Marianas Rest Debuts New Music Video

This Friday, March 24, 2023, melodic death doom collective Marianas Rest will celebrate the release of their fourth studio album, entitled "Auer," via Napalm Records.

Hailing from the coastal town of Kotka, Marianas Rest embodies the Finnish melancholy and sadness of a cold, harsh winter landscape in absolute grandeur. Formed in 2013, the band around Jaakko Mäntymaa on vocals and Omnium Gatherum‘s Aapo Koivisto (keys) took the heavy music scene by storm with the release of their impressive 2016 debut, "Horror Vacui." Just in time to celebrate their 10th band anniversary, Marianas Rest unleashes their fourth studio epos, which couldn't be more multifaceted.

But give ear, following previously-released album tracks "Diseased" and the haunting "Sirens," featuring My Dying Bride's frontman Aaron Stainthorpe on guest vocals, today, Marianas Rest have unleashed a music video for their final single, the colossal "Light Reveals Our Wounds!"

"The world needs martyrs. This song is dedicated to those who ever tried to steer the course of humanity for the better knowing their actions came with a terrible cost. To everyone who had the strength to march against the coming storm." Vocalist Jaakko Mäntymaa comments.

"The idea of this song was to have a simple melodic theme and just let it play through the whole song. It repeats and repeats, changes shape and transforms but it never goes away. Like painful memories." More...

Immortal To Release New Album In May

Immortal has completed work on their upcoming new studio album, War Against All, due to be released on May 26th via Nuclear Blast Records. The band’s 10th studio album will feature 8 new songs in the classic, frostbitten Immortal style. Today, Immortal releases their first song, the album title track "War Against All," delivering just what fans have been waiting for - classic Immortal Blashyrkh metal!

The band's founder Demonaz stated:

"'War Against All' was the first track I wrote for this album. It’s a fast one where the riffs are mostly inspired by my riffs from 'Battles In The North.' The lyrics are in the true Blashyrkh battle feel and mood for an opening track too. The frosty, raw, and fast battle songs in this style mean everything to me. I will never forget the early years, or disappoint the fans with slowing down the pace.

"Even though the studio work is necessary to get an ultimate recording, the writing process is obviously my favourite. I still write all the guitar riffs/music at home with the same old vibe, and the lyrics as well. The early days of black metal inspire me the most. Cold nights in the woods, on the mountains under the winter moon. That's what keeps the spirit alive, and the foundation to all our music." More...
