Fin'amor was founded in the fall of 2008 by guitarist Julian Chuzhik, vocalist Benjamin Meyerson, and keyboardist/bassist Nodar Khutortsov as an ambitious effort to manifest a sound inspired by the sorrow and down-tempo of doom, the atmosphere and orchestration of goth, the versatility of progressive music, and the strength and resolution of death metal.
The band is set to venture from the New York scene in the summer of 2015, beginning with the release of a debut full-length album. The album "Forbidding Mourning" explores themes of hope despite a despairing existence, the paradoxical nature of love, and the desolation of apathy.
"Forbidding Mourning" will be released on July 7th, 2015 with pre-orders now available over here. Check out the song "I Am Winter" below. The full track listing is:
1. Bleed The Oceans

The upcoming Regarde les Hommes Tomber album is now revealed to be titled "Exile," and it's time to unveil the first song and cover artwork. Learn to "Embrace The Flames" below.
This deadly mix of post-hardcore noise and black metal that is "Exile" will be released on September 19th, 2015 via LADLO Productions.
Lindemann, the new project from Rammstein's Till Lindemann alongside Pain and Hypocrisy’s Peter Tägtgren, today released the first video from debut album "Skills In Pills," due out June 23rd (Warner Bros. Records).
The video for lead single “Praise Abort” is the creation of director (and longtime Rammstein collaborator) Zoran Bihac, and showcases the song’s dark, gruesome lyrics with a little help from some swine friends. It’s a disgusting, gory, NSFW, and a perfect introduction into the Lindemann world.
Granted, it may not be "Pussy" (which is somehow still our most viewed news post EVER), but the lyrics are about as ridiculously on par. If you've heard Rammstein's attempts at English material, you about know what to expect below. More...
French trio Glowsun's third studio album "Beyond The Wall Of Time" is due out June 29th (U.K.) and July 7th (U.S.) via Napalm Records. The label comments:
"The sound and tone of the new album perfectly fits into instrumental psychedelic rock realms. From the start the listener is kidnapped by the spherical sound, between enormous atmospheric compositions with pure rock riffs and psychedelic melodies that are perfectly intertwined."
The band also just completed work on a music video for the song "Behind The Moon" - check it out in the player below. More...
California's Witchaven is currently in the studio recording the follow-up to "Blood Sacrifice," and the band has now checked in with the following update:
"The album is coming along nicely. We still have much more work to do. This one is turning out to be a real fast one..total dbeat black metal thrash at its finest. Follow us on twitter for behind the scenes photos and video at @witchaven666."
Following the crushing doom of 2014 double LP, "V," which earned a spot on Rolling Stone's 20 Best Metal Albums Of 2014, Ommadon continues its perpetual quest to achieve sonic annihilation of the self through unadulterated heaviness with "Empathy For The Wicked."
Boasting just one earth-rupturing track broken into two parts, "Empathy For The Wicked" was recorded live, mixed by Ommadon and mastered by Billy Anderson (Neurosis, Zoroaster, Eyehategod, Taurus, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth etc.), who gave it the final crushing touches it deserves.
Where Ommadon's previous scores were all recorded in the Highlands of Scotland surrounded by forest, "Empathy For The Wicked" marks the band's first release to be recorded on an industrial estate in urban Northumberland surrounded by the dregs of humanity.
The first track from "Empathy For The Wicked" was originally recorded for the cassette split with Horse Latitudes and Coltsblood. During that session, Ommadon decided to continue recording through the night and drone out the riff which became the second side to "Empathy For The Wicked."
Powerwolf is back with new album "Blessed & Possessed" (reviewed here), set to be released on July 17th via Napalm Records.
The wolves have also released the third part of "The Road To Blessed & Possessed" series giving yet another insight into the recording process. Check it out here: More...
