PILE OF PRIESTS
Void to Enlightenment
Label: Self-released
Release Date: 12 December 2015
Genre: Progressive Death Metal | Country: USA

Pile of Priests is a traditional death metal from Denver, Colorado.  Formed in 2009, they quickly rose to local prominence with their demo release “Burn”.  Soon after, Pile of Priests was playing out of state, performing all over the west coast.  Two years following the release of their demo, the EP Unholy Death was released and now, in 2015, they are ready to release their first full length album, “Void to Enlightenment”.  Pile of Priests has had the distinct pleasure of opening up for bands such as Immolation, Abigail Williams, Artillery, and Vader.  Stylistically, Pile of Priests employs a vintage death metal style reminiscent of the early 1990s Florida bands but also incorporates technical and progressive passages that lend length to their songs.  This power trio brings their brutality in full force, proving they have fully earned a place in metal to stay.

Band:
Evan Salvador - Rhythm/Lead Guitars and Vocals
Patrick Leyn - Bass guitar and back up vocals
Evan Knight - Drums, backing vocals

SELVANS
Lupercalia
Label: Avantgarde Music
Release Date: 25 October 2015
Genre: Symphonic Folk Black Metal | Country: Italy
"Lupercalia" is the full length album by italian pagan black metal horde SELVANS; their second offering after February’s debut mini cd ‚Clangores Plenilunio’.
After almost a year spent on the road countrywise playing tens concerts in support of the newly formed band adn the debut mini, Selvans entered again the studio to record a real complex album.
Lupercalia sees again the band dwelling between keyboards-led symphonic black metal and atmospheric folk themes although not missing, not even for a minute, their aggressive and blackmetal rooted origins. Keyboards are again leading the italian wolves, pleasantly reminding us a certain symphonic black metal from the 90’s that nobody almost play anymore, as well as their stunning folk music parts, performed with real traditional instrumentation, that show up every now and then.

Sercati release their short movie "Poisoned Hunting"!‏ 
December 22, 2015

Sercati are proud to announce the release of their short movie "Poisoned Hunting"

Click the image to watch the movie:

Directed by Michel Garsou
Written by Yannick Martin
Based on a character created by Steve Fabry
Sound designed by Steve Fabry

It's a part of the story about The Nightstalker ( main character). The short movie takes place after Sercati's last release : the EP "In the Shadows and Sidewalks".

"In the Shadows and Sidewalks"

You can also download Sercati's audio book ( that tells the story of the Nightstalker) here

The story:
"The history of the Nightstalker is the epopee of an angel who decides to descend from Paradise in order to gain his humanity and his own existence. He will have to face disappointments and discoveries. But, he will also have to find his niche in the middle of mankind, to understand them, and to understand himself. He discovers the share of kindness in them, but also the deep suffering many of them feel. The angel feels that as a deep imbalance between the forces of good and evil. This awakening pushes him to help humanity in its search for balance. For him, it is also a question of gaining his redemption. He finds his niche while becoming like a guard: The Nightstalker. Lucifer sent some soldiers against him. The first fight was between the Nightstalker and the Hound from Hell (Album: The Rise of The Nightstalker), the enemy changed the mind of the hero and his way to see the world. We assisted to his doubt, his hidden fight with his faith and finally to the Rise of the Nightstalker. Now, the prince of darkness sent to him the Anesthetist, whose barbarism is equalled only by his madness, and the Nightstalker will be careful this time (Album: EP- In the Shadows and Sidewalks)."

KRASSEVILLE
Nous sommes faux
Label: Avantgarde Music
Release Date: 11 January 2016
Genre: Apocalyptic Folk / Noir | Country: France

Suicidal & fashionnable western French rock music, that’s how the Krasseville gang band calls their music, and indeed this is gonna be a serious experience for all the listeners! Although band members have grown their roots in the black metal field (with side band Ordo Blasphemous) and you can still feel that roughness and a certain urban anger, Krasseville music definitely sounds more like a Kusturica’s movie soundtrack. A collection of short chansons noires with a Nick Cave-ish edge and an overall feeling of intellectual perdition, plus the many instrumental parts will make this album enjoable also by non-french music fans, anybody into high class music really, as indeed they play their instruments with a remarable mastery and extra fine relish!!!

