Crimfall premieres video for new single “Until Falls The Rain”

– August 16th, 2017 –

On August 25th, Finnish cinemascope metallers Crimfall will release their new album, Amain, worldwide via Metal Blade Records! Crimfall has now premiered the first video clip in support of the new album. Please visit youtube.com/watch?v=VcTmunax5OE to see the video for the new single “Until Falls the Rain”!

Crimfall comments: “Before we unleash the third storm that is ‘Amain‘, we present you our very first music video. ‘Until Falls The Rain’ is the crushing conclusion for the album, last simmering truths are laid low, throats bared against the unforgiving fall. It was a long day of drowning under homemade sprinklers, shooing away fire brigades and mopping away thousand lakes of water. In the end we are more than satisfied with the forlorn end result.”

The video was directed by Olli Hakkinen and shot by Max Smeds.

For more previews of Amain, both singles “The Last of Stands” and “Mother Of Unbelievers” can be heard at: metalblade.com/crimfall – where the record can be pre-ordered in the following formats:

–bluish gray marbled vinyl (USA exclusive – limited to 100 copies)
* exclusive bundles with a shirt, plus digital options are also available!

Amain is Crimfall‘s most ambitious album yet, combining familiar elements with fresh inspiration, and wreathed in massive crisp production from Fascination Street Studios. Featuring music that spans from monumental orchestrations to songs whispered over fading pyres, Amain contains layers upon layers of grand melodies woven between jagged shadows. On this new release, Crimfall also continues to sing the stories of wars waged in vain, advocating freedom from religious dogmas and the bloody chains of tradition.

Dark Sermon Calling It Quits

Johnny Crowder from Dark Sermon just issued the following statement about the band deciding to call it quits:

“Hey all, J here. My eyes are flooding as I type this, but you deserve to hear it. Dark Sermon has been my life’s work for nearly a decade – an unforgettable whirlwind of sweat, flat tires, and insane tours. In my head, DS would live on forever, but life rarely follows the imaginary paths we paint for it.

“At this point, we have fulfilled our contracts with eOne and Nuclear Blast. This, coupled with a rather unforgiving season of rotten luck, led several members to retire from touring altogether. While I was stubbornly determined to press on, the remaining members decided that now would be a good time to let DS rest.

“Initially, I couldn’t accept it, but now I understand. Since high school, we’ve barely had a moment to tend to anything outside of the band. Looking back, I see how undying dedication to one solitary thing can lead to imbalance.

“Is Dark Sermon done? Unfortunately, that is not up to me. However, I can’t just stop writing music and sharing it with the world. This is why I created my new band, Prison. You can watch our new music video or pre-order our new record if you’d like to support us.

“Although I am still trying to make peace with this situation, Dark Sermon brought immeasurable healing to me and countless others. And for that, I will never, ever forget it – or you. To everyone who has followed my personal journey with mental illness, faith, and sobriety, thank you. Whether you decide to accompany me in this new chapter or not, you’ve already given me more than I could ask for. You saved my life.

“I love each and every one of you. Deeply. Goodbye for now.”

Demonstealer Releases “From Rubble And Ruin” Music Video

Demonstealer just dropped a new music video for the track “From Rubble And Ruin,” which features George Kollias and caps the band’s latest album “This Burden Is Mine.”

Sahil “Demonstealer” Makhija had this to say about the clip: “I think the video takes a step away from the conventional metal ones and I’ll give complete credit to director Guilherme for this vision. I guess it was born from not actually having a full band or even myself to shoot because we are in different countries. So I gave him complete creative freedom and he delivered the goods I think.”

2. An Unforgiving Truth 08:01

Frontiers Music Srl Signs Withem

Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Norwegian progressive metal band Withem for the release of the band’s sophomore album, “The Unforgiving Road.”

Inspired by the likes of Symphony X, Pagan’s Mind, Dream Theater, and Circus Maximus among others, Withem started in 2011 when Øyvind Voldmo Larsen (guitars) and Ketil Ronold (keyboards) met the gifted drummer Frank Nordeng Røe. Soon they were joined by the voice talent Ole Aleksander Wagenius. While on the debut album bass duties were taken care of by the special guest Andreas Blomqvist from Seventh Wonder, now the band has Portugal-born Miguel Pereira fully integrated as the bassist in their lineup.

Withem’s music incorporates elements of progressive metal, symphonic metal and straightforward heavy metal. Creative virtuoso musicians, together with the unique vocal abilities of Ole Aleksander Wagenius, give the band a much-needed distinctive touch to stand out in the progressive metal scene.

The band states: “We were overwhelmed with the reviews and reactions we received worldwide on our first album, and we couldn’t wait for the next Withem chapter to take place. We pretty much set a goal for a follow-up soon after ProgPower USA 2014. Soon after we started the writing process, and entered the studio in January 2015 to pursue that ‘difficult second album.’ We are extremely happy that we could join forces with Frontiers Music Srl and ‘The Unforgiving Road’ will hopefully leave our listeners with a smile on their faces. We tried to stick to our guns when it comes to keeping a strong melodic approach to each song, while taking advantage of the unique abilities of every instrument. Overall we feel that the sound and production has evolved into an even more mature and modern landscape and we can’t wait to share ‘The Unforgiving Road’ with our friends and fans!”

More details including release date and shows will be revealed in the weeks ahead.

Blodhemn Releasing Sophomore Album “H7”

One-man Norwegian black metal project Blodhemn is pleased to spew forth sophomore full-length, “H7,” upon unsuspecting ears. Led by one Invisus, “H7” follows the “Brenn Alle Bruer” EP and “Holmengraa” debut.

Where tracks like “Flammens Virke” and “Slettet av Tid” disgorge blasphemous bile and ravenous anger, “Evig Heder” and “Veiten 3” tell of recent Norwegian history of war and of those who defended their country at all costs.

“The H7 monogram is used by Blodhemn as a symbol of Norwegian patriotism,” reveals Invisus, “an homage to late heroes and the hardship they had to endure. This, as well as the traditional tropes of black metal, take a large part in creating that trademark Norwegian grimness, lyrically. But my love for the west coast of my country, with its capricious weather and its grey, barren landscapes are a source of inspiration I always return to, be it words or music.”

Such is the case with closing track, “Holmengraa,” about the unforgiving treachery of the North Sea and the often brutal consequences for those who dare it; the majesty of its riffs are outdone only by the viciousness of its subject matter. The track listing is:

1. Flammenes Virke
2. Slettet Av Tid
3. Evig Heder
4. Veiten 3
5. Åndenes Ansikt
6. Fandesvenn
7. Holmengraa
