Shadow Of Intent Release Lyric Video for ‘The Catacombs”

West Hartford, CT symphonic deathcore outfit, Shadow of Intent, have teamed up with the awesome folks at Mental Injection to premiere their lyric video for an all new track entitled ‘The Catacombs.’ The brand new track, which features guest vocal performances from Jason Evans (Ingested) and Dickie Allen (Infant Annihilator) is taken from their forthcoming highly anticipated, absolutely crushing sophomore album, ‘Reclaimer’, which is set to be released on April 28, 2017.

 

 

‘Reclaimer’ sees the band maturing and progressing, further developing their own signature sound. The album was once again produced and engineered by guitarist Chris Wiseman, with Buster Odeholm handling mixing and mastering, and features crushing guest vocal performances on several tracks from Jason Evans (Ingested), Dickie Allen (Infant Annihilator), Alex Shikolai (Slaughter To Prevail) and Tom Barber (Lorna Shore).

The band had the following to say about the new track:
“We stepped out of our comfort zone a bit for this song. This is the first song we’ve written that’s not focusing on melody or technicality, but rather heaviness and energy, all while trying to keep it ‘us.’ We tried to make every song on Reclaimer have a different approach and feel, rather than having every song on the album blend together. We also had the pleasure of featuring a couple friends of ours on this album, and for this track in particular both Jason and Dickie performed excellently.”

‘Reclaimer’ Track List:
1. We Descend
2. The Return
3. The Horror Within
4. The Catacombs (Ft. Jason Evans & Dickie Allen)
5. The Mad Tyrant’s Betrayal
6. The Gathering Of All (Ft. Alex Shikolai)
7. The Heretic Prevails
8. The Prophets Beckoning (Ft. Tom Barber)
9. The Forsaken Effigy
10. The Great Schism
11. The Mausoleum Of Liars
12. The Tartarus Impalement

Pre-orders for ‘Reclaimer’ in both physical and digital formats are now available via Shadow of Intent’s official Bandcamp page, Big Cartel, and via iTunes. ‘Reclaimer’ will also be available for streaming on Spotify and most other
digital streaming outlets following the album’s official release.

Shadow of Intent is a Halo inspired band that initially began as a two man project comprised of vocalist Ben Duerr and multi-instrumentalist/producer Chris Wiseman, and released an EP entitled ‘Inferi Sententia’ in July of 2014. The pair followed up the EP with their debut full length album, ‘Primordial,’ in January of 2016, which coupled with a steady stream of vocal and guitar based play through video clips, helped expand both their reach and their fan base by the tens of thousands. ShadowOf Intent was also the 2016 Readers Choice Breakout Band of the Year on Chugcore.net.

Moving into 2017, the band has grown from a two piece into a fully functioning tour ready unit, with Ben and Chris welcoming Federico Zuccarelli (Guitar), Keith Kohlhepp (Bass) and Matt Kohanowski (Drums) to the fold.

Oakland Death Merchants Necrot To Release Blood Offerings Via Tankcrimes

This June, Oakland, California-based classic death dealers Necrot will unleash the fetid fruits of their Blood Offerings full-length. Set for release on June 9th, 2017 on CD, LP, and digitally via Tankcrimes and on cassette in partnership with Sentient Ruin Laboratories, the eight-tracks comprising Blood Offerings were captured by Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer (Vastum, Graves At Sea), mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Nails, Gatecreeper), and will come sheathed in the unholy cover craftings of Marald Van Haasteren (Bolt Thrower, Baroness).

“Blood Offerings is the result of six years of hard work and is our first full-length record to be released by Tankcrimes,” relays drummer Chad Gailey. “The songwriting and performance on these eight songs is a step up from what people have heard previously. We feel that with this album, we have accomplished what we intended to create many years ago. It is always a great experience working with Greg Wilkinson at Earhammer and Scotty Heath at Tankcrimes because of the hard work and care they both put into each project they are a part of. We are thankful to everyone who has supported Necrot to get to this point.”

Guitarist Sonny Reinhardt agrees, “We made the best album ever made and can’t wait to hit the road and kill you all.” Adds guitarist Luca Indrio, “This is a death metal classic and you should fucking have it!”

God Dethroned releases first single of new album ‘The World Ablaze’

On May 5th Dutch Death Metallers God Dethroned will release their new album ‘The World Ablaze‘ worldwide via Metal Blade Records!

