Unleashed Finishes New Album

Swedish Viking death metal outfit Unleashed just finished recording the follow-up to the "Odalheim" album. The title of the album is still a secret but according to Nuclear Blast, fans should be prepared for another classic record.

The forthcoming release was recorded by producer and guitar player Fredrik Folkare in his own Chrome Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. Frontman Johnny Hedlund states:

“Warriors!!! Unleashed are now done mastering and we now have the finished recording in our hands. Fredrik has once again done a tremendous job in the studio and I would say this is our best produced album to date. We are very much looking forward to the release date and to play some of the songs live.”

Nuclear Blast also comments: "With their blend of melody and brutality, Unleashed are credited as the founders of the Viking Death Metal movement from their inception back in 1989. Twenty six years later and their riffs are still pure shrapnel and their choruses just as epic - melting uncompromising brutality with anthemic odes to Odin. Unleashed's latest record 'Odalheim' was released in April 2012 via Nuclear Blast."

Magic Kindom Comments On Upcoming Album

Belgian guitarist Dushan Petrossi is not only the driving force behind AFM Records-signed Iron Mask, he is also the mastermind of power/symphonic metal band Magic Kingdom.

While Petrossi’s band Iron Mask, which came to blossom in recent years, follows a more hard rock-oriented style to combine with some neo-classical elements, Magic Kingdom is heavy and fast-paced, but not a single bit less enchanting and catchy.

New album "Savage Requiem" again delivers 100% what fans expect from Magic Kingdom and features new vocalist Christian Palin (ex-Adagio) with a passionate and powerful performance. "I love Christian’s style of singing,” Petrossi says. “He always gives 100% and doesn’t hold back. I feel that the new songs needed someone like Christian to come alive. We are very glad that he is a part of Magic Kingdom now."

“I’m sure that we can release new Magic Kingdom albums more regularly from now on,” Petrossi speaks out in the run-up to "Savage Requiem," adding, “I’m very proud of what we created and I wish that our fans will have an equal kind of joy when they listen to the album.”

01. In Umbra Mea
02. Guardian Angels
03. Rivals Forever
04. Full Moon Sacrifice
05. Ship Of Ghosts
06. Savage Requiem
07. Four Demon Kings Of Shadowlands
08. With Fire And Sword

Korpiklaani Announces "Noita" Release

Finnish folk metal outfit Korpiklaani is pleased to announce the band has inked a new deal with Nuclear Blast for the release of upcoming album "Noita," which is set for a release in May of 2015. "Noita" follows the 2012 album "Manala" (reviewed here).

"Noita" was recorded at Petrax Studio with Aksu Hanttu handling production, recording, and mixing again. It will also be the first album to feature new accordion player Sami Perttula, who has been playing a very active role in the folk arrangements along with Fiddler Tuomas Rounakari.

Commented bassplayer Jarkko Aaltonen: “'Noita' in the traditional Finnish meaning is different than what people associate it with nowadays. 'Noita' is a person with wider knowledge and understanding of the nature and who also was believed to possess paranormal or unnatural abilities. These people were often also referred to as 'Tietäjä,' that exactly means someone with wider knowledge and understanding of pretty much everything. Native American medicine man is pretty much the same thing or actually all the different types of Shamans of the primitive peoples are the same thing. 'Noita' is someone that you turn to when you need help of some kind. Finnish 'Noita' had the ability to heal, just like their North American counterparts.

"They were very respected members of the society. Only later Christianity changed the word to mean something negative since those people were considered rivals by the church. Even in Finland this turned into a Witchhunt (=noitavaino) every now and then. Anyway, most people using Google Translate or similar will find the word 'Witch' and will probably get a bit wrong idea of the meaning, since most will probably connect it with the black sabbaths, devil marks, and such, when a way more correct translation would probably be medicine man or Shaman.”

New accordionist Sami Perttula comments: “Previously the Korpiklaani albums were played with a piano-accordion and now I play with a traditional button-accordion which was more widely used in Finland anyways. In the arrangements you can hear more tonal harmonies and folky accompaniments combined to the power-chords than before. It actually boosts up the uplifting feel of our music.” More...

Wovoka Signs With Battleground

Battleground Records has added the Southern California-based sludge act Wovoka to its roster, and the band's debut album, "Saros," will be available April 14th on CD/DD. A teaser video can be seen below. Battlegrounds Records also comments:

"Formed circa January 2013 among the monolithic concrete sprawl of the greater Los Angeles area, the post-metal quartet Wovoka have been developing a sound that speaks to the ear with a wide range of robust dynamics, fragile melodies, and measured surges of psychedelic color.

"The music is conceptual and delves deep into the many contrasting elements of human thought and belief, but it is not a sermon for or against anything, rather it is a study of what makes us tick and develop the ideas that we do. As to how Wovoka themselves perceive this great mystery, there are fragments and clues to be found within the songs, lyrics, and artwork of their upcoming debut album.

"The panoramic scope of the story is too big to be written in stone or sky, so it must be absorbed and imprinted upon the mind’s eye of each listener. Wovoka only hopes to open the door and to unveil those possibilities and points of view beyond the narrow sight of thinking oneself to be the center of the universe."

Wovoka is:

Eric Kniss - Guitar & Vocals
Rashid Nadjib - Bass
Cody Schnieders - Guitar & Vocals
Troy Schoenbaum - Drums More...

Ferium Posts Studio Update On New Album

Israeli metal outfit Ferium are hard at work in the studio working on their upcoming concept album, "Behind the Black Eyes." Video footage from the recording sessions can be viewed below.

"Behind The Black Eyes" greatly expands the concept first introduced on the band's debut album "Reflections." The connection between the two albums is evident in part by the inclusion of a new track titled "Reflections," while the debut album contained the song "The Black Eyes." "Behind The Black Eyes" is the story of one man's deteriorating relationship from beginning to end; from promising beginnings to the bitter end. Musically, "Behind the Black Eyes" raises the intensity level and deepens the impact with powerful riffs and melodic atmospheric parts, ensuring that nary a listener is left unaffected by the experience. The album will once again be produced and recorded by guitarist Boxer at his very own Boxer Studio.

Lo! Posts New Music Video "Orca"

After their critically acclaimed debut album Look and Behold (2011) and follow-up Monstrorum Historia (2013), the metallers of Lo!, hailing from Sydney, Australia, are back with a new EP: The Tongueless.

2014 was a big year for Lo! In Australia: the band supported Trivium, In Flames, Corrosion Of Conformity and Torche, to name a few. Besides the massive live presence on their continent, Lo started working on new material, immediately after the departure of former vocalist Jamie-Leigh Smith in late 2013.

”Stylistically I aimed for a harsher, more venomous tone as Lo!'s voice”, says new vocalist Sam Dillon. “Lyrically I was looking towards themes of extinction and mankind's extreme ignorance towards creatures. The track 'Orca' was inspired by the 'Blackfish' documentary highlighting the history of killer whales in captivity.” More...
