MORSUS

Band:ARROGANZ
Album:MORSUS
Label:SUPREME CHAOS RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:Death Metal

ARROGANZ is raging honesty. Real despair. True anger. An attitude beyond "fuck off". A pure will for freedom with its own style and sound - being 100% heavy metal and not giving a shit about any clichés at the same time. Straightforward death metal with cold black metal parts and obscure doom passages are their trademark. ARROGANZ really stand for their own.

UMBRA

Band:FORLORN WORLD
Album:UMBRA
Label:HOSTILE MEDIA
Format:CD
Genre:Metal

Forlorn World was formed in July 2019 by frontman and founding member of Bloodshot Dawn, Josh McMorran, with the intention of weaving an epic narrative plot together. With music using soaring guitar melody whilst mixing clean and harsh vocals Josh set out to create something fresh and unique within his spectrum of creativity. This new-found escape gave Josh the ultimate platform to explore new realms within his musical repertoire, daring to traverse paths previously untouched, which a main musical outlet such as Bloodshot Dawn would naturally avoid due to a certain weight of expectation. Forlorn World is a narrative backdrop, the story of a man forced to take a dark path, finding revenge and redemption. The epilogue of a great saga in a fictional universe, based on the world we live in and trials we all face together. The album entitled, ‘Umbra’ (meaning “shadow” in Latin) is a solo project comprised of 7 new melodic death metal songs written, recorded and mixed by the man himself, Josh McMorran with mastering and additional mixing coming from acclaimed record producer Jacob Hansen of Hansen Studios (Aborted, Extol, Amaranthe). The album includes guest solos and vocals from Francesco Paoli (Fleshgod Apocalypse), Morgan Reid, Yo Oniytan and many more, with bass duties covered by Giacomo Gastaldi (Bloodshot Dawn, Darkend).

 

 

GLORIFICATION SERMONS

Band:KOSMOVOROUS
Album:GLORIFICATION SERMONS
Label:I VOIDHANGER
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

Founded in 2013 by S. (bass) and Antinomos (guitars), with Valkenstijn (MOSAIC, NACHTMYSTIUM, SUN OF THE SLEEPLESS) joining on lead vocals two years later, KOSMOVOROUS is a mysterious black metal entity born to exalt the Ophidian ways of the pneuma. The band's debut EP, “Glorification Sermons” is a relentless and brutal assault on the senses. The work is comprised by two long and complex compositions, two majestic psalms that flay our skins with merciless lashes of utter black metal violence, before soothing our wounds with painful melodies poised between melancholy and rage. The chemistry between Antinomos and S. is total, with guitars and bass intertwined into some of the most epic and darkest black metal arrangements of the last few years. KOSMOVOROUS' devastating wall of sound takes the breath away; and yet, the spiritually elevating power of “Glorification Sermons” is undeniable, with Valkenstijn's heartfelt, tortured vocals adding depth and drama to a picture already orientated towards great sceneries of sufferance and retribution. A debut that will surely be talked about.

 

 

RESONANT ECHOES FROM COSMOS OF OLD

Band:PROMETHEUS
Album:RESONANT ECHOES FROM COSMOS OF OLD
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

After a couple of demos and a promising debut (“Consumed in Flames”, 2017), Greece's PROMETHEUS are back with their sophomore full-length album, “Resonant Echoes From Cosmos Of Old”, which expands and perfects the material of “Astrophobos”, an early 2020 digital EP. Carrying the heritage of both Hellenic and Scandinavian black metal (from VARATHRON and ROTTING CHRIST to EMPEROR and SETHERIAL), PROMETHEUS do not disdain to combine it with the esoteric death metal of MORBID ANGEL and early ABSU, among the others. “Resonant Echoes From Cosmos Of Old” is channeled in the esoteric and mystical currents of black metal, with much more emphasis on darkness than in past works thanks to a pervasive – yet never overindulgent – symphonic feel that makes PROMETHEUS' music even more majestic and wrapping.

 

 

MUTATIS MUTANDIS

Band:KEVEL
Album:MUTATIS MUTANDIS
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CDD
Genre:Black Metal

Located in Athens, Greece, KEVEL create unconventional yet coherent sonic boulders, extending away from the specific rules and stylistic barriers of the many metal sub-genres. If the 2014 self-released debut of “Hz of the Unheard” was mainly an instrumental album of progressive sludge, “Mutatis Mutandis” explores other musical paths, combining black metal, post-metal, progressive elements and spacey soundscapes, for the first time also adding vocals and synths to the band's formula. KEVEL's music embraces the listeners with deep, enveloping atmospheres; then it slowly crushes them by inducing a dark and deadly trance thanks to stratified sounds and hypnotic, cold melodies. All the songs are geometrically built on the perfect interlocking of ultra-heavy riffs, hammering rhythms and oppressing vocals that create majestic mantras of desolation, alienation and pain. The pain of living in a vast, indifferent and inhospitable universe, without a purpose or a reason to be.

 

 

THEOSULPHUROS

Band:PRECARIA AND OROS KAU
Album:THEOSULPHUROS
Label:I, VOIDHANGER RECORDS
Format:CD
Genre:ESOTERIC BLACK METAL

Two years after the release of “Metamorphosphoros”, PRECARIA returns with “Theosulphuros”, the second and final part of a diptych of split albums dedicated to the concept of “Theion”, the divine fire which transforms those who seek true light through darkness. Accompanying the Mexican black metal band in its spiritual voyage there's ÔROS KAÙ, a mysterious one-man project from Belgium which has recently signed with I, Voidhanger Records after a noteworthy 2020 debut. The world “Theion” translates from ancient Greek as both "sulphur" and "divine fire", and finds a precise depiction in Elijah Tamu's sumptuous cover painting (a continuation of the “Metamorphosphoros” original art), developed from an idea of PRECARIA's Hermit and featuring a female figure suspended upside down. “The figure represents the human soul in the process of death, transitioning into a greater realm of existence,” explains Tamu, a devout Christian who explores the boundaries between light and darkness not only through his paintings, but also with his own black metal band, PANEGYRIST. “The fiery wings indicate the fiery principle whose source is God,” the artist continues, “a force that destroys illusions and false aspects of the self, while refining and revitalizing the deeper essence of ourselves.”

 

 

WATCH THE SKIES

Band:SPACE CHASER
Album:WATCH THE SKIES
Label:THIS CHARMING MAN RECORDS
Format:LP
Genre:80S THRASH METAL

REPRESSED on green marbled wax. This rat pack from berlin will blow your mind. think of hi-tops, beer & thrashing! you haven’t been caught headbangin’ lately? well, turn on your stereo and pump the volume: Space Chaser will get the job done. this reminds me of my late 80s going skateboarding with D.R.I. on my walkmen. absolutely pure 80s thrash metal like old Agent Steel – a fast, ripping & in your face old school attack. this guys live the metal lifestyle, no fake and no bullshit!“From time to time modern day metal bands decide to keep the traditions alive, Space Chaser are no exception. The Thrash Metal quintet from Berlin release their premier demo and promo this year and as such show excellency right from the first riff, this is 80′s style Thrash Metal in the vein of Anthrax and Metallica mostly, with the classic and easily detectable riffs and signature drumming as the backdrop, Space Chaser are nowhere near the Teutonic Thrash Metal style that has plagued the German metal scene for years. As long as they keep this up, they could make a name for themselves in the European metal scenes, you won’t need a time travel machine to see 80′s Thrash Metal, let the Space Chaser get it for you.” Rhys Stevenson, GlobalMetalApocalypse
