The Bleeding Reveal 'Rites Of Absolution' Details & Release Title Track

UK death thrashers The Bleeding are back with their latest vicious onslaught! In a world of hyper narcissism and apathetic delusion, half measures are no longer sufficient. Enter Rites Of Absolution; a 21st century horror story touching every splintered nerve ending and a hideous blood drenched vision of humanity's imminent demise. Recorded and mixed at MTR Studios in their native London, the follow up to the band's debut, Death Eternal, would then be mastered by the legendary Ade Emsley, famed for his work with Iron Maiden and Phil Campbell to name a couple.

The Bleeding take influence from the death and thrash greats... Slayer, Morbid Angel, Pestilence, Coroner, Asphyx... and with a fresh and exciting vigour, pay homage to those greats and at the same time emblazon their own stamp on a timeless genre. It's been a while since their debut show in September 2012 and even longer since their formation back in in 2010, but 2017 is a year that is sure to turn heads towards The Bleeding with the release of this aural assault of an album!
Guitarist Tasos Tzimorotas comments, "With Rites of Absolution we held a lens up to the world and the result reflects the ugliness we saw. The title track itself for instance delves into the depths of religious hypocrisy, subjugation and tyranny the world over, which we sought to simultaneously both demonstrate and subvert with the brutalised concept of the album art. In 'Consumed Existence' we gaze into the bleak future of humanity, stripping the assets and natural resources of the Earth and, if we last long enough, the universe, until there’s nothing left to consume but ourselves. 'Dreams of Hatred' chronicles the growing mass mindset of narcissism, hatred and intolerance, where despising one another is becoming the new paradigm. We even journey back to ancient Egypt in 'Crook & Flail' which shows that none of this is anything new - mankind has often been led astray into a barren wasteland of suffering and misery by those who would promise much to many but deliver only to
themselves; still we don’t learn from the failings of the past. Closing out the album we pay tribute to the late, great Chuck Shuldiner with our cover of 'Open Casket' from Death’s Leprosy album, a fitting testament to the sheer emptiness of what awaits once we depart this crumbling edifice of existence."

The album features artwork from Badic Art and is set for an independent release on 19th February 2017.

Idioteq Premiere THIS GUN FOR HIRE Video 'Barn Burner'

Debut Album 'Something A Little More Sinister' Out March 31st
       Rock tinged melodic metalcore / post hardcore Vancouverites THIS GUN FOR HIRE will be unleashing their debut album 'Something A Little More Sinister' on March 31, 2017. The band has already released singles 'Infection' and 'Good Evening Deacon' and are now ready to present the premiere of their next video 'Barn Burner' exclusively on Idioteq.com.
“You ever been to one of those parties where you feel like you’re on top of the world? Well this isn’t one of those parties. Welcome to Barn Burner! Where the drinks aren’t free and the girls ain’t pretty. Get ready for a night full of hazards, disasters, and bastards where there’s no going home! Barn Burner is This Gun for Hire‘s party jam that doesn’t let up, even for a second. Delving into the Canadian atmosphere of bush and house parties. You better dust off those dancing shoes and buckle up for a wild… ish ride. Special thanks to Kris Hellstrom for creating another awesome video for us.” the band comments.

Watch 'Barn Burner' at the following link: http://www.idioteq.com/barn-burner-groovy-melodic-metalcore-act-this-gun-for-fire-premiere-new-video/ 



THIS GUN FOR HIRE recorded 'Something A Little More Sinister' with engineer and producer Roger Swan (K-OS, Battle Axe) to present their first clutch of original songs to showcase to the world.

