Dys Inbunden Streams New single "Riders Of Malign"

Swedish black metal act Dys Inbunden is proud to reveal the new single "Riders of Malign," streaming in the player below. This is the first sneak peek of new material from the upcoming new full length album.

"Riders of Malign" was recorded at Endarker Studio with Magnus ‘Devo’ Andersson (Marduk) in October 2016. The hymn is dedicated to the titanic fire-bearer Azazel and the bloodline of Cain. It serves as a war anthem for the formless forces of death and gives the listener not only a taste of what to expect from the next opus, but also an insight into the band's satanic doctrine.

The band hopes that: "This new song will curse the non-worthy listeners and bless those who are of the same bloodline as us. Those who walk the left hand path of gnosis and who have respect for what our art is trying to accomplish. Hail Azazel! Hail the bloodline! Hail Satan!"

Heaven's Decay Announces Debut Release

Chaos Records will release the debut album from Heaven's Decay, "The Great Void of Mystery," on December 12th. Led by Julio Viterbo (Tormentor, Shub Niggurath, Cenotaph, The Chasm), the music is primarily NWOBHM-inspired metal infused with the range of influences from Viterbo's impressive career as a musician.

After a long and illustrious career in death metal as a guitarist in the aforementioned bands, Viterbo decided to reconnect with the heavy metal that enveloped him as a youth and gave meaning to his life. The groundwork was laid in August 2013 when Viterbo participated in the recording of Acerus debut album "The Unreachable Salvation," a traditional metal album for which he composed half the songs. The work was a turning point in his career as a guitarist, allowing Viterbo to explore new sounds and expand his compositional scope.

The result was the launch of Heaven's Decay in 2015. After composing several songs, Viterbo invited Oscar Clorio (Damned Cross, Cenotaph, Shub Niggurath, Denial) to join him on the journey as drummer, The pair then recruited Nick Hernandez (Stone Magnum) as vocalist. The songs were completed via the internet, as Oscar lives in Mexico City, while Julio and Nick call Chicago home.

Finally in July 2016, Heaven's Decay recorded "The Great Void Of Mystery" in Chicago's Minbal Studios. The album was engineered by Matt Russell and mastered by Dan Swanö in Unisound studios in Sweden. Chaos Records will release the album on CD and digital formats. The band is already working on new material for the next installment of heavy metal fury.

The artwork for "The Great Void of Mystery" was created by Arturo Vargas (Zombirefication) at Souls Crematorium Art Studio. The track listing is as follows:

1. Intro
2. Born in Fire
3. Where the Ravens Fly Free
4. Thunder of the Guns
5. Ritual Site
6. Witches Pray
7. Reaper in Wait
8. The Exile
9. Endless Fire More...
