Forever Still Discusses Lyrical Themes

On March 29th, Forever Still will unleash their sophomore full-length release "Breathe In Colours" via Nuclear Blast. Inspired by a dystopian cyberpunk future and the fact that some of the biggest works in that genre, Blade Runner and Akira, are set in 2019, Denmark's highflyers have adapted a dark musical concept for this record and take a look at the world being on the verge of ecological collapse, while humanity is fleeing into cyberspace to escape the horrors of the real world.

After the music video of the freshly released title track reaching over 30.000 views in only 5 days, the band unveils a third trailer, in which frontwoman Maja Shining speaks about her lyrics and continuing the journey of 'Tied Down''s protagonist on 'Breathe In Colours', where the stories circle not only about inner but also outer wars and overcoming the struggles of life.

Nibiru Reveals New Album Details

Italian doom metal outfit Nibiru has announced that they will be releasing a new album entitled, "Salbrox" through Ritual Productions this May, with a release date to be confirmed shortly.

Titled "Salbrox," meaning "Sulfur" in the Enochian language of which the band profess, the rite is a cataclysmic psychic journey of visionary magick, elemental prophecies and esoteric supernormality. Tribal percussion, evocative mantras and hypnotic drones imbued with the band's amalgamation of black metal, doom metal and psychedelic textures formulates a fascinating, idiosyncratic art. Vocals harbour a possessed and rasping quality that surely summon spectres far beyond our comprehensible realm, bringing forth a divination of the self.

Conceptually and spiritually, "Salbrox" is inspired by the continuous re-adjustment between disharmony and balance. "Salbrox" aims, via mysterious and enigmatic practices that reflect an ouroboros quality of death of rebirth, to explore the transmutation and regeneration of the human being that occurs at every level - spirit, soul and corporeality.

Battle Beast Posts New Video Online

Finnish heavy metal sextet Battle Beast will release their fifth studio album "No More Hollywood Endings," in just three weeks, on March 22, 2019 via Nuclear Blast Records. Today the band is unleashing another new track in the form of the tenacious and uplifting track "Eden." Watch the official music video for the second single, which was directed by Markus Nieminen and produced by Oy Routafilmi AB & Tuotantoyhtiö Legenda below.

Guitarist Joona Björkroth states, "'Eden' was born about one year ago when I was going through an extremely bad period in my personal life. I wrote the song as a remembrance to myself that whatever life throws at you, there's light in the end. Many bad things people have in their lives are creations of their own mind and can be mended by letting go. The song is a sincere "f*** you!" to fear, pain... whatever it is that is holding you down!" More...
