Moss Of Moonlight ‘Winterwheel’ Out Now


Blackened folk metal duo Moss Of Moonlight has today released their new album ‘Winterwheel’.

'Winterwheel' follows the highly acclaimed debut 'Seed', a concept album about a band of Pacific North Western rebels that rise up and create the Republic of Cascadia. 'Winterwheel' digs deeper into the earth; a 45 minute trance into the otherworld’s. Using Anglo-Saxon chanting, haunting female vocals, visceral growls, and a giant atmosphere, Moss of Moonlight has put ancient Pagan ritual into song. It's an album of Anglo Saxon gods and primal Paganism and as the band says, "it reaches far beyond 'Seed', into colder and darker territories."

“Winterwheel is a ritual put to song. It embraces the turning of the seasons, and the necessary, vicious loop of birth and death” states Jenn Grunigen. “Each song delves into the nature of a different Anglo Saxon god or goddess, and is steeped in the old, cyclic roads of our Pagan ancestors, as well as the very language of the Anglo Saxons. With this wisdom and craft, we made new rites--in other words, Winterwheel, this sacrifice to the gods, the cosmos. With each play, the ritual is brought to life once more, and anyone willing to listen is a participant in the offering.”

‘Winterwheel’ Track Listing
01) Gaet
02) Eole
03) Catte
04) Hraefne

Arceye Reveal Final ‘At First Light’ Behind The Scenes Video


UK death thrashers Arceye have posted the final installment of their studio blogs that take the viewer behind the scenes of 'At First Light', the bands upcoming new album.

View 'At First Light' Studio Blog Part 2 here: -
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgKfLj-QVjE

States the band: “This is the final video which shows us setting up our own mobile Pro Tools setup to record guitars, bass and vocals. We recorded everything at a few locations including our practice room. Doing it this way meant that we could take our time and get the performances we wanted without the pressure of daily studio costs. When we had finished we sent it all off to Scott Atkins (Sylosis, Cradle Of Filth, Amon Amarth, Gama Bomb) at Grindstone Studios to re-amp, mix and master it.”

The video also shows the artwork process that was undertaken by the bands drummer Craig Mackay. “Craig painted the front cover and all of the portraits. These were then scanned into the computer and Craig finished off the final artwork layouts and text. Even though this was a fairly long process we always wanted to put together a great album package, which included the artwork as well as the music within. We believe we have achieved this and are very proud of the finished product. We hope everyone else agrees.”
“The album artwork, title and first track tie in together as we wanted this to be our opening statement, with the theme running through the album. The idea behind the name/artwork is that the wolf climbing the mountain is always hungrier than the wolf on top. We feel we have gone through a rebirth as a band and this album is all about the climb to get us on to the next run of the ladder.

Moss Of Moonlight Reveal ‘Eole’ Lyric Video From New Album ‘Winterwheel’


Blackened folk metal duo Moss Of Moonlight have released a lyric video for ‘Eole’ taken from the bands upcoming album ‘Winterwheel’ which is scheduled for release June 21st, 2013.

Singer, drummer and percussionist Jenn Grunigen comments on the song: “Eole is a song about Hretha, a little-known Anglo Saxon goddess. Because not much is known about her, we took some liberties in creating a mythic cycle of her own--a depiction that is, in all likelihood, utterly wrong. But this album is not just about adhering to ancient ways--it's about creating new ones (and one common interpretation of Hretha is that she's associated with rebirth). Humans are not what they once were, for better and worse. So, this song tells of humanity's power to give life--even to goddesses; it's the story of an elk and her feral, wandering goddess-companion whose life force thrives in human blood.”

See the video here: -

Described as "a true rarity in the black metal genre" by Pure Gain Audio, 'Winterwheel' follows the highly acclaimed debut 'Seed', a concept album about a band of Pacific North Western rebels that rise up and create the Republic of Cascadia. 'Winterwheel' digs deeper into the earth; a 45 minute trance into the otherworld’s. Using Anglo-Saxon chanting, haunting female vocals, visceral growls, and a giant atmosphere, Moss of Moonlight has put ancient Pagan ritual into song.

Shadow Kingdom Records To Release NIGHT DEMON Self-titled EP

On August 6th, Shadow Kingdom Records will release the self-titled four-song EP from NWOBHM-inspired upstarts NIGHT DEMON.

This California trio, featuring members of THE FUCKING WRATH, first started making noise in 2011. It didn't take long for the band to make a name for themselves with trad-metal maniacs from across the globe. In fact, shortly after establishing an online presence via Bandcamp, the organizers of Germany's Keep It True Festival offered NIGHT DEMON a place on the fest's 2014 line-up.

British metallic stylings reminiscent of Angel Witch, Raven and Iron Maiden are kicked into overdrive with an edgier and gritter dose of American venom. Consider NIGHT DEMON mandatory listening for any NWOBHM fan. The Shadow Kingdom Records CD release is remastered from the digital version and offers an undeniably superior sound.     
A video for the song "Night Demon," filmed, directed and produced by the band, is now playing at this location.

Pre-orders are available at www.store.shadowkingdomrecords.com.

Black Death Metal Thrash demons ACHERON have completed the recording process for their upcoming Listenable Records release, Kult Des Hasses.The album is now set to enter the mixing and mastering phase. 