SOL
The Storm Bells Chime
Label: Avantgarde Music
Release Date: 11 January 2016
Genre: Experimental / Martial Ambient Doml | Country: Denmark

SOL is a Danish doom metal band started by Emil Brahe in the early 00′s, debuting in 2007 on Ván Records with the crushing funeral doom album “Let There Be A Massacre” and since releasing numerous albums in a variety of styles.
While most SOL works have a common denominator in themes of fear, esotericism and destruction, they differ in the form they are presented in: From acoustic drones over dark reed organ atmospherics and occult folk music. “The Storm bells chime” shows indeed a band with destruction’s anger and aims, but elegantly kept within dusk-music atmospheres: this is the record you’ll want with you on the last day on Earth if you’ll die uncomplete….

For fans of BLOOD AXIS and mid-career’s ULVER.

ANCESTORS BLOOD & HEERVADER
Ancestors Blood & Heerva
Label: Heidens Hart Records
Release Date: December 2015
Genre: Black Metal | Country: Finland and Netherlands

Finally out in December 2015: the long awaited split with Ancestors Blood and Heervader. A highly anticipated, high profile cooperation between Finland and The Netherlands. Ancestors Blood is one of the leading atmospheric black/pagan metal bands during the last decade, while Heervader is a rather unknown project from two known individuals who also active in other bands.
Originally announced many years ago as a 7" EP split, this was upgraded to a full length album split, featuring over 20 minutes of unique music for both bands. It was expanded for two reasons: the first for not wanting to split up the three Heervader tracks, as they were originally written and recorded as three songs part of a whole. The second reason was the high quality recordings that were made of Ancestors Blood's last ever live appearance at the 2014 Veneration Of The Dead festival in The Netherlands.

OLD FOREST
Dagian
Label: Avantgarde Music
Release Date: 11 January 2016
Genre: Black Metal | Country: UK

Formed way back in time (1998) and releasing almost immediately the debut album “Into the old forest” on Mordgrimm Records (the second incarnation of Uk’s glorious Cacophonous Records), but then again taking a rather and unnatural long hiatus until 2007 with their sophomore “None more black” album got released on their own label. The sound of Old Forest on Dagian is much more atmospheric than we used to know them for their previous albums’ grimness: the large use of keyboards, effects and weird voices give them a value-add in terms of mysticism although keeping the band into a conceptual rawness that still roots them into classic Black Metal, with the final result that (for all these reasons) reminds us of the most glorious episodes of Necromantia’s career, sharing with them a similar dominant role of Bass guitar!

The band features members from IN THE WOODS and CARPATHIAN FOREST!

FROSTBITE signed with TMINA Records
December 16, 2015

Canadian Progressive Black n’ Roll band Frostbite signed a deal with Tmina Records for the release of their “Etching Obscurity” debut album. Limited CD + Digital release will be available worldwide on February 5th.

Frostbite, hailing from Montreal, Canada, is finally approaching the release of their first full-length album entitled “Etching Obscurity”. Formed in 2012 by Max Allard, the band has evolved a lot since the release of their 2013 EP “Through the Grave”. The band has since developed a more progressive melodic sound and an overall different approach to the composition and style. Since then, the line-up has changed considerably. Along with founding member Max, the band has taken on 4 new members. A collaboration from many different musical backgrounds and influences gives the band it’s now Progressive Black n’ Roll sound. After a year in studio, the band is proud to release something unique and refreshing, which will leave the listener with an experience from beginning to end. Releasing on February 5th 2016, this full length will not be one to miss out on.

Ensight were born in 2009 from the minds of Gabriele Caselli (Ex-Eldritch, Ex-Domine), Raffahell Dridge (Eldritch) and his brother Dimitri Meloni. This first core of the band immediately began to write material for a possible album.
In the meantime they started the auditions for a singer and a bass player and after some weeks they found in the young and talented Alessio Consani (Eldritch) their six strings element. So they were ready to develop the sound of Ensight.
Working hard on the new stuff they understood the band was instinctively composing a concept album, so they created a storyline for the lyrics that could follow step by step the atmosphere conceived for the music. Sooner they built up material for an upcoming album but they chose to record only a part of their work to quickly knock at labels' door and to finish improving some tracks that not completely satisfy the band.
After a very long time and many auditions they found in Antonio Cannoletta the powerful and versatile voice they were looking for! The band can finally end the recordings!

