Over The Voids Details New Album

Known for his works in Medico Peste, Owls Woods Graves as well as live basist of Mgla – sole member The Fall presents his solo project Over the Voids. The debut self-titled album will be available on November 17th via Nordvis Produktion. Pre-orders can be made over here. Check out the first single "Never Again Will They Hunger" in the player at the bottom.

Over The Voids was founded on one man’s vision of a mid-nineties black metal revival. However, this work of art far transcends simple nostalgia or tributes paid to ages past; while many bands are content with leading an existence as living homages to other people’s innovations, this solo project has an entirely different intensity to its artistic fire. The musical and lyrical aspects along with their aesthetic representation are forged in synergy to ponder the riddles of mortality.

Commanding the centre of attention is the distinctly mixed twin-guitars, acting much like a conductor’s baton as they dictate where to bring the music and its accompanying mood. The melodies are the focal point, merging the icy darkness of Transylvanian Hunger with the dreamy woodland landscapes of Bergtatt. Despite the catchy melodies, Over The Voids is more the type of music to which one would drift on some flight of the mind, rather than bang one’s head.

The track listing is:

1. Battle of Heaven
2. Ghosts Lay Eggs
3. Prophet of the Winter
4. Never Again Will They Hunger More...

The Killerhertz Detail New Album

Danish modern hard rock act The Killerhertz will release the second album "A Mirror's Portrait" on November 17th via Dr. Music Records, distributed internationally by Soulfood.

"A Mirror's Portrait" is once again produced by Flemming Rasmussen (Metallica, Rainbow, Blind Guardian). It will appear to fans of both traditional and modern hard rock.

Three years after the debut album "A Killer Anthem," the Kastrup natives have once again entrenched themselves in the Earplug Studio and recorded a sparkling follow-up with ”A Mirror’s Portrait." Led by singer and guitarist Thomas Trold, the band, founded in 2011, has once again produced a strong hard 'n' heavy album, which bridges the gap between the 80s and 90s heavy metal scene that takes influences from both Metallica or Megadeth and modern hard rock and adds a pinch of Danish rock à la Pretty Maids. Check out the music video for the song ”Teenage Rebellion" in the player at the bottom. The clip was directed by Jan Klausen. More...

Raspail Begins Writing New Album

Italy's mysterious act Raspail has officially started writing the highly anticipated second full-length album.

The debut album "Dirge" was released through the German label Sick Man Getting Sick Records in 2016 and received very good feedback from around the world.

Featuring ex and current members of Rome's veteran bands such as Klimt 1918, Novembre and Room With A View, Raspail has initially named early Katatonia, Paradise Lost and October Tide as main influences, but the harsh yet eerie sound filled with drone, post rock and nu-gaze vibes has invited critics to draw comparisons with such acts as Earth, Nadja and Bell Witch.

It will not take Raspail long to capture your interest, but with each new spin "Dirge" will reveal new details that make their discovery worthwhile.

The band is also contemplating the possibility of playing a few selected live shows in 2018. Interested parties are welcome to get in touch with the band via their official channels. More...

Handing Garden Issues "Hearthfire" Video Clip

Hanging Garden posted a music video for the new song "Hearthfire," the latest single from the new album "I Am Become," which drops on October 27th via Lifeforce Records. The song features Amorphis vocalist Tomi Joutsen.

"Hearthfire had a strong visual impact for me, and I started creating the idea for the video from the music. Most of the video has been filmed for 8mm with a camera from 1967 and film hand processed. Making the video was a great opportunity to combine new and old technics with a symbolic story and atmosphere to support." comments Julia Alakulju.

“I Am Become” sounds familiar on the one and surprising, yet challenging on the other hand. Again there are well-known guest-vocalists to find on the record - such as Tomi Joutsen (Amorphis) or Niko Kalliojärvi (Amoral, Humavoid).

The band's fifth full-length album "I am Become" focuses thematically on an inexorable aspect of life – as well as it’s antonym: death. The approach to the theme is personal - the feelings of loss, yearning, and cherishing the deeds and words of those no longer here. The songs contain epitaphs and obituaries in the band’s native tongue, to keep the full meaning and connotations of the words intact. The powerful voices of familiar guests vocalists from bands such as Amorphis and Amoral can also be heard on the album, adding to its dark and compelling atmosphere. More...

Cattle Decapitation: European Tour Documentary

Cattle Decapitation has shared a new documentary filmed during the band's European touring this past summer. Guitarist Josh Elmore had the following to say of it:

"For several years now, fans have been asking the band to release a video chronicle with live performance footage and enhanced or ‘behind the scenes’ documentation. During a recent European run, our friend Paul McGuire of Obscenery Films traveled with the band and captured glimpses of what day-to-day life on the road is like for Cattle Decapitation and spoke with the members as they reflected on years of touring and what their future holds. The result is an entertaining, humorous and informative documentary that shows the band as a live entity and also what goes on during their down time on tour; play-throughs, interviews, concert chaos, Euro-tourism and more. We hope you enjoy it!”

The band is currently out on the road now on a North American tour with Revocation, Full Of Hell and more: More...
