Rapheumets Well Streams Full New Album

Rapheumets Well is gearing up to drop sophomore release "The Exile" on March 18th, 2016 via Test Your Metal Records. Today the band offers a full album stream, which can be heard below courtesy of the excellent NefariousRealm.com.

Drummer Joshua Ward comments on the album: "Our album 'The Exile' we felt was a alluring story following our release of 'Dimensions' due to its more personal nature. The story, while taking place on a distant planet follows the journey of Darmak Ildna, a military commander from the Sunak Empire. A malevolent deity of a sorts lands on the planet and enforces his mandate. We wrote this album to reflect this journey.

"From flesh eating gates and alien invasions to time and space being ripped and the protagonist getting his skin peeled from his bones, it needed a amalgamation of brutal riffing with cosmic soundscapes to portray this. We were able to record and master this ourselves so we are very happy with all the work we have done. Thanks to Test Your Metal Records, we have a medium to share our creation."

If you missed it, Rapheumets Well also gave us one hell of an entertaining Pit Story recently - check it out here. More...

Infernal Tenebra Releases New Music Video

The Croatian melodic death metallers from Infernal Tenebra have released a new music video for the song "The Seventh Seal."

This is the first track off the album "As Nations Fall," out now via Massacre Records. Directed and brought to life by Meisterwerk Productions and inspired by the album’s Gustavo Sazes-created artwork, the song features a ferocious sound crafted by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.

Director Igor Malecic comments: "After shooting at ten locations, five months of post-production and countless sleepless hours editing and rendering, the new video for the Croatian metal titans Infernal Tenebra, is here! The idea for the video was inspired by the cover artwork of the album, Plato's cave and Orwell, with addition of the Cold War Doomsday Clock underlined by the biblical story of the opening of the seventh seal."