BLACKDEATH
Totentaz
Label: Heidens Hart Records
Release Date: 1 January 2016
Genre: Black Metal | Country: Russia

The material here was writing during and right after the "Satan macht frei" (2004) album, and as such perfectly fits in the evolution of Blackdeath towards apocalypse. Upon first hearing, you will find the material has the primitive aggression like "Bottomless armageddon" and the previous albums, but upon closer listening you'll find the riffs and song writing are slowly morphing into their later sound as heard on "Vortex" and "Katharsis" albums (...)

Omnipotent Transdimensional Soulfire
Label: Avantgarde Music

Label: Avantgarde Music

Genre: Avantgarde Black Metal | Country: Ukraine

Virvel Av Morkerhatet was formed from the ruins of the band Den Of Winter in 2008 and in 2010 released the debut album “Forsaken Hate Sickness”, mainly including material accumulated over the years of the Den of Winter existence. In 2013 the band changed their course and started to work on the second full-length album, which was going to mark a new era of Virvel Av Morkerhatet.
During this time band members' ideology has totally changed and the Music turned into an avant-garde black metal with some other influences, imagine a heavenly mix between Ved Buens Ende and Deathspell Omega!
In 2015 the band finished recording of their second album and got signed by Avantgarde Music and is now prepared to inject fresh "disease" in the nervous system of the world in early 2016.
Virvel Av Morkerhatet is a hard atom that represents the defect of the human thought, that is multiplied by self-destruction of transcendental consciousness. Anticosmos through Black Magic.

ABSOLUTUS
Pugnare in iis quae obtinere non possis
Label: Heidens Hart Records
Release Date: 14 October 2015
Genre: Black Metal | Country: Belgium

Absolutus are a Belgian band shattering the shelter of the unconscious since 2003. Their lyrical content deals primarily with nihilism, metaphysical journeys, eerie experiences and psychology, inspired by writers such as E.M. Cioran and F. Nietzsche.
Starting out as a traditional black metal entity, appearing out of the nothingness with "Ostendit quam nihil sumus", released in 2005 by Goatowarex (Lifelover, Nachtmysium, Mortifera, Urfaust, Austere, ...)
Their absolution shifted on the highly anticipated second album "Pugnare in iis quae obtinere non possis", towards a more aesthetical and experimental approach. This album is in every aspect a highly recommended and truly monumental journey showing much more diversity compared with the debut album, with morbid and violent atmosphere breathing through the complex songs and dark interludes.
Summoned in the the city of dirt and corruption, Brussels, at Blackout studio with help of Neraath and Phorgath from Enthroned horde, expect a massive and devastating monolith of album. Fanatics of new Abigor, Blut Aus Nord, Antaeaus as well as more modern acts like Deathspell Omega and Svartidauði, take heed!

“Once eerie radiance and material presence are required, Cloud and Abyss will join hands to vomit uncelestial particles.”

HEIMDALLS WACHT
Der Untergang der alten Welt
Label: Heidens Hart Records
Release Date: December 2015
Genre: Black Metal | Country: Germany

Out of print for years and in high demand all those years, Heidens Hart Records are proud to finally bring this album back on the shelves. Even though it was only the second release from Heimdalls Wacht, back in 2006, the album exploded from the underground and many of the tracks have grown out to become semi-legendary tracks. "Die Tränen des alten Wächters" and "Weißes Pferd auf rotem Grund" have been part of the regular setlist for many years "Weltenbrand" is a very private and personal song for many people, and when played live recently for the first times, the audience was in awe upon every performance. "Des Nordens Stern" is of course a classic hymne for the band that should need no introduction. This reissue will finally be out this month (December 2015). Over an hour of pure antichristian pagan black metal, filled with mourning and anger.

Please note: no remaster, no bonus tracks, same artwork, just as the band and we want it.