God Dethroned  comments: “‘The World Ablaze’ is our final album in the WWI trilogy. We aimed to create an album that is very dynamic and diverse. It contains typical GD riffing with loads of melodies and catchy hooks. The songs are perfect for our live shows as they contain many mid-tempo parts combined with faster and more brutal parts. Diversity to the max! Dan Swanö mixed the album in his typical fashion but without robbing the band of its own identity. Mastering was handled at the Wisseloord Studios where they also mastered albums for bands like Rammstein among many others, and they put the icing on the cake. The album sounds crystal clear and heavy as fuck at the same time. We are very proud to present this album during our upcoming Serpent Fest album release shows early May!

The World Ablaze‘ track listing:
01. A Call to Arms
02. Annihilation Crusade
03. The World Ablaze
04. On the Wrong Side of the Wire
05. Close to Victory
06. Königsberg
07. Escape Across the Ice (The White Army)
08. Breathing Through Blood
09. Messina Ridge
10. The 11th Hour

Internal Bleeding To Unleash “Final Justice” Digital Single Via Unique Leader Records

Long-running New York death metal pioneers Internal Bleeding will unleash a brand new single later this month via Unique Leader Records. Titled “Final Justice,” the track serves as a teaser from the band’s forthcoming full-length, Corrupting Influence, an album that promises to continue where their last album, the critically-acclaimed Imperium, left off.
“Final Justice” takes the patented Internal Bleeding sound into new, more intense levels. It’s still filled with all the hooks, slams, and grooves you’ve come to expect from the band, but at the same time, it’s more sophisticated, sharper, and focused than anything they’re released previously. From a recording standpoint, the band focused on achieving a very “live” sound by eschewing the heavily edited, paint-by-numbers productions that are so prevalent today.
“We really focused on the basics,” notes guitarist Chris McCarthy. “Just get on your instrument, beat the crap out of it, and try and nail it in one goddamn take.”
“We wanted to bottle the live energy we’re known for and try and get it on a recording,” adds guitarist Chris Pervelis, “and hopefully we achieved that with this recording.”

“Final Justice” will see official release digitally on April 21st, 2017 via Unique Leader.

The single comes in advance of Internal Bleeding’s impending live trek with Vader. The Strike Of The Empire US tour is set to commence on May 27th in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and will run through June 16th in New York City, New York, annihilating a total of twenty-one venues across the country. Additional support will be provided by Sacrificial Slaughter, Voices Of Ruin, and Micawber.

Slagduster Release New Heavyness

Hailing from Grand Forks, B.C, named after, as vocalist Shane Sherman explains, “a slang term local to our area for a piece of machinery that was used in the mines over a hundred years ago.” Isolation has most certainly bred inspiration in the shape of Slagduster. “We are the only four musicians in our small town driven to form a progressive metal band.”

 

Inspired by such giants as Goijira. Sikth, Meshuggah, Dillinger Escape Plan, Between The Buried And Me, Shane describes Slagduster’s sound as “progressive, groovy, creative, unique, heavy.”

 

Shane feels their new album ‘Deadweight’ will be well received by fans. “Naturally our sound has come a long way since our debut release in 2010. The music is more complex, and much more developed, still heavy, but even more groove based. Listeners can expect to be challenged by focusing on the compositions, or lost in the musical landscape.”

‘Deadweight’ is due out on May 5, 2017 and will be available through all major online retailers.

Firespawn release “Death By Impalement” off new album ‘The Reprobate’!

“Death By Impalement”, track number 5 on Firespawn’s upcoming second album The Reprobate, has been released for instant-grat and streaming today. If you liked the previously launched song “Blood Eagle”, you will embrace this one as well. The pre-order for “The Reprobate has started today, too.

Firespawn’s debut album “Shadow Realms” stirred up the international extreme metal scene quite a bit when it was released in 2015. The band’s second effort is the next logical step, solidifying FIRESPAWN strengths in writing blasting tunes of blasphemous death metal with furious melodies, wicked riffs, ultra-precise drums and hell hound growls.

The Reprobate will be released on April 28th 2017 as Digipak CD, deluxe LP (with Gatefold sleeve, 180 g vinyl, poster, inlay and the entire album on CD) and as digital download/stream.

“There is a lot of effort, time, work, and heart put into The Reprobate. I hope it will shine through. And I also hope it will make you drink insane amounts of beer and bang your head for Satan.” (Firespawn’s guitarist Victor Brandt on “The Reprobate”)

Fredrik Folkare – guitar