ACHERON will be doing a mini-tour with INCANTATION in late July. The band has enlisted DISMEMBERMENT guitarist Jacob Shively to fill the slot of second guitarist. When asked if Shively would be their new permanent second guitarist, ACHERON founder Vincent Crowley stated, "Jacob is a talented guitarist and fan of the band. His group DISMEMBERMENT opened for ACHERON a few times and I really liked them. That is why I asked him about filling in. But we are taking baby steps. We've learned from past experiences not to just give hire someone right away. For now he is playing with us for all upcoming live shows. We'll just have to see if it progresses into something more. But we are indeed open to the idea if the dedication and chemistry is there."

ACHERON will also head to Germany to headline the Death Doomed the Age Fest in September and and return in October for the Under the Banner of the Black Light fest. 
Confirmed ACHERON Live Dates:
07/18 - Philadelphia, PA @ TBA
07/19 - Baltimore, MD @ Ottobar w/ INCANTATION

SKELETAL SPECTRE: TheRitualMag.com Streams 'Black Augury Hollow'

With the North American release date of SKELETAL SPECTRE's Voodoo Dawn looming on the horizon, TheRitualMag.com is ushering in the darkness with a stream of album track 'Black Augury Hollow' and an exclusive interview with frontwoman Vanessa Nocera.

The interview and stream can both be found at this location.

Spearheaded by the unholy Death / Doom Metal queen Vanessa Nocera, Voodoo Dawnproudly displays a plethora of sagacious riffs that crush like a two-ton hammer and yet sickens enough to contaminate a diseased swamp. Sludge parts crawl in and out on occasions in an malefic alliance with some ugly D-Beat indulgence!

With the entire full-length effort written and recorded at Morbid Apparition Studios while mixing and mastering duties were reined under the watchful eye of Patrick Bruss (Ribspreader, Acid Witch, Cianide, Impetigo, etc), and with the artistic scarring by Adam Geyer (Bone Gnawer, Fondlecorpse, Wooden Stake, etc Voodoo Dawn is a tormenting solace of the most hideous hex-ridden Death Metal to ever cross one's path.

The album will hit North America on June 25th via Pulverised Records.
 

"...one of the dirtiest classic death metal sounds that I have heard since 1990..."

Contact ClawhammerPR@gmail.com for press inquiries.


SKELETAL SPECTRE began in 2008 by "Behold the Pentagram" who wanted to start a band with a heavy Doom Metal influence. He hooked up with two other friends of his and the trio began writing and recording their debut album, Tomb Coven, which was released by Razorback Recordings in late 2009. The album was a mix of Celtic Frost worship, old-Black Sabbath, and early 90's Swedish Death Metal ala Entombed. It proved to be a great debut that helped establish the band in a very-crowded underground metal scene. In the months after the release the band worked on some material for a planned MCD that eventually was canceled due to the guitar player leaving the band to work on other non-metal projects. "Behold the Pentagram" still wanting to continue the band, started working on songs for a 2nd album.

In November of 2010, Vanessa Nocera, known from the American Death Metal and Doom bands Scaremaker and Wooden Stake, and who had helped write lyrics for the first album, officially joined the band as lead vocalist; bringing a fresh and original approach to the band. "Behold the Pentagram" was looking for a singer that could do actual singing on the doomier parts, as well as evil death metal vocals on the more aggressive parts. After hearing Vanessa's melodic vocals for Wooden Stake and death metal vocals for Scaremaker, he knew this was the right singer for the band. At the same time, "Behold the Pentagram" took over guitar duties as well as bass, and "Haunting the Beyond" remained in the band as the drummer.

With the new line-up in place, the 2nd album was recorded. An eight-song juggernaut of heavy, down-tuned, powerful Doom/Death Metal, with an even bigger emphasis on slower, catchier riffs and a more intense vocal performance. The 2nd album, titled Occult Spawned Premonitions showcased the band at their absolute best: "Behold the Pentagram's" destructive, earth-shattering riffs and Vanessa's demonic and ghostly death-banshee-from-hell vocals and love for classic gothic and supernatural horror themes! This is simply a band and album that will leave Doom and Death Metal fans very pleased and hungry for more!

In late 2011, the band began work on their 3rd album, Voodoo Dawn, which saw the band wanting to go in a more extreme direction, but still keeping the killer melodies and catchy hooks from the first two albums.Voodoo Dawn, was completed in 2012 and is even better and more intense than ever before, showcasing the band's heaviness and memorable song writing along with an even more incredible vocal performance from Vanessa, who really gives her greatest vocal assault ever in a pure Death Metal way. This is truly the Skeletal Spectre album where everything has come together at last. A cohesive, dark, extreme, catchy, and utterly heavy Swedish Death Metal album with some of the most vicious female Death Metal vocals ever heard.





SKELETAL SPECTRE is: 

Vanessa Nocera - All Vocals 

Behold The Pentagram - Guitar & Bass 

Haunting The Beyond: Drums

DISPARAGED Signs With Apostasy Records

Apostasy Records and Swiss Death Metal act DISPARAGED have recently entered into an unholy alliance that will see the band release their upcoming fourth album on the label.

DISPARAGED exists to dispel any existing stereotypes regarding the laid-back nature of the Swiss. The quartet rounds off dynamic drums and harsh brutality with downright virtuous melodies within the solos. Their compositions are similarly conclusive and thrilling. DISPARAGED was formed in 1999 and since released a trio of well-received albums -OverlustBlood Source and The Wrath Of God. Their most recent release featured the mixing and mastering skills of Jacob Hansen (Aborted, Destruction, Pestilence).

DISPARAGED commented, "We are very proud to have found in Apostasy Records a for us perfectly tailored partner. We are looking forward to the cooperation and the release of our new album!"

Additional details and updates are coming soon.