Structural Disorder formed during the summer of 2011 by Erik Arkö (Bass/Vocals) Johannes West (Electric Accordion/Vocals) and Markus Tälth (Guitar/Vocals). The band was later completed with the arrival of Karl Björk (Drums) and Hjalmar Birgersson (Guitar/Piano/Vocals).

The work with the EP ” A PRELUDE TO INSANITY” began instantly once the band was complete and on january 1th, the recording session began. The recording session took place night time during the period january 1th – january 5th at Högskolan Dalarna in Falun. The EP was in part produced by the band, but also by sound engineer John Nilsson Tysklind, who has recently released an album with his band Rhinestone. Co – engineer Scott Crocker had also a large part in the form that ” A prelude to insanity” took.

The EP was recorded during four ten hour shifts, followed by a month of mastering, mixing and general exploring of numerous ideas that came to mind during this phase in the production. The EP was released on the 9th of march 2012.

With more material and higher ambitions the band once again entered the studio in Falun in january 2013, this time with Scott Crocker as the sound engineer. The recording took place in the studio as well as in Stockholm. Eventually, the Full lenght debut, entitled "THE EDGE OF SANITY" was released on the 4th of february 2014.

Following a number of gigs to promote THE EDGE OF SANITY whilst simultaneously writing new material, the band decided to enter the studio to record their second full length album during the summer of 2015. This time the band worked together with renowned producer/engineer Jocke Skog (Clawfinger/Feared/Åfysatan and many more). The new album DISTANCE will be released through Lion Music on the 25th of February 2016!

A packed Mini CD with both older songs and songs not used on the new album. Its also the last recording featuring Rogga Johansson in Bone Gnawer, as he then left the band.

SUNLESS RISE Melodic Death Metal‏ 
December 03, 2015

SUNLESS RISE
Unrevealed
Self Released
November 30, 2015

Russia's SUNLESS RISE will surely raise quite a ruckus with their new debut "Unrevealed" album, filled with soaring, epic, majestic progressive Melodic Death Metal. It may be because of their charismatic, stirring songcraft, with arrangements long and flowing, and the musicianship is top-notch. The guitarwork and keyboardwork here is of note — the leads are stellar, and the riffing is off the hook, adding a refined Prog-Metal touch without compromising the overall vibe of the album. This is what a lot of bands wish they sounded like. Haunting and infectious atmospheres, that will garner play after play. Fans of Children Of Bodom, Wintersun, and Finnish Metal will be all over this.

SUNLESS RISE's debut "Unrevealed" follows their highly acclaimed 2009 self titled EP. Which received high marks from reviewers worldwide. Now 6 years after that amazing release, "Unrevealed" is out now in Europe, and will be officially released December 4th everywhere else.

About the album "This is the story of a man who destroyed mankind. The man who played a crucial role in shifting humanity toward the final catastrophe - but managed to flee into the mysterious outer limits beyond time and space, life and death. This journey starts off with the world’s end and takes a turn into twisted realms of ancient cults, forgotten cultures and revelatory subconscious experiences. This is the story of our Past and Future colliding into one man’s spiritual rebirth. A parable with an unimaginable finale." - Sunless Rise

RAZE - "MANKIND´S HERITAGE"‏ ‏ 
December 01, 2015

RAZE
MANKIND´S HERITAGE
Suspiria Records
15 December 2015

Raze was formed in As Pontes (A Coruña, Spain) in 2007, when Sebas, Marcos and Moro started to get together from time to time to play some versions and hang out.
Gradually they came to realize the musical taste they shared and that the style that unites them is thrash metal, so they decided to take it as a group project and for that, and almost by chance, they brought in Macaco and Samuel.

RAZE’s style can be defined as thrash metal, close to bands like Megadeth, Slayer, Kreator, Annihilator, or, in general, the whole classic thrash metal, similar to (relatively speaking) the Bay Area’s or German’s thrash metal, but closer to a progressive hint and the evolution of the style towards new sounds.
By mid 2010 Samuel had to leave the band, so Macaco began to take care of the voices aswel.

In 2015 Raze have edited its LP “Mankind’s heritage”.
