of bands such as Meshuggah, Opeth or Gojira with their first album only just on the horizon.

The five young musicians are proud to announce that they have signed a deal with Nuclear Blast whilst the debut album “Vignette” is currently in the making. But lowering its sights for the debut album or taking just small steps at the beginning of a career has always been out of the question for Letters From The Colony. The first full-length release is already being mastered by Jens Bogren (Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, Pradise Lost), whilst Peter Tägtgren (Hypocrisy, PAIN, Lindemann) has not shied away from declaring a big recommendation for the band.

Letters From The Colony builds upon the intersection between perfection and ordered chaos; the unbridled joy of experimentation and virtuosic instrument mastery. They deliver highly complex songs full of unbounded aggression and progressive structures, but also do not shy away from playing saxophone alongside guitars or sampling the call of a deer into a track!

Obviously, the cover artwork choice for the band is another proof of the quintet’s dazzling multi-faceted qualities, and it arrives as rare and vibrant as they come (see below), pushing Letters From The Colony into a completely new niche compartment of technically challenging extreme metal.

More info, as well as the first songs from ‘Vignette’ will be unveiled soon.

EMP Label Group Inks Deal With Chronus

Hailing from Helsingborg, Sweden, Chronus is an exalted quartet formed in 2015 and led by the Baron. Young, fresh and visionary, the band carries the metal torch with astonishing maturity. Delivering a majestic performance filled with striking melodies and hard-hitting riffs, Chronus has been compared to the likes of Mastodon and Gojira. Vocalist/guitarist the Baron, dressed in white, embodies a voice reminiscent of Ozzy Osbourne, complementing the work of his three black-clad associates.

October 28th marks the official European release of Chronus’ self-titled debut album on Ellefson Music Productions, aka EMP Label Group, the label of legendary Megadeth bassist David Ellefson (the North American release is tentatively planned for 2018). After a well-received performance at this year’s Sabaton Open Air, the band are currently preparing for a Scandinavian tour supporting Soilwork and The Unguided.

In order to spread rapture upon the people, Chronus ceremoniously converts its audience in a relentless conquest to take on the World. Join their voyage to the City of Light!

For a taste of Chronus, check out the lyric video for “City Of Light” here:
