On August 30th, Metal on Metal Records will release the 3rd studio album of Nomad Son, the traditional doom metal band from Malta formed in 2006 by Albert Bell of Forsaken.
"The Darkening" brings high-octane doom metal combined with '70s hard rock and classic heavy metal. The label states: "Those who associate doom only with slow tempos may be in for a surprise a few times listening to this album. But those who are familiar with the band know what they can expect: recognizable style with versatility of moods and tempos, unique vocals and ominous soundscapes created by Hammonds."
Three songs off the album, "The Devil's Banquet," "The Darkening," and "Descent to Hell" are available for streaming at the Metal on Metal Records website.
The artwork was painted by Jowita Kaminska-Peruzzi (who's also the author of the previous covers from Nomad Son, Attacker, Exodus, Witchburner, Forsaken, Meliah Rage, Manilla Road, Deceased, Arkham Witch and others). The album's track listing is:
1. Light Bearer

4. Only the Scars
5. Descent to Hell
6. The Darkening
8. The Orphaned Crown

German doom metal magazine Doom Metal Front, now on its tenth print issue as well, is streaming the newest and eighth of its renowned compilations. The anthology, titled "Tears from the Mediterranean," features 50 bands from southern European countries and Mediterranean island nations such as Malta. You may also stream the previous five compilations on that page and listen to the full tome below.
Doom Metal Front is an independent, bilingual (German/English), printed and digital paper spreading the doom over the world. They prefer sluggish riffing, slow rocking and experimental droning stuff, because they are 'born too late.' They ascribe to the belief that 'if you think this music is kind of paralyzing, then you are definitely too fast.'
