Four piece Norwegian death metal band EXECRATION are 13 years already into the business and have released three nerve wrecking albums till date. Their last album was pretty well received and they did a lot of shows both in homeland Norway and have also previously toured with death metal giants CANNIBAL CORPSE. They are now back with their fourth album which is slated to be released on July 14th, out via Metal Blade Records. The upcoming album is titled as, ‘Return To The Void‘. Today the band premieres a new song taken off ‘Return To The Void‘, named as “Hammers Of Vulcan“.
With the recent release of ‘Dance And Laugh Amongst The Rotten’ Carach Angren announced that they will be touring to North America with Childern Of Bodom, Thrash Metal band Lost Society and Progressive Death Metal band Uncured. Together they will be touring from the 31th of October till the 1th of December, I highly suggest every North American that is either into Death, Black or Thrash metal to pay them a visit!
After it being pushed back for 1 week Cradle Of Filth finally released the music video for ”Heartbreak And Seance” from their upcoming album ‘Cryptoriana’ which will be available on the 22th of September this very year via Nuclear Blast.

Bassist/vocalist Alex Dinan describes the new album as “A collection of experiences and viewpoints, that contrasts social commentary with introspective lyrics. A hard hitting Punk Rock mémoire, captured in 30 minutes of authentic energy.“

It appears that the rumors from early this morning are true. Ozzfest Meets Knotfest is absolutely stacked this year! The festival went extremely heavy this year booking acts such as Possessed, The Black Dahlia Murder, Goatwhore, Decrepit Birth, Code Orange, and many more incredible acts. This will be the festival’s second year taking place at Glen Helen Amphitheater in San Bernardino, California. 2016 was a very successful year with over 75,000 in attendance for Black Sabbath, Slipknot, Megadeth, Slayer, and more. This year the festival falls in early November on the 4th and 5th, tickets can be purchased here when they go on sale this Friday on July 14th. Here’s what Ozzy and Sharon have to say about this year:
OZZY OSBOURNE: “Last year’s show with Black Sabbath was just incredible and I’m thrilled to be coming back this year with Zakk, Tommy, Blasko and Adam to headline the 21st anniversary of Ozzfest.”
SHARON OSBOURNE: “Ozzfest Meets Knotfest is coming back for another round. Last year we had over 75,000 people attend and we have another great lineup this year with Ozzy’s first solo show in L.A. in more than six years. This is not just another show…it’s Ozzfest Meets Knotfest! And this year’s event means the world to me as we’ll be amongst friends like Prophets of Rage, Rob Zombie, Deftones, Marilyn Manson and Stone Sour…it’s going to be another amazing weekend.”
Just an hour ago, something legendary was released. For the last week, Havok and Allegaeon have been teasing something with satirical political photos with Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un, and Mike Tyson. The wait has finally ended and we get to see what it’s all about. Members from Allegaeon, Havok, Cephalic Carnage, and Job For A Cowboy all gathered together for the ultimate side project, The Nuclear Power Trio. Kim Jong Un is shredding on guitar, Donald Trump creating funky basslines, and Mike Tyson shredding on the drum kit. What is seen in the video below can’t be unseen. I’m hoping that this is just the start and there will be more music to come. See what the band members have to say and check out the instrumental jam below and be on the lookout for more music from The Nuclear Power Trio.
