Grimner Posts New Video, “Dödens Dans” Online

Following their recent successful raid on the UK, including a triumphant appearance at Hammerfest, Swedish Viking horders Grimner has released a video for their latest single, “Dödens Dans.” You can check it out below. Speaking about the video, the band stated:

“Brothers and sisters! Today we want to present a song to you from our latest album ‘Vanadrottning’. It is called ‘Dödens Dans’ (Dance of Death), and it tells of an old challenge, in Sweden called ‘holmgång’. In ancient Nordic times, it was a way to solve disputes, and this solution was simply single combat. The winner would have the right to whatever he may have wanted from the loser, but if this challenge was ever denied by somebody, they would be marked as a niding (outcast). It is a fast-paced and energetic song, filled with melodies of old.

“Enjoy, friends. And if you already have, enjoy it again!”

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!

Primordial releases track-by-track commentary video from singer A.A. Nemtheanga about new album ‘Exile Amongst The Ruins’

– April 3rd, 2018 –

Irish Pagan Metal Gods Primordial have just released their new album, Exile Amongst The Ruins, last Friday through Metal Blade Records. Now the band has released a video – directed by Costin Chioreanu – in which singer A.A. Nemtheanga talks about the lyrical content of each track on the album – which can be viewed here: youtube.com/watch?v=7lqAPWv-0wo

To preview and purchase Exile Amongst The Ruins, please visit: metalblade.com/primordial

Once again building upon their signature sound, the follow up to 2014′s Where Greater Men Have Fallen is a more raw, “old school sounding” record than its predecessor. Hitting home with what vocalist A.A. Nemtheanga describes as “a direct energy” and wielding an urgency that is undeniable, the Irish quintet once again effortlessly blend elements of tragedy and might like no one else. Likewise, the evolution in their sound continues to be organic and unforced, ensuring that Exile Amongst The Ruins is essential listening for both their long term faithful and those only now drawn into their world.

The Crown lands on international charts with new album, ‘Cobra Speed Venom’

– March 28th, 2018 –

The Crown recently released their new album, Cobra Speed Venom, via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has now entered the international charts! See below for all positions:

#34 Official German Album Charts (Germany)
#99 Official Swiss Album Charts (Switzerland)
#26 Current Hard Music Albums (USA)
#41 Top New Artist Albums (USA)
#97 Record Label Independent Current Albums (USA)
#83 Top Hard Music Charts (Canada)

The Crown comments: “Really?? 34th most selling album in Germany last week? Entering Top 100 in Switzerland? Our raw untamed punkish styled Death/Thrash Metal?? I guess there’s hope for humanity after all! Or maybe this proves the opposite 😉 A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!”

To preview and purchase Cobra Speed Venom, please visit: metalblade.com/thecrown

With their motivation at an all-time high, The Crown spent most of 2017 intensely rehearsing 13 new songs. They eventually entered the classic Studio Fredman with Fredrik Nordstrom to record what would become their new album, Cobra Speed Venom. The sound is massive, brutal and a real punch in the face. Extreme speed and aggression mixed with classic heavy metal and rock n’ roll, which really shows that The Crown has no boundaries. The apocalyptic theme of the lyrics and music also fits perfectly with the outstanding artwork of Christian Sloan Hall.

After 27 years, the band is still motivated to create a classic piece of art – and together with Metal Blade Records once again, the vision is real.

The Crown live:
Apr. 13 – Dublin, Ireland – Voodoo Lounge
Apr. 14 – Leeds, UK – Wrath Fest
Apr. 15 – London, UK – The Underworld Camden
May 12 – Gothenburg, Sweden – Sticky Fingers
May 26 – Grangesberg, Sweden – Gamrocken
Oct. 6 – Hoogeveen, Netherlands – Graveland

The Crown line-up:
Johan Lindstrand – Vocals
Magnus Olsfelt – Bass
Marko Tervonen – Guitar
Robin Sorqvist – Lead guitar and backing vocals
Henrik Axelsson – Drums
