The Ajna Offensive today announces May 27th as the North American release date for Funereal Presence's debut album, "The Archer Takes Aim."
Following an obscure self-titled 10” released in 2011, Funeral Presence's "The Archer Takes Aim" promises to hold firm to the concept of less is more, that staying firmly rooted in one lineage is not a wrong: an album that is not trying to convert anyone or change minds.
Conceived, bred, and nurtured in darkness, the album consists of grotesque, strong-willed, and ugly black metal from a band that revives the atmosphere & attitude of a long-gone but defining era of the genre. The track listing is as follows:
1. The Tower Falls
2. Gestalt Des Endes
3. The Archer Takes Aim
4. Dämmerlicht More...

Elvenking is set to drop new album "The Pagan Manifesto" this coming May 9th via AFM Records, but ahead of the full album will be a digital single titled "Elvenlegions."
Austrian blackened death metal outfit Belphegor has announced that the title of their forthcoming tenth studio album will be, "Conjuring the Dead" and that it will hit the shelves on August 8th in most of Europe, with a UK and French release of August 11th to follow. A North American release date has not yet been confirmed, though it would likely be around August 12th. The album was produced by Erik Rutan and will be released through Nuclear Blast.
Speaking about the album, frontman Helmuth stated: "The tenth full-length entitled Conjuring The Dead is tracked. For over two years we worked on the nine compositions. We got every arrangement to the highest audio potential, added a lot of new, haunting, and compelling structures/ rhythm parts and tritone intervals. We decided to record in the USA this time. The combination of European metal's cold and sick elements crossed with an American brutal sound was the master plan. We're on fire! Expect more shredding, more magick, more of everything."
Fan filmed footage of American metal stars Metallica performing a new song entitled, "Lords of Summer" live in Bogota, Colombia has been posted online and is available to watch below. It is not yet known whether or not the song will appear on the band's next studio album, which they are rumoured to be recording sometime later this year, or if it is still a work in progress, but details will be revealed as soon as they become available.
