Painted Black Signs With Wormholedeath

Wormholedeath Records is proud to announce that Portuguese dark metal combo Painted Black has signed a distribution deal for the worldwide release of the album "Raging Light." The album will be available on all digital shops on October 6th. The physical and Japanese release dates are still TBA.

Band Statement: "We're very thrilled to work together with the team at WormHoleDeath who have been very passionate with our music since day one! It’s a great feeling to know that with this record we can finally reach a wider audience thanks to the promotion and distribution network of the label, and have 'Raging Light' available in its physical format all around Europe, the United States and Japan!"

Doom Metal Front Streaming New Compilation

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.'
