Magma Rise Releases “False Flag Operation” EP

Today – March 14th, 2016 – Hungarian doom metal band Magma Rise sees a new EP release via Nail Records / Hammer Music. The “False Flag Operation” EP comes out 3 years after previous CD “The Man In The Maze.”

Vocalist / bassist Holdampf Gábor comments on this freshly released mini-album: “The new songs are a bit more gloomy unlike the tracks of ‘The Man In The Maze. That’s the extract of all the things which sorrounds us know. We live in a World in what everything is about juggling with people, rushing them into dreams then crushing them up…

“The Trouble cover was in our mind for many years and finally we worked it out. The apropops is just that that our friend Butch – the doom legend, singer of Penance erstwhile, and the member of Argus nowdays – mentioned before that he would like to record this song and looking for partners in that. I told him that Magma Rise would happily take part in it. Then for some different reasons we held over this project. But the time has come now!”

See the band live in Europe:

Therion Announces Headlining European Tour Dates

Swedish symphonic metal troop Therion is set to kick off a European headline tour in January 2016. On this run the band will be playing a very special, best-of set list.

Support will come from occult rockers Luciferian Light Orchestra, Mongolian nomadic metallers Ego Fall, and last but not least from Russian symphonic metal force Imperial Age. Therion band leader Christofer Johnsson commented about the upcoming tour:

“We asked the fans on FB about what they wanted to hear. Hundreds of people voted and in the end we got a result – people wanted to hear classic, particularity from ‘Secret Of The Runes,’ ‘Vovin,’ and ‘Theli,’ so we are putting an extra focus on those. They also wanted to hear odd and rare songs that we have never played live before, so there will be a bunch of those as well as some songs we haven’t performed more than just once or twice, or not in a long, long time.“

Obsidian Kingdom Kicking Off European Tour Dates

Spanish outfit Obsidian Kingdom is kicking off a European tour tonight in Ireland. The band will then travel throughout Europe supporting Solstafir, hitting various locations in The United Kingdom, Germany, Austria, Poland, Hungary, and more before concluding on November 22md. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

Obsidian Kingdom also recently premiered a video for the “Ball-Room” track, taken off ambitious debut album, “Mantiis – An Agony in Fourteen Bites.”

Regarding the music video, the band comments: “Behold Obsidian Kingdom’s music video for ‘Ball-Room,’ one of the bloodiest chapters out of Mantiis and a shocking visual tale portraying sex, death, and a good load of frenzied pleasures. Shot and directed by the band and Oyeme! Studio in a damp basement, this clip is not recommended for the faint of heart. Don’t forget to wash your eyes after you’ve watched it.”

With singer Pelle Ahmen’s fight-the-horde belt leading these Swedes into battle, this black mass functions much like Sonic Youth’s Sister: a smart band putting the pieces together in a way that both solidifies and futzes with their sound adding goth rock textures to old school Scandinavian thrash worship, making for a record that sounds both more accessible and more personal.Rolling Stone, #4 – 20 Best Metal Albums of 2013

In Solitude sound more mature on ‘Sister’: the band’s early-’80s metal influences are stripped down, making room for gothic influences, with Pelle Åhman growing more confident as lead singer.#5 on Terrorizer Magazine’s top 50 of 2013
