POSSESSED To Make A Comeback With New Album After 31 Years

Facebooktwittermail

I literally jumped off my seat when I saw my YouTube notification pop up. Try pinching yourself, cause hell yes, this ain’t no dream. It is damn real. POSSESSED, arguably the first death metal band, although there’s always this ceaseless debate whether Chuck Schuldiner’s DEATH should be crowned with that title, but for me POSSESSED has been the pioneers of this extremely raw and rugged genre. After releasing their debut on 1985, ‘Seven Churches’ and then following it up with a quick sophomore ‘Beyond the Gates’ the following year, POSSESSED have been dormant for almost an eternity, well that’s how long you feel when you’re their fan. But thou shalt not wait any longer.  Continue reading

PAGANIZER Release Upcoming Album Details [New Song Stream]

Facebooktwittermail

Swedish death metal masters, PAGANIZER who is pretty famous among the death metal legions has been wrecking chaos ever since they arose from the ashes of TERMINAL GRIP in 1998. They are known to play the trademark and classic Swedish Death Metal, a style which was created by veterans such as Entombed, Morbid, At The Gates etc, and like most if not every Swedish Death Metal band they also encapsulate the essential character of the distinct genre, the buzzsaw guitars. It is the trademark sound of most bands hailing from the viking north. Having released nine full-lengths, two best of/compilation albums, three splits and five EPs, they are ready to pulverize the masses with a tenth studio album, adding in to the ever increasing brutality of their warchest. ‘Land Of Weeping Souls‘, their upcoming tenth installment is ready and recorded and is slated for a summer release, on August 5th, 2017, out via Indian record label, Transcending Obscurity.

As everyone in the metalverse knows by now, HellYeah is an American metal band who formed in 2006, bringing together Vinnie Paul of Pantera and Chad Gray of Mudvayne. The band has seen numerous changes over the years (including the lineup), but none more striking than the evolution of the music itself – going from what can only be described as a weird country music/metal hybrid to the band finding its way back to their original metal roots.   Continue reading

Hailing from the land where death metal is crafted like no where else. Yes, presenting to you Swedish death metal super-group Firespawn, rising from the ashes of the classic death metal act Entombed after its breakdown and featuring death metal stalwarts like Lars Göran Petrov (ex-Entombed) and Victor Brandt (ex-Entombed), Alex Friberg (bass; Necrophobic), Fredrik Folkare (guitar; Unleashed, ex-Necrophobic) and Matte Modin (drums; ex-Dark Funeral, Defleshed). This is one very strong super-group and is surely sending those chills down everyone’s spine since their 2015 debut album, ‘Shadow Realms‘. From the cradle of death metal in Stockholm, Firespawn is the collaboration of death metal veterans who have put out excellent records in their previous bands and have created a legacy of their own. Now, they’ve gelled up together to form an even more brutal and punishing group that plans to annihilate and take over the world, and to put out more impious, dark and unforgiving form of death metal. They’re not compromising on this one.

DYING FETUS Release “Fixated On Devastation” [Official Video]

Facebooktwittermail

They have always made me go, “How on earth can a three piece band churn out that shit?”. Dying Fetus has always been a reckoning brute force to begin with, spewing out albums after albums of sheer brutality and mind bending technical death metalDying Fetus‘ vocabulary of technical death metal is appealing in itself as they incorporate surplus amount of deathgrind elements, with the usual technicality. Honestly I prefer my tech death the way they have always put out, a pinch of grooves and breakdowns served with a delicious base of mind boggling riffs and technical solos and drumming. So if you’re like me,  I bet this album is one of those in your list of “Can’t wait for this album”. 26 years down the punishing line and they are back after a gap of five years since their last studio album, ‘Reign Supreme‘ in 2012. ‘Wrong One To Fuck With‘ is the eighth offspring Dying Fetus has come up with and is all set to release on June 23rd, 2017 via Relapse Records.

Hello metalheads, Rattlehead here with another piece of new release news. Looks like we’re not leaving the Indian metal scene anytime soon now. So, today’s news is a video release from the symphonic blackened death metal band from Mumbai, India called, ‘Demonic Resurrection‘. They have been around for 17 years and have put out five albums and two EPs all this while, which is incredible in itself. They have really pinned India on the global metal map and are rightly called the ‘flag bearers of Indian metal’, they have also done shows in reputed European festivals like Wacken Open Air in Germany, Bloodstock Festival in the U.K., and the beautiful MetalDays festival in Slovenia etc. It all began with their debut album titled, ‘Demonstealer’ in 2000 and since then you can actually see they have not only been a dynamic outfit but also constantly changed their approach to their sound along with a couple of line up changes. The new album, ‘Dashavatar’ that released on March 15 this year is a testimonial to this very fact. Spearheaded by vocalist & guitarist, Sahil Makhija, who is also involved in other side projects like Reptilian Death, Workshop and just so you know, for the awe factor, he also runs a cooking show, ‘Headbanger’s Kitchen’.

So, today’s news is something brutal. Yes, presenting you the new video release by Indian death metal band Plague Throat. So, Plague Throat are a death metal band from India, hailing from the city of Shillong, Meghalaya nestled beautifully on the peaceful hills of the North Eastern India. They rapidly rose to fame right after their highly acclaimed EP release back in 2013, entitled, ‘An Exordium To Contagion’, which set the ball rolling, especially creating havoc in the national underground scene. More success followed when they went on to represent India at the Wacken Open Air, 2014 edition, after triumphing in the national wacken metal battle finals. And ever since then, they haven’t turned back, but only continued to pulverize the fans here in India and abroad as well with their music and decimating live performances. I know cause I have had the honor of watching them live once when they shared the stage with the mighty Cannibal Corpse and deathcore stalwarts Suicide Silence in India. They have also opened for international hotshots like Dying Fetus, Carcass, Sikth, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Hacktivist. Continue reading
