Wvrm To Embark On North American December Tour

Greenville, South Carolina-based outfit Wvrm has announced a run of North American December tour dates supporting their newly unleashed EP, "Can You Hear The Wind Howl".

Deploying six track­s in barely nine minutes, Wvrm's "Can You Hear The Wind Howl" is a brutally-charged and volatile display of metallic grindcore unrest. Wvrm's caustic tones, belittling percussion, and searing vocals coalesce into an onslaught fans of Dead In The Dirt, The Drip, Torch Runner, and similar acts should not pass by. Can You Hear The Wind Howl was recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks, engineered and mixed by Kurt Ballou (Converge, Black Breath, Sect), mastered by Brad Boatright (Integrity, All Pigs Must Die, Nails), completed with artwork by Searing Limb, and released in late September through To Live A Lie Records.

Wvrm's "Can You Hear The Wind Howl" can be streamed in its entirety below:

Summoner´s Circle Release Debut Music Video

Summoner's Circle, the epic metal band from the USA, released their debut music video for the track “Become None”, from the upcoming full-length album "Tome". This video, originating from the otherworldly denizens of Mercury, successfully captures the essence of the band’s theatrically inspired, occult-infused brand of heavy metal. Shrouded figures, hidden books of lore, ceremonial daggers, human sacrifice and rituals of transformation all accompany the eerily anthemic musical score.

The video was filmed and edited by Norwegian artist Thomas Mortveit, and the music was recorded and produced by Canadian engineer Yanic Bercier at WaveTransform Studios.

Check out now Summoner's Circle "Become None" official music video below.

Black Absinthe Debut New Video "The Wild"

Black Absinthe's powerful heavy riffs and bass lines are reminiscent of classic thrash and new wave British heavy metal with a range of progressive to classic rock influence.

The album was the band's first professional recording to follow their three self-recorded EPs Live At Coalition (2014), Noise Complaint (2014) and Augusta (2012).

Taking a break from relentless touring of Ontario and Quebec during this summer, the band shot their latest video "The Wild" on the shores of Lake Ontario, inviting friends and fans to join them on a pirate ship where the outcome was rocking the boat, walking the plank and one hell of a party!
