It’s the Ultimate Force.”

Check out now “Standing in Place” below.

Tells vocalist Tony Mesue about the track’s subject matter:

“‘Standing in Place‘ is a metaphor illustrating the desensitization of society and the no action/lack of motivation due to fear. Others may have a purpose to stand, but others play a role in keeping us from our ultimate goals and or finish line! This song is meant to be an example of the duality in life and the roles others play around us, wasting our time!”

Ultimatum Re-Issuing “Puppet Of Destruction” On Vinyl

Roxx Records will be re-releasing a classic Ultimatum album on vinyl, with the label issuing this statement:

“Please join us as we celebrate the 20th anniversary of this seminal underground Christian thrash album entitled ‘Puppet of Destruction!’ Yes that’s right we are proudly releasing a limited edition vinyl pressing of the album from Ultimatum which is actually the band’s second full-length studio release.

“Originally recorded in 1997 and released in 1998 via Rowe Productions the album was well received but the band was never quite happy with that original releases master and mix. So Roxx Records would go on to remaster and reissue ‘Puppet of Destruction’ on CD to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the release. Now as we approach the 20th anniversary of this album Roxx has spared no expense making this release extra special for the fans and the band as we celebrate Ultimatum and their ‘Puppet of Destruction’ with its first ever VINYL release!

“This limited edition pressing of only 150 hand numbered copies is on a very cool green and black swirl vinyl, with full color center rings. The artwork was reimagined and reworked by Scott Waters (No Life til Metal/Roxx Records) and each pressing comes with an enclosed limited edition 11 x 17 poster with new artwork designed by Andy Borders to celebrate the 20th anniversary!

“Also in honor of this anniversary we have printed a very special run of the ‘Live Through The Years’ DVD that was originally only released as a part of the limited edition box set which has been sold out for years. This is your chance to get a copy of that DVD as part of a vinyl package or as a stand-alone DVD. The DVD features a live performance in California from the Up From The Ashes 3 festival as well as a host of other videos and performances jam packed in to one DVD. Even more we have a VERY limited number of a special print of the ‘Puppet of Destruction’ poster artwork on a limited edition t shirt. There is a VERY limited amount of these and they will be a part of the Ultimate Puppet Package and when they are gone so is this package.

“The Ultimatum Ultimate package will include everything above including a copy of the remastered and expanded CD which we only have 50 copies remaining of before being completely sold out as well.”

Woe Streams An Ode To “The Ones We Lost”

U.S. black metal unit Woe will release new “Hope Attrition” full-length album next month via new label home Vendetta Records. In advance of its release and in conjunction with Valentine’s Day, today “The Ones We Lost” is offered up for public feasting.

“If the name doesn’t give it away, ‘The Ones We Lost’ is about coming to terms with a loved one’s death,” elaborates founding guitarist/vocalist Chris Grigg. “For me, it is the most draining song of Woe’s entire catalog. I, the other members of the band, and seemingly everyone I know had to deal with sudden deaths of family and friends over the past few years. Even if you recover, it leaves you changed.”

He goes on to say, “The cognitive dissonance between your body’s sense of something fundamentally broken in the world and the world’s indifference never really goes away. I think of this song as the emotional centerpiece of the album, a statement about grappling with the individual’s powerlessness in the face of the ultimate, final uncaring force.”

Unconcerned with scene schemes and useless labeling tags, Faithxtractor will continue down the dark path set forth on previous releases while forever moving forward into darkened territory. The prime directive: sick riffs, metal & death.

“We are honored and very pleased to have the opportunity to release our next album through Hells Headbangers,” says Ash Thomas. “Having worked with them personally on other projects, I’ve come to greatly respect their work ethic and dedication. We are extremely proud of the death metal we’ve created for album #3, and it’s very assuring to have a label such as Hell Headbangers behind the coming onslaught!”

Scarlet Records Inks Deal With Arthemis, New Album Announced

Acclaimed Italian metal band Arthemis has signed a deal with Scarlet Records for the release of the new album “Blood-Fury-Domination.” This will be the first new material in five years (2012’s “We Fight”).

Widely recognized as a ground-breaking live band, Arthemis’ career is marked by several amazing shows full of energy and true passion. The band performed at some of the biggest Metal festivals in the world (Download Festival, Hellfest Open Air, Wacken Open Air, Bloodstock Open Air, Gods Of Metal, Hard Rock Hell, Hammerfest and many more) and toured relentlessly since day one, eventually becoming the ultimate road-warriors. But the band has also delivered 7 full-length killer studio albums (plus the astonishing “Live From Hell – Live In The UK”), proving that when it’s about time to forge a new studio release you can expect all the power and glory that the band has to give: blood, sweat, tears and fury.

“Blood-Fury-Domination” is absolutely over the top! Massive production, uplifting songs, sing-along choruses and a true wall-of-sound that mixes the deepest roots of metal with modern influences and hooks. Songs like “Undead,” “Black Sun,” “Into The Arena,” “Warcry” and “Blood Red Sky” prove the band right and will resonate in metalheads forever. This true piece of art absolutely means “no compromise”! Love it or leave it! It clearly screams “We are Arthemis and we’re gonna get you all”!

“Blood-Fury Domination” was been mixed by Simone Mularoni (DGM) and will be released on April 7th. More information is expected soon.
