THE FACELESS DIVINE

Band:TOTENGEFLUSTER
Album:THE FACELESS DIVINE
Label:BLACK LION RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:Black Metal

The unfolding eleven songs leads you through 50 Minutes of intense darkness and coldness that Totengeflüster is well known for. The whole album is produced completely by the band from the recording process till the artwork, the band took everything on their own hands. “We work hard to realize this album and give you the strongest Totengeflüster music we can deliver!” The Faceless Divine will definitely elevate Totengeflüster to a new level. The Album promises to be Darker and colder, faster and harder, more epic and still balanced. The Faceless Divine is exactly this, when compared to our previous albums. With our new album we do not change our style, we enhance it. We keep our unique sound using orchestral elements, precise rhythms, fleshed out guitars and of course the unique sound of our Singer to build unique atmospheres. The Songs reach from fast and knife cutting harsh songs to midtempo based hymns circling around our individual expression of emotions. For Totleben (Songwriter, Composer, Graphic and Video Artist) and Narbengrund (Singer & Lyrics) this album feels like a personal diary bursting out of its emotions. Like life, the songs contain ups and downs, surprises, drama, joy, brutality and last but not least balance. We have grown a lot over the past years and took all our collected experience into this album. For the first time the entire Album is produced by us. We are looking forward and feel thrilled to unleash it upon you.

VOICES FOM THE DUST

Band:RISEN PROPHECY
Album:VOICES FOM THE DUST
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/THRASH POWER METAL

The latest offering of RISEN PROPHECY is a superbly crafted concept album that redefines epicness. This British band have always straddled a fine line between thrash and US style power metal, yet "Voices from the Dust" unites both sides of their respective influences and goes further. Bringing more extremity to their overall sound, there is also a stronger sense of melody within their songwriting. You will find here a wealth of brutal, crushingly heavy riffs, punishing rhythm section with some blistering blastbeats and truly inspired solos and interludes. Last but definitely not least, there are the commanding vocals with a theatrical flair, mostly deep and manly, but also some impressive high pitched ones, often supported by choirs. The lyrics tell a story of a traveller who finds himself upon a scorched plain where all he can see is destruction and smoke and is enabled to travel back through time to witness the cause of the conflagrated desolation. This monumental sounding album is something all fans of ICED EARTH, UNEARTHED (FL, USA), SINDROME, SABBAT (UK), ARTILLERY, TESTAMENT, DEMONS & WIZARDS, FALCONER and FORBIDDEN should love.

 

 

SAVAGE OVERKILL

Band:KOMMAND
Album:SAVAGE OVERKILL
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/BLACK/THRASH

Sometimes it's enough to look at the cover art, logo and band photo to know exactly what to expect. Add to this an album title like "Savage Overkill" and all is perfectly clear. KÖMMAND from Seattle play raw and uncompromising black/thrash in the old ways - the only right ways. The constant onslaught of atonal riffs and real drums is what it's all about. Awesomely ugly, gritty and snotty vocals interspersed with eardrums-piercing speed metal screams and just enough of "UGHs" are guaranteed to make any real old school metalhead grin in delight. The attitude seeps and pure filth spreads around with every note on this album. It's bound to rip some heads off and send wimps home crying! These US kömmandos stand for stubborn, ancient sounds and keeping metal dangerous and unwanted, just as it was meant to be, while sending a big "fuck off" to all the safe and sterile bands out there. They worship at the altar of DARKTHRONE, BATHORY, AURA NOIR, INFERNÖ, BEWITCHED and NOCTURNAL BREED, being boozebrothers in arms with BARBARIAN, BUNKER 66, SARKE, RUST, OMEGA and the like.

 

 

THE UNKNOWN WANTS YOU DEAD!

Band:SPACE GOD RITUAL
Album:THE UNKNOWN WANTS YOU DEAD!
Label:METAL ON METAL
Format:CD
Genre:METAL/DOOM METAL

Enthusiasts of all things doomy, weird and Lovecraftian... rejoice! The new album from Portland, Oregon's Victorian cultists SPACE GOD RITUAL is the perfect offering to the Ancient Ones, and they are pleased! "The Unknown Wants You Dead!" sees the trio take their proto-doom style and bring it to a whole new level of theatricality and heaviness. Their sound is familiar, but also very different mostly thanks to the orchestrations that wouldn't be out of place on an old horror movie soundtrack, courtesy of the band's sole instrumentalist, Mr Glamour. The vocals also contribute to their eerie and unique style. The main vocalist, Olaff, has a classic heavy metal voice, yet sounds quite quirky, often resembling Simon from ARKHAM WITCH, while second vocalist, known only as The Owl, is responsible for orations and sounds completely demented. They tell their eldritch tales of the macabre in a vaudevillian style. It's a real treat for all those who love their doom with a twist and with a ghoulish atmosphere. Fans of THE LAMP OF THOTH, ARKHAM WITCH, PENTAGRAM, BLACK SABBATH, HELL, LUCIFER'S FALL or BRITON RITES can't go wrong with it.
