With an impressive collective past in the extreme side of metal and the ambition to blaze the trail of musical violence, Cut Up has come to claim the throne. Combining grinding death metal with a modern approach and high musicianship, yet always with key focus on brutality, these Swedes are notorious for bringing the gore wherever they go. With their new album, Wherever They May Rot, Cut Up has reached a whole new level of brutality. Guitarist/vocalist Andreas Bjornson comments: “‘Wherever They May Rot‘ is an utter bloodbath from start to finish. We have managed to push the savagery even further than before, also broadening our sound without compromising one inch of aggression. Everyone has performed at the top of their game and the new songs are without a doubt the strongest we’ve ever created, reaching new heights in both speed and heaviness. We have sharpened our blades and the thirst for blood is unquenchable. The year of 2017 belongs to Cut Up!”

Get this and 10 more killing anthems with ‘Wherever They May Rot‘, out March 24th worldwide on Metal Blade Records!”

October Tide Announces New Album “Winged Waltz”

Formed in 1995 by Katatonia members Jonas Renkse and Fred Norrman, October Tide spawned two cult releases – “Rain Without End” (1997) and “Grey Dawn” (1999) – before going on hiatus for over 11 years.

Reunited in 2009, and since 2015 with a new full-time drummer Jocke Wallgren (Valkyrja, Astrophobos), the Swedes continue to push their vision of melodic death/doom metal to the next level.

Executed with passion, the band’s new album “Winged Waltz” is a showcase of what talent and expertise can bring to the table. Alexander Högbom (vocals) comments on the new album:

“This is undoubtedly the best and most emotionally charged material October Tide has created, in my opinion. I know how much hard work Fredrik (guitars) has put into making this album and you can really feel the thought behind it all. I almost injured myself physically and was close to pass out a couple of times during the recording of the vocals. I gave it all to match the intense music and those powerful lyrics and I’m very happy with the result.”

The successor to “Tunnel Of No Light” (2013) was recorded, mixed and mastered in Wing Studios (Demonical, Centinex, Diabolical) in Sweden and produced by Sverker Widgren. The track listing is as follows:

1. Swarm
2. Sleepless sun
3. Reckless abandon
4. A questioin ignite
5. Nursed by the cold
6. Lost in rapture
7. Perilous
8. Coffins of November