Out Now! Edmonton's ABSINTHE FROM SOCIETY Streaming Here Full EP 'The Angels Ignored Us'

Out Now! Edmonton's ABSINTHE FROM SOCIETY Streaming Full EP 'The Angels Ignored Us'
First launching on to the Edmonton metal scene in 2006 and releasing their debut EP 'Project Infection' in 2012, ABSINTHE FROM SOCIETY return in 2017 after a short hiatus with their next release 'The Angels Ignored Us' out now as of February 24th  



Comprised of Ian "Saint Absinthe" Harper, the founder of the band (vocals, guitar and keyboard) and Adam "The Caveman" Roberts (drums & percussion) with Lexi "Shitkicker 9000" Graham (bass & vocals), the trio combine an aggressive sound with ethereal texture. 
Their new EP 'The Angels Ignored Us' touches on emotional themes with a raw heavy backdrop.
Band founder Ian Harper comments:

"Existing fans will love it and hopefully other people who hear it for the first time will be impressed. The EP has a lot of raw sound, which was part of the goal for the EP. We didn't want anything overly produced because that seems to be the trend these days, and we feel that live music is really at the root of any musical renaissance."

Influenced by bands such as Nine Inch Nails, Jimi Hendrix, Nirvana, Marilyn Manson, System of a Down, The Tea Party and The Foo Fighters, ABSINTHE FROM SOCIETY are not trying to be innovative, but simply pushing to entertain and reach as many people as possible.

"We find our music attracts different people. We have a heavier sound, but we do have softer melodies. My lyrics are emotionally charged and give each track its own personality. In this new EP, my writings deal mainly with relationships and especially toxic ones, which I'm sure many can relate to along with feelings of frustration and anger as well as sadness. Overall, whether you're a mosher or someone who stands and grooves, we find we'll appeal to most in the metal spectrum." 

1. Hellbent (3:54)
2. A Man Possessed (4:05)
3. Never (4:49)
4. Worth It (4:04)
EP Length: 16:54

'The Angels Ignore Us' will be available on iTunesAmazon, Spotify, Bandcamp and all major online retailers as of Feb 24, 2017.


New Finnish blackened death metal band CEMETERY WINDS with SEPULCHRAL CURSE member



There's not supposed to be any PR campaign for this release but when the band told me about it, when we were talking about the band's future, I knew something had to be done. It's too good of an album to remain overlooked. So here's CEMETERY WINDS, signed to my little label for a new release, and I promise you it's going to be a good listening experience. Check out the promo that's specially uploaded on Haulix for this one. Listen to a track HERE.


 

 
CEMETERY WINDS (Finland) - 'Unholy Ascensions' (February 10th, 2017)


Genre - Blackened Death Metal
Release Date - February 10th, 2017
Record Label - Temple of Darkness Records (Italy)
For fans of - 
SEPULCHRAL CURSE, DISSECTION, SACRAMENTUM, BOLZER, TRIBULATION, AMORPHIS, GOREPHILIA, KRYPTS


Finland has more to offer in the blackened death metal realm than SEPULCHRAL CURSE, whose vocalist is a part of this recording as well. When old school death metal brutality is combined with the atmospheric elements of black metal, the result is astounding, and it's no surprise that the band is signed to Transcending Obscurity Records for their upcoming album. This one, released by Temple of Darkness Records, exemplifies the aforementioned qualities and is a magnificent, epic album with deep, haunting melodies. It's like a cross between DISSECTION and very early AMORPHIS. The more you listen to this gem, the more you get enraptured. It has this inextricable grip on you if you're able to get under its tightly woven riff structure and follow the sinuous patterns. Here's death metal that's breaking the hackneyed mould and by borrowing elements from other atmospheric styles, doing something special with it. 



Track list: 
1. Dormant Darkness
2. Realm of the Open Tombs
3. Into the Breathless Slumber
4. When Death Descends
5. Burials After Midnight
6. The Storm of Impious Wrath
7. Unholy Ascensions
8. Outro



Line up: 
J. Lukka - Drums, Guitar, additional instruments
Kari Kankaanpää - Vocals (SEPULCHRAL CURSE),
Marko Ala-Kleme - Vocals (NASHORN)
Juho Manninen - Bass (CURIMUS)

Album artwork -  Juanjo Castellano

TEMPTATION'S WINGS Streaming Concept Album 'Skulthor Ebonblade'


TEMPTATION'S WINGS Streaming Concept Album 'Skullthor Ebonblade'


Skullthor Ebonblade, the forthcoming concept album from North Carolina Doom Trio TEMPTATION'S WINGS is now streaming in its entirety, courtesy of Metal Nexus. The album will be released on March 10. Dive right in headfirst at the following link:

Pre-order Skullthor Ebonblade.

