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!”

Blood Offerings preorders are currently available here. The limited vinyl edition comes as a foil-stamped, gatefold deluxe LP available in four color variants: 150 in purple splatter, 350 in gold splatter, 500 in black, and 1000 in gold. Wax preorders include an instant digital download of the band’s first single, “Empty Hands.”

For digital preorders, visit the Tankcrimes Bandcamp page here where you can nab the record for $6.66 and sample the menacing sounds of “Empty Hands.”

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

GOD DETHRONED line-up:
Henri Sattler – vocals/guitars
Mike Ferguson – guitars
Jeroen Pomper – bass
Michiel van der Plicht – drums

Unleash The Archers Release First Track & Music Video From Upcoming Album

“Cleanse The Bloodlines”is the first track off of Unleash The Archers upcoming album Apex!
This one is really going to get you banging your head!  With chest-thumping bass lines and penetrating guitar melodies, Unleash The Archers newest release compels you to chant with fists raised high in the air “All hail heavy metal!”
Powerful front woman Brittney Slayes states:
“We are beyond stoked to finally debut a track from the new album, and this song was unanimously chosen as the first single by the whole band, no question. It’s a heavy song so we wanted a heavy video, and we think that Richard (Olak, director) did an incredible job of capturing the essence of the album perfectly. It was a brutal two days of filming in zero degree weather, but it was worth it, and we think it turned out well. We filmed with a 6K RED Weapon, one of the best cameras out there right now, and the cinematic quality adds to the dark nature of the lyrical content.  We think our fans are really going to like this one!”
Apex Track Listing:
1. Awakening
2. Shadow Guide
3. The Matriarch
4. Cleanse The Bloodlines
5. The Coward’s Way
6. False Walls
7. Ten Thousand Against One
8. Earth And Ashes
9. Call Me Immortal
10. Apex

From its opener “Awakening” to the closing title track, the listener will partake in a furious adventure, weaving through elements of the strongest metal genres of our time. You’ll be guided by the shimmering heat of sweeping lead guitars, face-melting solos, deafening growls, pummeling bass lines and of course the thrilling hooks of Brittney Slayes’ king-size voice. Heartrending choirs defending heavy metal evermore beckon you into battle!
