NADJA's Europe Tour, Fall 2008 (some dates to be confirmed): More...
WINTERFYLLETH has completed the recording of their debut album "The Ghost Of Heritage."
Formed with the intention to honour England’s ancestral Anglo-Saxon past, Winterfylleth (comprised of members culled from the UK’s most devastating doom contingent ATAVIST and likeminded UK comrades WODENSTHRONE) have set a solidified mission statement to bring awareness of England’s historical roots through their folk-influenced vitriolic black metal.
Coining the term English Heritage Black Metal (EHBM), Winterfylleth (which translates into Winter Full Moon in the olde English language) represents the month of October (hence the coinciding release date) and also represents the Anglo-Saxon festival of the arrival of winter. With their "Rise Of The Winter Full Moon" demo, which was done in a very limited run but generated quite a reputable response, said demo displayed a fierce focused vision on what Winterfylleth wants to achieve through their music. And with their "Ghost Of Heritage" debut, this vision becomes even more solidified and fleshed out.
"The Ghost Of Heritage" was mastered by Colin Marston of BEHOLD… THE ARCTOPUS, KRALLICE, DYSRHYTHMIA fame and is set for a mid-October 2008 release. The tracklisting is as follows: More...
The release date has been set for UK extreme doom metal band ATAVIST's latest album, "II:Ruined." The album will be released on September 4 in the US and September 1 in the UK. This is pushed back from a previously announced July release.
As previously reported, the tracklisting for "II:Ruined" is as follows:
The tracklisting for “II:Ruined” is as follows:
1. I (3:04)
2. II (15:19)
3. III (17:40)
4. IV (7:05)
5. V (16:52)
6. VI (6:23)
7. I Hate The Human Race (Grief Cover)
Profound Lore Records has posted an MP3 excerpt of the track "III" from the upcoming UK extreme doom metal band ATAVIST album "II:Ruined." The full song exceeds 17-minutes.
After a few mastering delays, UK based blackened sludge doom metalers, ATAVIST, have finished laying down the final touches that will define on what will go down as one of the most memorable and extreme doom metal albums to be released this year.
Entitled “II:Ruined”, this beast of Manchester have created an incredible work that will undoubtedly go down as a classic within the annals of this genre. Much like the impact bands like CORRPUTED made with their “El Mundo Frio” album, what KHANATE have done with their self-titled debut, IRON MONKEY with their “Our Problem” masterpiece, or the influential impact that BURNING WITCH had with “Crippled Lucifer”, Atavist are pretty much set to lay waste within the doom metal scene, and carve a new niche while doing so. “II:Ruined” also features guest appearances by UK folk singer Rose Kemp and ex-Iron Monkey/current-day Crippled Black Phoenix guitarist Justin Greaves. The PFL version will also feature a bonus track, namely a Grief cover of ‘I Hate The Human Race’. More...
