Against Magazine streams : Svart 'Det Personliga Helvetets Spiral'

ART OF PROPAGANDA has released "Det Personliga Helvetets Spiral", the latest full-length from SVART back in August, and now AGAINST MAGAZINE has the honor to stream it in full!

STREAM SVART "Det Personliga Helvetets Spiral" at this location:

SVART is the solo musical venture of Draug, SHINING's bassist, who is also known in daily life as Christian Larsson. The project started back in mid 2007, heavily influenced by slow, oppressive Black Metal. The first demo "Då allt upphör", and the debut "Vanära, vanmakt och avsmak" had quite an impact to those who were a fan of early Shining and now Draug is back with "Det Personliga Helvetets Spiral", an album where the musician decided to take a different path in his musical style.

'ALLIGATOR' is taken from the band's new album 'IGNITION' which was released on 11/10/13 on Discouraged Records.

Video by Erik Engbo & Björn Algers, Standard Film Team, 2013
Kicking and screaming their way out of Umeå in northern Sweden, CROWDBURN are back with their new record IGNITION. The five piece are renowned for their genre crossing hybrid of thrash, death metal and punk rock. IGNITION is a record that will have you circle-pitting, headbanging and singing along to the soaring melodies all at the same time.

Formed in late 2010, with the sole reason to write, record, play and tour heavy music, CROWDBURN hit the touring circuit hard in Scandanavia. This has included playing huge Nordic festivals like House of Metal and Rock Out Wild.

IGNITION is a record that stands proud and CROWDBURN are not afraid to wear their hearts on their sleeves. Taking no shame in drawing influences from 90's thrash, modern metal and in particular from their heroes, such as System Of A Down, Devin Townsend and Pantera.

The message from CROWDBURN is simple. These guys have made this band their number one priortiy and simply want to have a great time. The bands first music video, 'Confronted', clearly shows that these guys are down to earth and have a great sense of humour. CROWDBURN are well known for their unique music videos. Both songs 'Confronted' and the cover 'Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites' are great Youtube successes. Together they have half a million views and Scary Monsters topped the Swedish charts during the week it was released.

Band Members:
Aron Andersson - Vocals
Christoffer Lindmark - Guitar(Lead Guitarist)
Patrik Wall - Guitars
Jonathan Holmgren - Bass
Andreas Grehn - Drums

BONES: Sons of Sleaze Out Now on Planet Metal

Chicago's filthiest trio marches out of the sewers of hell with twelve freshly-severed slabs of death metal sleaze! Punk-injected metallers BONES has officially released their second full-length, Sons of Sleaze, on Planet Metal. Album track "13" has been posted HERE.

For ordering info, visit

Sons of Sleaze delivers its unfair share of nasty surprises, incorporating violent blasts and low-tuned slime with a dirty rock-and-roll backbone that has never been more apparent, especially when it comes to Jon Necromancer's undead belch!  The impossibly-heavy combination of Necromancer's bass and Carcass Chris's muscular guitar riffs is once again captured in all its devastating glory, and drummer Joe Warlord's huge vocabulary of patterns and fills keeps the energy level in the red for the entire 37-minute beating that is Sons of Sleaze.  Held together by a cover that could only be called "a new low" for artist Putrid, this album is highly recommended for the rotten-hearted, ill-natured, and furious! Sons of Sleaze was recorded with Sanford Parker (Lair of the Minotaur, Nachtmystium).

"This is death metal for those who favor the genre as an pure underground thing. No fancy stuff or anything elegant here, just real death metal, pure and simple."
- Eternal Terror

"The 12 songs that comprises Sons of Sleaze come and go with little surprise (other than Bones' blasting rendition of Terroroizer's Fear of Napalm), yet entertain in their brief hack-n-punch delivery." - Worm Gear 'Zine

Jon Necromancer - bass, lead vocals
Joe Warlord - drums, vocals
Carcass Chris - guitar, vocals

ACACIA - Tills döden skiljer oss åt

This is to me a totally new experience or should I say journey?

The Swedish outfit Acacia delivers a somewhat different album from what we usually get here.
At first listen I thought that this was some boring ambient stuff who repeated itself over and over each track.
I was terribly wrong and I have to bow down for that mistake.

'Tills döden skiljer oss åt' is to me a beautiful peace of art and a journey through a dreamy landscape revealing itself more and more throughout the album.
It's impossible how to describe how the manage to blend in all the different elements in here without failing.
I mean there are male vocals here mostly clean ,but also growly and even screamy.
All this combined with some nicely done female vocals a lot of their lyrics is done in their native language which is Swedish.

The music has mostly a warm feel to it as the album starts out with acoustic guitars and piano which slowly builds up towards very atmoshpheric (death) metal and then slows down again .

Their use of synths is just excellent and makes their sound more complete I would say.

It's a very majestic album overall and you should listen to the whole album as one.
I could go on forever to describe it,but to keep it short I can say that you are in for a lot of surprises on this album.

If you like bands like My Dying Bride and similar acts this might be something for you.


Irem - Obscuritas Aeterna (Ger)

Release date: May 11th, 2013.       Label: Self-released

This german black metal outfit's debut has been out for a while now.
This is pretty straight forward black metal pretty brutal ,but still I find it melodic at times thanx to the guitars I guess.
I have to admit that this is not bad at all ,but at times it ends up somewhat boring as it's far from original with it's typical black metal sound and screams.

If you look away from that it's a pretty descent album and it's worth a listen if you're a die hard black metal fan.
As for me it's pretty good when I only listen to one or two songs it's good ,if I listen to the whole album it becomes 'too much' ,but then again it's a matter of taste..

I wish they could focus on making 'their own' tracks in the future and not just play fast and technical all the way, as this band truly has talent and are good at handling their instruments,the vocals is good, but I want to hear tracks I don't feel I've heard somewhere else before.