Following the release of 2012 EP Legends of the Tusk, the new full-length release is the culmination of a decade spent continually improving and refining its Thrashy Doom Metal style. The results speak for themselves, as Skulthor Ebonblade is the complete package: mighty riffs, propulsive rhythms, and emotionally penetrating vocals that hit the Heavy Metal sweet spot and leave the listener with songs that remain etched in the memory for days on end. 

Lyrically, the story of the album concerns legendary warrior Skulthor who returns to find his village burning in black flames, and catches a glimpse of a witch as she disappears behind the smoke. He sets off on a quest to obtain a sword of great power, so he can avenge his clan but loses his humanity along the way only to have to rediscover it to ultimately obtain revenge he sought all along.

Skulthor Ebonblade will be released on CD and digital formats.  The CD version will include an acoustic bonus track called "Solitude." The album was mixed, mastered, and recorded by Andy Bishop at Giraffe Studios, Hendersonville NC. Artwork By David Paul Seymour.

"Masterful in their amalgamating of doom-laden/ thrash with flavourings of old school heavy metal. It's a hugely enjoyable album."
- Über Rock

"Temptation's Wings unfurl vibrant sonic tales that blend heavy amounts of Doom, Power Metal, Progressive, Stoner Rock and Classic Metal into their own potently lethal Metal as stout as any tempered steel."
 - Metal Nexus

"A brilliant work...majestic and engaging."
 - Queens of Steel
"A really enjoyable album, loaded with epic Heavy Metal."
 - Necromance

TEMPTATION'S WINGS BIO

Hailing from the mountains of North Carolina, Temptation's Wings was formed back in 2005. After several lineup changes the core was finally established at the end 2006 and the and has been making music since ever since. The mission statement has always been the same: Write songs they like and pushing the songwriting and technique beyond the previous release . A few albums and EPs have been released over the years, but the band really hit their stride with the 2012  EP Legends of the Tusk. The band played as many shows as they could supporting the EP and relentlessly promoted it. The work paid off when the trio was asked to open for the legendary Iced Earth by a representative of that band in their hometown's biggest venue, The Orange Peel.  Now with the impending LP release of Skulthor Ebonblade and addition of new bassist Chad Barnwell, Temptation's Wings is eager to play to more ears than ever!


Brazilian Extreme Metal Kings NERVOCHAOS Return with 'Nyctophilia' in April

Brazilian Extreme Metal Kings NERVOCHAOS Return with 'Nyctophilia' in April
 

NERVOCHAOS has returned! Nyctophilia is the seventh studio album by the Brazilian extreme metal kings and will be released on April 7, 2017 through Cogumelo Records in Brazil, and Greyhaze Records in North America and Europe. A lyric video for new song "Moloch Rise" is available at this location.
Nyctophilia is an eclectic mix of all that characterizes the band, 13 new tracks of 80s-fueled blackened extreme music, executed in NERVOCHAOS' trademark raw, aggressive and organic style of Metal. Nyctophilia has a new intensity and is a step forward compared to their older releases.
For the first time, the band recorded the album outside Brazil, spending a month in Como/Italy at Alpha Omega Studio along with producer Alex Azzali, who also did mixing and mastering of the new album. It's also the first album composed and recorded with the new line-up which features Lauro 'Nightrealm' on vocal/guitar, Cherry on guitar, Thiago 'Anduscias' on bass and the only remaining original member Edu Lane on drums.
The album artwork was created by Alcides Burn, a talented Brazilian artist that worked with acts such as Blood Red Throne, Acheron, Iconoclasm, Headhunter DC and many more. Nyctophilia also features special guest vocals appearance by Sebastian L. of INTO DARKNESS and Leandro P. of R.N.S. plus one track, "Vampiric Cannibal Goddess," that features the riffs of Bolverk (RAGNAROK).
Nyctophilia surely is the best album up-to-date from NERVOCHAOS, which managed to evolve musically without losing its trademark sound.

3. Ad Majorem Satanae Gloriam
4. Season of the Witch
