Austrian thrash/death metal outfit Darkfall is streaming its entire 1998 debut EP "Winter Leaves" on YouTube.
Check out now and enjoy this piece of Austrian old school metal history below.
Industrial doom outfit Crown will be playing at this year's edition of the Kaltenbach Open Air Festival (replacing the black metalers of Hellsaw who recently called it quits). Hailing from France, Crown (not to be confused with The Crown) consists of two men and a machine who tune their neutron guitars to the Richter scale, and deliver the sound of a molten universe collapsing.
The Kaltenbach Open Air is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and deploying following bands among many others: Marduk, Dark Funeral, Agalloch, Krisiun, Anaal Nathrakh, Rotting Christ, God Dethroned, Valkyrja, Benighted, Thulcandra, Darkfall. Tickets and all informations about the festival can be found HERE .
Whenever I meet people from outside Austria and we get to talk about Austrian metal bands it is a safe bet that people will come up with death metal veterans like Pungent Stench and Miasma - who both sadly enough are no longer active in their original line ups. Last not least of course the Austrian blackened death metal juggernaut Belphegor will always get a mention.
Today it's time to take a closer look at that country's secret Austrian metal underground capital, the city of Graz, for a threesome of Austria's best you probably never heard of but are sure worth listening to. Read on to discover three bands that all go in different directions while remaining inside the realm of melodic death and thrash metal: the modern melodic death metal outfit Disfigured Divinity, progressive melodic metal group Rest In Fear, and melodic death thrash band veterans Darkfall.
The melodic death metallers are offering songs rich in variety and composed of a well-made mix of catchy choruses and violent galopping mosh parts.
The band dropped their debut album "Zapotectron" in 2013, which can be bought at BigCartel, iTunes and Amazon-Mp3. Two clips for their songs "Mandatory Heirs" and "Insignificance In Space And Time" can be streamed below.
Austria's Darkfall has posted a live video online for the song "The Gods Await," which can be viewed below and comes from the "Road To Redemption" album.
The live footage was filmed at Graz Explosiv on 05/25/2013. For more info on Darkfall, head over to the band's Facebook profile here.
